This mom business is tricky stuff. There are some days where I feel like I am super mom and others where I want to lock myself in a closet and eat a whole sleeve of Oreos. Or a family size bag of Doritos. Or both. Some days I let the TV entertain my two toddlers for an embarrassing amount of time. I often pour a large pile of puffs on the floor to distract my kids so I can use the bathroom without peering eyes or awkward questions. There are days where I feel like my two year old spends more time in time out than out of it. I feel as though I scream more than I talk. I truly don't remember what sleep is. My body is cover in glorious stretch marks and I will never be able to jump on a trampoline again. Somedays my kids only eat fruit snacks, and I let them. 

My boys have changed my world.  They have taught me that even on my horrible mom days they still love me. I feel so blessed to be their mom. I feel like I need to soak up every single second with them before they grow up and stop giving me smoochie kisses. I love how they always make sure I buy the princess fruit snacks and how they always grab me one in the morning so I can have breakfast in bed. I love that madden always grabs an extra treat for Nash when he leaves dance class. I love when they all climb in Owens crib in the morning and giggle. I love how they always tell me I am the perfect mom for them. I love hearing them talk about Jesus and how he made planet earth and all the buggies. They are so Christlike and innocent. They make the good days outweight the bad. Motherhood is a tricky business, one that I'm still trying to figure out. I love it though. I thank my Heavenly Father everyday for three beautiful healthy boys.

It's so nice to hear that someone else feels the same way I do! Hang in there, you're doing a great job! Your boys are amazing!

For some reason this made me cry! Probably because I feel the same way. Being a mom is definitely hard, but also so wonderful!
