I couldn't have said it better myself!

Have you seen this?

Click here for the link. I tried to post the article here, but I couldn't get the formatting right so that it was readable.

I'm not posting this in some self-righteous attempt to justify my current existence, but more as a way to explain to myself and others why it seems like have less patience (and more patience than ever in the same breath), less time, less energy (and more energy than ever), less self-respect (and more than ever) and A LOT fewer complete thoughts than I ever had before.

When I sit down at the end of the day and wonder what I did with my time, I'll just read this over and over and thank my lucky stars that I've been given the chance and the gift to take on this crazy challenge called motherhood. And then I'll go have a cocktail!


That one girl said...

I love it! I went to my husbands work event last night and one of the girls was talking to me about having kids. "I want kids, but could NEVER be a stay at home mom. I would be WAY too bored, I have to move, to be busy to always be doing something." HUH?! What do you think we do, sit around and watch soap operas all day? All I said was, I loved staying at home and that would sooo amazing if I found a few minutes to be bored. They just don't get it. Luckly someone was there who used to be a SAHM and said, "When I went beck to work, I actually found it so much more relaxing, less busy and way easier than staying at home, never underestimate a stay at home mom." THANK YOU!
