Happy Mother's Day!

Being a mom is, by far, the hardest thing I've ever done. Today started off really rough and by the time our M-day celebration was about to start with my own mother & mother-in-law, I felt sick to my stomach from anxiety and worry about Sophia refusing to sleep and everything being chaotic and my apparent inability to just "get on top" of my life these days.

But, after some time and a bit of encouragement from my mamas and lots of thoughtfulness and love from my hubby, and lastly, Sophia finally sleeping for awhile - I'm feeling better.

So, the journey continues and hopefullly each day I'll become one tiny iota more patient and more confident until one day I start to feel like maybe I'm an ok mama after all. I sure do love my girl, I can say that. She's pretty much the best thing I've ever seen and I hope she knows that.

Happy Mother's Day Mamas, enjoy your day, cause goodness knows it's a REAL job ;)

I have been thinking about you a lot lately, Emile. Things here are hectic with Lilly's school about to let out for summer, but I swear we will get together soon.

My girls were nutters on MD also. Maybe there was something released into the air!
