Sometimes being a mom is really hard. Some days you just want to lock your bedroom door and cry yourself to sleep for the next 48 hours. Because it's not easy. It's not easy to juggle work and mom and wife and house and friends and family. It is very easy to feel overwhelmed and just want to chuck it all and say forget it.
But then, every once in awhile you have this perfect moment. This treasured time. This unbelievable day and you realize that this is what matters. The laundry piled in the corner doesn't matter. The dishes overflowing in the sink don't matter. The toys strewn across the floor don't matter.
You and your little ones having a day with no cares, no worries, no responsibilities, no timeline...that's what matters. A day where mommy remembers what it's like to be a kid. A day where mommy says yes to everything. A day where kids still cry and still don't listen, but mommy doesn't care. A time to just let go and say forget everything else and just focus on this moment. Be in this moment. Don't race ahead to dinner time or tomorrow's troubles. Enjoy right now.
Climb to new heights.
Explore new lands.
March to the beat of your own drum.
And finish it all off with ice cream.
Naps and calories be damned!
