Status changes

Yesterday I felt like I was put in my spot! I ran into an old client while I was at the zoo with my sister and nephew. This client has a little baby that is 3.5 months old and adorable by the way! I asked her how she was liking motherhood and she replied that she loved it! She than asked how I was doing and went on to say how according to my facebook status' it would seem that I am not enjoying it all that much! Ouch! Which I than replied that yes somedays were long which is most likely the days that my status' would reflect! I had a pit in my stomach after that and started wondering how many people think that I am not enjoying being a mother! So my mission is to correct that idea! I love being a mother and I would not change it for the world! Yes somedays are long and trying..but is that not the life with a toddler?? Is that not their mission at this age to test every boundary possibly and push every button possible? Yes..i think so! But as a mother it is my mission to teach and to correct. Somedays I fail and loose my patience more easily than not and otherdays I feel like i'm ontop of things. The nickname "monkey" has stuck with Lucas for so long now and it appears that it will stick for many years to come!! He is mischeavous, he is busy, he is funny/goofy, he is lovable. He is also sensitive and quiet at times! And he is a boy, he gets dirty and eats rocks/dirt/pinecones/ants. And I love him none the less! I love watching him grow and accomplish new tasks and say new words! I believe being a mother is the most humbling of experiences that anyone can ever have! It has taught me to be patient, to watch my attitude, to be selfless, to be cheesy, to forget about the giant mess in the kitchen and sit on the floor and play with my child, that a bigger house/nicer yard/more possessions mean nothing in comparison to having your family, that I need God more than anything, and that the little things are made so much clearer now! I'm not going to the end of the day Lucas' bedtime could not come soon enough but by the morning I am so happy to walk in to his room and great him with the biggest hug and kiss ready to start our day of adventures once more!! So I apologize for the status' that dont relfect the huge blessing that my child is to me..I will be working on changing those! More than likely there will be times that they reflect the kind of day that I am having but more often than not I find I am not the only one in that boat!! Right?? Right??

  1. Hey! I would never have thought that you don't like being a mom! I think you're just honest about what your days look like!

  2. It is hard sometimes isn't it!? Some times I think this is soo easy but then other moments it is tough and you wonder how you will go on! You are not alone and I can almost always sympathize with you. Be encouraged, you are a great Mom I'm sure and are doing an amazing job!

  3. I love the pictures, he is just too cute and definately looks like a monkey!
    Being a mom is one of the toughest and most rewarding jobs in the world, you're bound to have a bad day and I don't think you're doing anyone a favour by hiding it. Some people are very private about any uncertainty or complaints and would never put it out in the cyber world while others, like you & I, are willing to because that's life. You are doing a wonderful job!!
