Synonyms: flounder, struggle, squirm, wriggle, splash, stumble, blunder, etc.
My eyes only flutter open,
When I hear the door creak.
Brother lies still beside me,
Finally resting peacefully.
The night was a struggle.
My essences left my body.
I stand hollow and empty.
Yelling and chattering,
Never end with these two.
Food is out.
Why such a battle.
I squirmed and wriggled,
To get one meal done.
Please nap time come.
Chaos is constant.
Never a moment of peace.
Questions spewing, toys flying, emotions rising.
Will it ever be done?
Screams of protest.
Stumbles, fumbles, thrash, splash.
Silence follows all those blunders.
Regrets and upsets,
Fill my brain.
Retrace your steps,
To learn again.
Being a mama is tough. One child is different than two. Especially when your first child is intelligent and stubborn. She is determined to do it her way. He way or the highway. Except that doesn’t work when it’s supposed to be my way.
Little man is so mellow compared to her. He is smart too, noticeably for his age. My life will be interesting; calm way to put it.
But I struggle. I don’t know what I’m doing. I try my best and always some part of the day seems to be….Blarghbaaaaaaaaaa!!! If you couldn’t tell, that was me having a meltdown.
And I know it will continue to be difficult if we continue to add to our family. But hopefully I can find that flow…a current of productive moments.
I do have those moments. And I need to try and focus on the happy sweet moments of the day at bedtime. It’s difficult. But I know they probably outnumber the bad moments.
To all young moms out there. You are doing a great job. And all grandma’s now, you did amazing job raising your kids. Because they decided to continue the line of family. Your kids feel comfortable and confident enough to raise kids on their own.
Thank you to my mom!❤️
I will starting to paint soon. And some of the art from my blog will finally be on canvases!! I’m excited to get my art out into the world. 🎊
The word of the day today might be a negative word. But it helps show you the good in life. Like the picture above. Always after something bad, the good will come into focus, and shine in your life. Have a wonderful day ❤️
