{But I Wouldn't Have It Any Other Way}

Right now my life seems to mostly consist of wiping tiny butts and ninja crawling in and out of my own bed. Holding hands and scaring off the bedtime monsters. I'm here to kiss the boo boos and sing babies to sleep. I spend my days repeating myself until I'm out of breath and picking up the same puzzle pieces and blocks over and over again. I make food for it to be half eaten, or even untouched. I cater to a tiny human, supplying endless milk around the clock. I answer all the questions and make sure that everyone's had a good nap. I wash all the clothes and I keep the dishes clean. My hair stays greasy or in a ball cap and the nursing pads stay soaked. I play with play doh and keep the bubble machine full. I spend my days deciphering words, doing baby talk and eating one-handed. I do my best to find ways to contribute to my family financially while staying home to care for my babies, and when I can't, I rack my brain trying to find ways to cut back and save. I shuttle bud to and from school and the park, with sis wrapped tight around me. I make sure the bath water is colorful and bubbly and that hands are held at bedtime. And at the end of the day I find myself worrying that I haven't contributed enough or doubting that I was the best mom that I could be. It's a beautiful mess full of heart and patience, day after day. I spend my days putting everyone before myself.

Not a second of my day belongs to me, but I wouldn't have it any other way. 
Who else can relate? All my mommas, SAHM's, working moms, we all do the most. Pat yourselves on the back!
