i’m thinking about closing down this blog.  doesn’t seem like i can find the time to write these days.  i haven’t made a definite decision yet but i’m leaning towards pulling the plug.  I’ll let you know what i decide.

it’s okay…

to admit that sometimes when you’re child is crying for no apparent reason, throwing a fit of outrageous proportions for no obvious reason, that you aren’t sure you can take it anymore. 

to wonder what you did to deserve the most difficult days.

to wonder if you can handle even the moderately difficult days.

to daydream about what life would have been like had you not become a mother, to dream of all the things that you could have done or would be doing.

to think that maybe there are other people out there more able, more capable and better suited for this job. 

to talk about those difficult moments, those not so nice thoughts, with other people and not to be embarassed or ashamed of them.

to realize that you are a person, a human being, with needs apart from those of your children.

to satisfy those needs.

to follow your dreams.

to realize that you are only one person, only human, only capable of so much.

to ask for extra hugs and kisses.

to take time for yourself.

to ask for help when you need it.

to realize that you are loved for who you are, not for being perfect or a superwoman, but for just being you, imperfections and all.

happy mother’s day.

is OVER!!!  at least, I hope it is.  i guess it’s not really over until we close on the house and that won’t be until mid-june.  but we have a contract!  so that’s good.  right?  i’ll fill you in more in the days to come.
