Super mom

I can remember thinking... How will I be able to handle three kids? How will I be able to do it all and get everything done and meet everyone's needs?

And now two months into life with a 5 year old, 4 year old and newborn I see that you just do it.

No, not everything's done, no I can't do it all, and no, I can't meet everyone's needs (that is Gods job).

But you survive and as long as the kids are clean and fed (thank goodness Julia takes showers now and mark can bathe himself) and you remember to tell them you love them. It's all good.

No, my house is no longer immaculate. But we make our beds each morning and we make sure the dishes are out of the sink before we head out the door.

No, our outfits are not always matching. But I have two big kids who can help mommy and dress themselves and believe me it saves so much time in the morning.

No, my meals are not always planned a month ahead of time (who does that?!?) but my kids tummies are full and we thank God for always being kind and generous and providing for us.

Super mom? No

Real mom--yes!

  1. I have 3 kids who are 12, 10 and 5 now. They make me smile everyday! My house has never been immaculate since, but I wouldn't have it any other way.


Please leave an encouraging comment...I'd love to hear from you!
