Thursday Thoughts

Heff is fitting in nicely now. I've heard him crow once. So nice to hear.

The next couple of days will be spent on buying and installing fence for the cows. Not me of course. I'll be busy taking the kids to swimming lessons, cooking and making sure the baby naps.

Sometimes I resent that. That I have to be the one to do all that stuff. I would much rather be shopping for my garden supplies. Can't do that when you have 3 kids stuffed in a mini van.

Some day. Some day they will be old enough to leave at home to do their own thing for 1/2hr while I scoot into town to pick something up. They won't always require so much supervision and carrying.

I know...enjoy it while it lasts.

Just having a moment.

It will pass.

Dude, if ever there was a day when I felt the same, it's today. Three years of chronic sleep deprivation culminated in a ginormous "hissy fit" and me taking the "day off" today. That's right: I've called in sick. Today, I'm not the mommy. I've handed over the reins to avoid doing anything I may regret....
If I could only sleep....

I can relate. I grew up on the farm, no live on an acreage not far from the farm. I have three children, ages 5 and twins 2 and am expecting my fourth. I soooo want to put a garden in this year but start calculating how many months I will be when it's time to harvest it and will I be able to bend?

I too think of the day when my babies will be old enough that I can do some of the things I dream about. But until then I am going to find the glory in my moments now. Afterall I was blessed and I just have to keep on the path God has intended for me.

Glad Heff is making some noise.

I have those 'moments' almost daily! Motherhood is just a demanding career. But it's so much better than the alternative ~ working outside the home while someone else gets to be with your kids!
