The Toughest Job

Its hard to be a Mother. I have seen just how hard it is first hand these last 4 weeks. Alone, just me being the disciplinarian, the cook, the driver, the soother, the reader, the only comforter.
I have been tired, sick, and frustrated. I have yelled, cried, had my patience tested, threatened, pleaded, screamed and given it.
I have done it all. I have had the worst, most trying days as a Mom these last couple of weeks. The ones where I wanted to not be a mother to anyone anymore.
Two days ago I had one of those days, but then right before I put them to bed again, right when I was thinking, I can't go on anymore, I just cannot do it one more day, my daughter said "Mommy, you're the best Mommy and I love you".

That is what makes me go on.
I will have bad days but the good always outweighs the bad and you go on.
You just do.
And for that, I am thankful.


  1. *sigh*

    it's a good thing you didn't sell them, huh?!

  2. nita, it was a very good thing. : )

  3. Those are always the ones that get ya, and they come at such a surprising time that you KNOW it's real, and to have a kid say that to you is amazing and should help you re=engergize for the coming days. Always take power from those things,

  4. Aw Tuesday- I think that you are an awesome Mom! I have been alone for 3 days- I could not imagine 4 weeks! They can be little devils, but when they say something like that it makes it all better :)
