Yes life is busy. Yes we all have a lot to do in our 24 hour days. Doing the "mundane" can ABSOLUTELY feel like the straw that broke the camel’s back on certain days... you know... washing the dishes, doing the laundry, packing lunches etc. etc. etc.
BUT - and this is a BIG BUT...
Waking up in a house with young children is truly a new experience every day! It never ceases to amaze me how they manage to jump out of bed with a level of enthusiasm and a spring in their step that is enough to make any adult envious – never mind completely perplexed.
I am all for BIG families – I am a part of one. We are loud, opinionated and loads of fun! There is truly no limit to the amount of fun we can all have together, but whilst my son has many cousins (with a new addition on the way any day now) he - is an only child, and I think I speak for ALL mothers sitting in the “only child” sphere, when I say – we DEFINITELY spoil more to compensate for the lack of siblings…
Nobody wants their child to be an over confident cocky brat, but every parent wants their child to hold a healthy level of confidence. When I was a kid, I had no problems with public speaking and even won 'best speaker of the school' once upon a time, but as I got older and life shared all its trials, tribulations and experiences with me, I lost that confidence somewhere along the line…
With most of us ladies being career driven these days, it can become overwhelming at times to keep a level head when it comes to managing all the ‘other’ responsibilities which come hand in hand with motherhood and family life – no, seriously – do the clothes in my house have something against me that they need me to repeatedly clean them?! Haha! – EVERYDAY is laundry day in my house! Literally! – But, it makes my OCD heart happy, and that generally means that everyone else around me is happier too… smile and wave, smile and wave…
“It doesn’t matter what size you are,” said the owl. “Just use your brains and you will find that you are big enough to do anything.
A few years ago I asked my little boy what the most important thing to him in the whole wide world was. His reply - His teddies. He had no sooner announced their great importance to me when he rushed off to fetch all of them. On his return, he seated each and every teddy on the bed and began explaining to me why each one was important to him.
