It won't be like this for long

I'm sure you've all seen this video or heard the song on the radio. It's always a reminder to me to just stop. Stop the to-do lists. Is it really that big of a deal if my dirty clothes sit in the hamper for one more day? If there are more dishes in the sink than I prefer? If my blog isn't updated on a consistent routine? No, no, no. Is it really a big deal if I miss playing with my son. Yes. To be honest, I've never been the most productive person on the planet. Tadd will agree 110%. I am a procrastinator like you've never seen. I enjoy sitting on the floor with Brogan all day long and playing, reading, and singing with him. BUT, my guilty conscience always starts blabbering away at me. "Go clean the toilet", it nags. "Go throw the wet towels in the dryer before they sour", it continues. "You haven't made the bed in a week!" It's screaming at me now. I guess it's the conflict of being a mommy and staying at home. My job is to take care of Brogan AND our house. But I'm reminding MY annoying conscience that Brogan comes before the toilet, the laundry, and the million other chores that seem to never end. It WON'T be like this for long. Now, who's going to remind me about this post when baby #2 comes along and I'm pulling out my hair?!?

You're so right. I tend to stress myself out all the time that the house isn't clean. I too need to be reminded that all that matters are my children and the house can wait. You're right, it's not going to be like this for long!

That song leaves me sobbing! I can't hear it and right now hormones are on overdrive!!

Children are such a blessing, doesn't matter if you have 2 or 20! You will have those moments of crying and praying to God to help you but the good always outweighs the bad. I can't imagine my life without my gang. It really is amazing how God opens your heart to each child you have and you love them like they are your first one.

And like that song says, it won't be like this for long. :) That always helps me get my priorities in check when I'm having a rough day!
