Don't Forget - You are Amazing!
I love this little girl! :-) I had this long, elaborate post written out to encourage all you mamas out there, but I just don't have the energy to finish it right now...bummer. It appears that I have Mastitis again and oh my golly this is as unpleasant as the first time around. Don't you ever wish you could clone yourself just for the days that you are super tired, sick, burnt out or just needing someone to go to the doctor for you because you are too beat to go yourself. It's days like these that I really admire you mamas that have more than one child because at least when my munchkin naps after I get off work, I can nap too (for 30 minutes). It's also days like these that I realize how amazing and resilient moms are! We don't get the down time we need to recover from things but, somehow we keep chugging and we push through even the toughest of days! I think every mom should wear a hot pink cape and a hot pink mask with a suit that says, "SUPER MOM." hahaha. During one of my college classes a few years back I learned that the minimum salary for a stay at home mom (if she were to be paid for her labors of love) would equate to over $150K a year...minimum!! So, just be encouraged that even though you might not be bringing in literal money, your investment and diligent efforts to take care of your husband and children are extremely valuable, priceless in my opinion!!! Mom's, you are AMAZING!
