Why is it time slips away when you want more of it and stands still when you just want to get through the day?
It’s like after a long day with babies, waiting for the clock to strike 4:00 pm, the big hand passes those minute marks in sloooow motion. I’m glaring at it waiting for daddy to step through the door and take over so I can breathe. When Dax is asleep, I pray that time slows down so I can finally eat or work.
Moms just don’t have enough time for everything needing to be done in one day. Laundry in baskets spill over into the next morning. Scattered toys stay put and showers get squeezed in between or not at all. Sometimes time is wasted watching mindless TV but what mom doesn’t need a break while munching on potato chips.
But it gets done. Tears of frustration are dried. We put on a happy face if not for our little kids who need smiles and hugs but for us.
The day these photos were taken, I actually had some time to get dressed and put together a cute little outfit. This wonderfully soft top is from Sweet Mommy that makes maternity and nursing apparel. This top is so stylish and can be used for both. The layers make it perfect for nursing.
Here’s to a week where we get things done or not! Time will pass and the little things won’t matter when we look back. So don’t feel guilty for the messes, the mindless TV but enjoy those precious moments with your babies.
