Dear Overwhelmed Mother

January 12, 2017

I am so excited to share my lated post with you from Today I am Enough.  If you haven’t heard, Today I am Enough is a new website I’ve created to help YOU realize how amazing you really are.

Dear friend (aka overwhelmed mother),

You know what that moment is like. The one where the day seems to be crashing down around you.  Dinner isn’t even started, the breakfast dishes are still everywhere. The floor is sticky, the kids are running around in pajamas, and you feel like you don’t have control of anything. Someone is screaming for you or at you, or possibly both. Sometimes motherhood just becomes overwhelming.

I’ve had that moment what feels like a million times over. Motherhood has been something that has not come as naturally as I anticipated when I was a older teenager/young adult. The patience I once felt like I had seems to have disappeared. Having six kids in the span of seven years has been a great way to see how patient I actually am, or rather the LACK of patience I actually have. For so many years I had a baby, a toddler and a preschooler. The days were oh so long. Everyone told me I’d miss it someday (I’m still waiting to miss it and my baby is in school now).
