some days are hard.


there are days where it's hard being a mom. 

don't get me wrong, for the most part I LOVE IT

and could never imagine my life without little lon's. 

but there are days that are just trying. 
i'm tired, she's fussy, and the list can go on.

i remember...

before i had babies, i thought, 

having babies will be great. i'll go and sit at a coffee shop and read with them and just hang out all day. 

ha ha. boy was i wrong. 

being a mom is one of the hardest, best jobs out there. 
it's funny how it can be both one of the hardest struggles and greatest joys. 

so, here's to mom-hood and honesty and to knowing it's not always roses,
to playdates and naptimes and going for walks with a stroller. 

my life will never be the same because of little lon's and i'm humbled, thankful and sometimes intimidated of that idea. 

cheers! 

my sweet little pumpkin noodle.

i totally agree with this entire post.

i am NOT ashamed to say that mothering is hard & not 100% what i imagined. i know that having amelia is exactly what God created me for, but there are some days {like when i need to sew ALOT} that i think back to how it was before i was chasing around this little diva! and then i realize she is a far bigger blessing than any amount of etsy orders ;)
