To All My Mom and Dad Bloggers out there!

Does life seem like one big frenzy? There is no job out there harder nor more rewarding then being a parent! Sometimes, i wonder if will ever get things done. I tell myself take a breath and calm myself reminding me that it will all work out. But it is one thing to say it, another to convince myself. All you bloggers out there that are full time parents will relate and understand. And that goes for you FULL time step parents too! Kudos to you who step into the role of a full time parent. Kudos to you again, who love, support, run, lose sleep over, protect, share wisdom, discipline and guide those that are not biologically yours, roles and shoes you fill willingly without reservation, for that makes you a parent. I call it parent by choice!

So to ALL my parents, do you ever feel like you will never be able to take five? Because when you think for that remote second you actually may, you remember: The laundry, The grocery list,The dentist, The doctor, The vet, Homework, Bills you have to pay, Sports, Work (let us not forget our paying jobs) Dinner, Cleaning the house, All the cuts, bruises, scratches, colds, flus, Broken bones, broken hearts, and my favorites, MOM I NEED, MOM I WANT, MOM RIDE HERE, THERE EVERYWHERE! And you dads out there that seconds you as well. Meanwhile, you get that lump in your throat and in the pit of your stomach and forget how to focus. Your head is spinning and your tripping over your own feet. You think to yourself am i human? Because when we are overwhelmed, we are on autopilot!

However, when i feel this surge of panic, i step back briefly and think to myself. Someday, this will just be a memory of my best years. Someday, i will have a empty nest. Now, i do not want to think about that yet, for now i keep the running shoes on praying i can complete each need and want that my kids have with in reason. And someday all of us mommies and daddies, will look back and see these lives we raised turn into successful, loving, adults….AND THEN… DRUM ROLL PLEASE 🙂

We can laugh when THEY SAY, MOM, DAD, HELP! I am overwhelmed, how did you do it all?? MY KIDS, need, want, are sick, what do i do?? Just smile and say and YOU WILL SAY, and i quote….YOU WILL GET THOUGH IT!! 🙂 Then be prepared…Then comes the grand Babies and it starts all over….just in a different, best way possible 😉 xo
