I love being a mom.
Every single part of it.
It is the hardest thing that I have ever done.
Many days I feel like I am a huge failure.
But I would not trade it for anything in the world.

I am taking a little break from old skool week because I felt like this post needed to be written. My humor is a bit on the scarcastic side and when my sister in law emailed me the 10 step program from yesterday's post I couldn't stop laughing. We both have three kids of identical ages and go through many of crazy things at the same time. I wish that I wrote it, but someone much funnier than I did. I would love to know who it was.
Anyway, if you don't have kids please don't let the silly illustrations scare you.
Yes. Life as you know it will be over.
But your new life will be so much richer and fuller than you ever imagined.
There will be days where you cry.
Tears of frustration.
Your heart will break.
But then there will be many days when you cry different tears.
Tears of joy.
Every single part of it will be worth it.
You might think back on your old life and miss it.
But then you will see their little faces.
The love they have for you.
You won't want to trade it for anything in the world either.
Then you can come back here, read it again with a whole new set of eyes. Eyes that see the reality in the silliness and not the fear.
