One Season of Your Life
Hey Mama, just a reminder, right now you are in ONE season of your life. And like all seasons, it’s going to pass and you will enter another. Maybe the next one will be calmer, more peaceful, less chatter and whining all around you. It might be a little boring, even.
As I type, Baby Z is “talking” at the TOP OF HIS LUNGS. He has discovered his voice, and because we have so many big kids, he gets instant attention practically every time he utters a peep. At this moment, Chloe and Sani are both serenading him (too loudly) with “Silent Night” for entertainment purposes (he drools and grins).
But instantly it spirals into a conflict – “Mom, Chloe’s not singing it right!”
Chloe: (3) “Yes, I am!”
Sani: (5) “No, you’re not! Here’s how you sing it – let me teach you!!”
This probably sounds familiar to some of you, LOL.
My house is loud. It’s messy and loud. And it’s a bit chaotic today. I don’t particularly like the smell coming from the kitchen, either.
My word, Sani has just attempted to sing the whole song, opera-style (too loud and TOO HIGH PITCHED). This house is loud. But love lives here. Wild crazy silly fantastic love lives here. Wrecking ball love.
Embrace the madness today.
Keep walking, Mama. You may not have your ducks in a row, you may look like a cave man with that hair today, but your house is PACKED full of love and liveliness. Your kids love you. Enjoy this season.
