I think it’s hard to see it when you’re in the trenches, which I definately have been this week. I feel like I’m constantly saying no, telling someone to be quiet or pulling someone from climbing on the couches. It feels like I’m a mechanical robot just doing what needs to get done.
When in reality I am the sun that the family revolves around. Sure, it seems like I revolve around them, but honestly — if I’m gone. Things don’t rotate, they grind, slowly… but it’s not the same.
I’m lucky to have a great mom and while I hate to sound a little prideful, so are my kids. I need to remember how important my job is.
Wait, no… P get down.
NO. NO NO sissy….
