Lacking patience, independece, engergy and loving it MOTHERHOOD

As you all know, I am a mother of 2 beautiful girls. They are my everything as life wouldn't be the same without them. They test me daily on different things.

Mostly it's a constant test of patience. The one thing that I fear I will forever have to work on.
They test my wittiness, my strength(physical, mental, spiritual, emotional), my stamina, patience..yes, I already said that but it needs saying again lol, my word, my independence. its a non stop test everyday.
Today was a rough one.

My oldest is 6 going on 16. Its a joke amongst friends but really, its not a joking matter and nothing to laugh at.  Over the span of the last 4 years, she has somehow became delusional and believes that she is an adults equal. She thinks that everything in the house is "hers" and she has some mysterious right to get what she wants etc. Yes, I know this is common amongst kids. But you have to "see" it to understand the degree she takes it.

I love her to end and everyday I pray for a good day. They are there. Just not as often as one would hope. Her sister on the other hand is the complete opposite so far but she is only 21 months old. Lots of time to catch up to her big sis.

I may be out of patience, not so independent as most days I can't go to the bathroom without one of them following, physically and mentally drained and yes..out BUT I WOULDN'T CHANGE IT FOR THE WORLD! Because at the end of the day, the hugs, "I love yous" and snuggles make it all worth it!

  1. You have such beautiful daughters! Obviously you know that, but they are just lovely and adorable. (probably mostly while asleep in some cases).
