Dirty dishes filled the sink, caked with leftovers from last night’s lasagna. Piles of laundry littered the couch, ready to be folded and put away. The dogs were barking. The TV was blaring the latest episode of PAW Patrol as I struggled in vain to finish an assignment.
“Mommy, I spilled…”
I look over and see my son covered in milk and cereal. Blue and green marks stain his arms and legs from our morning coloring session. Traces of bed head still linger in his hair.
Yup, it’s time for a bath.
Sometimes it’s hard to love being a mom. There’s the constant struggle to balance work with the needs of my little family. Some days it seems my to-do list will never end. Dinner? That’s on me. And just when I think I get ahead, there are little hands reaching for me.
Do you ever feel like you are touched out? Yeah, that’s my life in a nutshell.
I’ve learned how important it is to celebrate your mom wins. When it feels like the deck is stacked against you, look for the one success you can find.
At least he got a bath today.
