I've been thinking a lot about being a mom lately. What an incredible privilege.
But, what an overwhelming responsibility at the same time. In one of my very first posts on this blog I wrote about some of my feelings of being a parent:
What is it about being a parent?
Your capacity for grief and pain expands at the same rate as your capacity for joy.
It is agony.
It is bliss.
I am VERY blessed and grateful to have the opportunity to be a stay at home mom and I wouldn't trade my life for anyone else's. However, being the main caregiver for your children can be (as stated above) overwhelming at times. When 2 year old tantrums meet with a teething 10 month old...whew, watch out =) I have been reflecting on ways or tools that I have learned in my journey as a parent that have helped me to ENJOY my children during EVERY stage.
Now it wouldn't be any fun to throw them all out at once =)
So, I'll be sharing a few at at time this week.
