life is good.

with ian gone the last few days, i have realized how truly blessed i am. having to do everything by myself (and with a big belly getting in the way) i’ve thought about all the things we do to keep our families going. making every meal, changing every diaper, putting her down for every nap and bedtime, getting her dressed every time, playing every game, giving her every bath… not to mention taking out the trash, laundry, dishes, grocery shopping, feeding the cat, and cleaning the house!!! and with emma’s bronchitis this week… doing every breathing treatment, giving her medicines, checking on her in the middle of the night to make sure she’s ok…

most days, at the end of the day after she is in bed i think, “wow, this is the first time i sit down today… where did the day go?” i realize that all of the things i did that day were for her (or ian,) with a few quick breaks for myself to eat or go to the bathroom… there is no doubt that moms have to be selfless. for this season of life, i feel like i put myself aside and take care of my family.

how tough life must be for single parents!!! the single mom of several kids who has to do EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME. no breaks ever! this has been eye-opening for me, and i don’t even have another job on top of being a mom!!! i truly appreciate a husband who helps as much as ian does. so, i’ve concluded that life is good. life is great, actually. however, i am ready for ian to be home. and he will be on DOUBLE DUTY for quite a while!!! 😉
