No Mojo


This little girl has got me stumped. It was a hard day...or two. I feel like I have lost my mommy mojo. I am just out of touch with her needs....at least today. Does she have a cold? Is she teething? What are those tears and cries trying to tell me? As much as I try and fight it, today it seems as though my happiness is connected to the quality and quantity of my kids naps. I love you little Baylie girl. As hard as it was today, I'm sad that it feels like the last few months of babiness is almost gone before she is a toddler. Sorry for venting my motherhoodness today. I try to pretend that there is a whole lot more to me than my kids, but thats not really true. Cause I am a mom.

When Luke told me he would rather not eat the leftover shepard's pie that I was reheating, he asked if he could have a sandwich. To which I replied, "If you want to make it, you can have it." And then he asked me, "Can I have a whole one?" And I said, "Of course." He decided on peanut butter and honey. I told him I would give him help if he needed it. He asked me to get the bread and he did the rest. And I caught him crouched on the counter like this. I think he was washing the knife?

WHat a funny picture of him on the counter. Nice though when they make their own food. In my last picture you can see pam to the left of avery. thought you might like that.
It's nice to know all mom's have hard days, you see alot of bloggers who act like it's never hard. Too bad we have to be mind readers sometimes. Good luck.

Don't worry, we all have our mommy breakdown moments and we're all really defined by our children.

Dang, that is awesome Luke is so independent. I feel the same way about Brenna's naps.
