We’re now into the middle of August and I can feel the remaining days of summertime slipping by.
I love summer.
I love that I have the option to work from home and bounce around between the city and our family lake property for the summer months.
I love that I get to spend so much time with my kids.
I do love it, honestly I do.
But….there are days when mama needs a break.
The three of us have been together almost every day for almost two months now. We’ve spent an unreasonable amount of time in the car together (which is enough to bring any mom to her knees). And for the most part it’s been awesome. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. In fact, I’ve written about some of the amazing moments we’ve had together.
And there is a but. There are moments where I find myself longing for September. For the hours of uninterrupted work time, writing time and mommy time. Whenever I have these moments I have to remind myself not to wish away the hot days, the lazy days at the lake, the hikes we’ve discovered and the good times we have together. Even when I’m ready to snap.
Those are the moments I take a breath, try to laugh and when all else fails…grab a glass of red.
Here’s one of my favorite YouTube videos honoring mom’s. It doesn’t matter how many times I watch it. In never fails to make me laugh.
So..when you have one of those ‘mommy moments’ just click play, sit back and enjoy.
