Treading Water

I've been back to work for 3 weeks, really almost 4 at this point, and I feel like I'm barely treading water.  This mothering of two wee ones and a teenager ain't no joke.  And if we're really being honest, which I am, I feel like I'm barely making it work.  I'm up between 345 and 430, Monday thru Friday and lucky to be in bed by 930, assuming little miss is cooperating.  From the time I wake up until the time I lay down it's pretty much go, go, go and someone's always needing something..ALWAYS! I barely have time to use the bathroom let alone take a breath.

Oh so now let's add into this madness the fact that I may or may not be losing 4 days a month from my paycheck, thanks for that Congress, and the stress factor up in here is just about to boil over.  Which is why when I woke up with a migraine on Tuesday I wasn't all that suprised, I actually had been expecting it.  So now I do what I do best, adjust and get on with it.  I'm not sure what I thought mothering two wee ones was going to be like, easy not so much but maybe not quite so overwhelming but hey with barely a minute to breathe I don't have much time to wallow in it.

On the days when it becomes to much I'm going to remember something I just read from one of my favorite blogs, Enjoying the Small Things. The Momma, Kelle Hampton, was talking about her tranistion from two to three kids, she just had the cutest little boy to add to her beautiful family, and she said "Life does not lend itself to smooth transitions."  It's like God knew I need something to remind me that we do the best we can and that's what I'm doing, even if some days I don't feel like it. 

And just to keep it all in prespective these two just need me to love them.  Everything else will fall into place, won't it?

I love them.
