Something out of Nothing

I need inspiration, serious inspiration. I have not a creative bone left in my body. Just when I feel like my life is flourishing, I lose all inspiring and funny thoughts. I know, I know...I'm exhausted and my brain is depleting with each passing second. I have an excuse. I need assignments. Like when you're in elementary school and they give you a topic to journal about daily. That's what I need!

Anyway, I just want to give a shout-out (yes, I just said shout-out. Again I have an excuse.) to all of you mothers out there. Motherhood is hard work!! I dropped off my girl at daycare this morning while I start back at work. Granted, I only have four weeks of work left before we move, so I can't complain too much. But talk about a well of emotions. I'm amazed at how much I miss her. Staying home with her was hard, going back to work is hard... So I just have to say, whether you're a stay-at-home mom, a working mom, or somewhere in the middle, I now understand (okay, I only have an inkling) how hard it all is.

Today I'm celebrating moms. All moms. No matter what, I am encouraged by mothers who do their best everyday. And thank you to my mom, for letting me call her in tears after I dropped Chloe off. You're the best. So please join me by telling a friend, family member, coworker, or complete stranger what a good job they're doing.

They should totally create a holiday for this... ;)

It gets easier...I've learned to enjoy my time at work, as much as I can, it's the best feeling in the world when they see you when you go pick them up, like they are seeing you for the first time!

It does get better. . .until the first time you go to pick them up and they say, "I not wanna go!" Then you'll be in tears over that, too! It does get easier, though I could use some help in dealing with pre-teens, but that is another story! You are doing great! Just a few more weeks!

You're doing great, Morg. A newscaster on Fox this morning teared up because today was her first day back at work after having the baby. She was crying on National news. And I cried with her. It will get easier!

I remember thinking the same thing about moms after I had Mason. It was eye opening, and I had a whole new appreciation for anyone I knew that had children. You have no idea what it will be like until it happens, and it definitely is an adventure! I'll be thinking about you in the next few weeks. Tell Jason hi. I know you are both excited for him to be finished!
