This morning all seemed to go as clear and graceful as the day that was brought upon us. Girls cooperated with their morning routines and were even ready 15 mins early. “YES!!!! I will be making it to work early today”.
Enter drop off moment. We walk in, say our good mornings, wash hands, put all articles away in the cubbies. They sit down and I serve them breakfast. Glance at my watch and wow I’m truly on point this morning. Hugs and kisses to one and hugs and kisses to the next, but wait!!!!! She won’t let go of my sweater. OK mommy loves you both and daddy will pick you guys up today.
And the water works begin. Lower myself to her level and reassure her mommy loves and you’re going to have a wonderful day today. No NO No NO! Please stay, or can I please go to work with you. Now this went on for 25 minutes and there was no reasoning with her as there is no reasoning with any 4-year-old. Negotiations, options, hugs, kisses and speaking; were all failed attempts on my behalf, but her guilt trip on me was definitely winning. “Mommy you’re breaking my heart, because you’re not understanding me”. How do I compete with that? How do I bounce back and try to even win this one? Continue reading
As moms, we wear many hats, and costumes. Yet the most important role, I feel, I have is being blessed with the opportunity of parenthood. All the other undertaking that is present in my life has been put there by me and me alone. I have chosen to pursue further education, while my daughters are still very young, and let’s just say it has not been easy on anyone from my husband to my-self.
Now with that said here comes the magic part I’ve yet to master. Time…. Time has to be the biggest enemy against accomplishing any dream in life. There is never enough of it, even when you believe; you have found a way to manage it. How can one get through 5 quizzes, 2 forums, 16 chapters, plus work, and play the most amazing role mom and family Time!!!
What an evil theory!!!!
The only step, I have been able to understand, but not master is mommy-hood. If, I want to succeed in my career, then I need to continue nurturing the little ones at home, because that is what will matter most in the end. Everything else, I will just play with the scale for as long as I can, without giving up.
I may not catch up to Time, but I will figure out, how to wind- it- up, at my pace!
Girls art project balanced on Time!
Being what was once considered a typical Scorpio; pre-twins days was a title I carried with pride. Now being called mami is one I wear with honor. Yet how do I go back and find some of that Scorpio sting that’s inside me, yet is not sure how to balance the once title and the new?
I am using this blog as a way to try to mesh the old with the new in order to keep what was once a fun, spontaneous person/fiancee to just being a mami!
My goals are to free write what is on my mind for 30 min. This will hopefully start giving me insight to what is inside my mind and what is presently going on at once.
If anyone wants to comment please feel free. I would love to hear from other moms/dads that may or may not be facing similar adjustments.
On a side note a milestone was reached in our home this morning. Day 5 of twins going pee pee in the potty. What a great accomplishment on their behalf and light starting to peek through the tunnel; symbolizing purchasing diapers will soon come to an end.
