Absolutely every single day I think, "What have I gotten myself into?...Four kids!?...Why did I think I could take care of FOUR human beings? I can't do this. I shouldn't be doing this!"
Absolutely every single day I think, "This is the awesomest thing in the world. I want four more."
Contradiction seems to be motherhood in a nutshell. At least in my corner of the world.
It's the most unnatural-natural thing I've ever done.
It's the most joyful-depressing thing I've ever experienced.
I was never so at peace and apoplectic.
Yessir, one big contradiction:)
I may be at my wit's end more often than I would wish, but I wouldn't trade the wonder it is to intimately experience the spiritual, intellectual, and physical growth of four amazing souls for anything. Not for anything at all.
It's a privilege, an honor, and a joy to be Mommy to each of these four boys.
