I'm not sure what the true definition of prime of life is....isn't like the best time, the highlight of your life? Anyway, I had a thought this week that I am probably in the prime of my life. Doing my most important and fun work i'll ever do. Maybe I feel that way because I can't picture life after kids. But I had a really good week. I felt like I was being a pretty awesome homemaker (seriously, I made jsm, pie and bread fantastically all in one day)and a being a pretty good mom. But then yesterday about noon everything started to go down hill. Little Miss's attitude took a turn for the worst, my second attempt at bread was a fail, my plans for the day all fell apart. blame it on the pregnancy hormones, i started to lose it. I put myself in time out. After the kids were in bed, I went grocery shopping instead of out on a date with the hubby due to unexpected work stuff, bought a few fun items for me, spent $200 on maternity clothes online (most will go back i'm sure), had a Ben and jerry's and my mood improved.
This morning, everything went back to how it was before bed time. Somehow, I got the kids pulled together to go to garage sales. I stopped to get gas and the song "you're gonna miss this" came on over the speakers.
just what I needed to hear, even though it's still hard. Just need to push through and enjoy the shinning, happy moments.
