...are just easier than others. One of my best friends told me (after her first child) that some days the only thing she got done was taking care of her baby. I took that advice to heart and tried to remember that it is okay if the checks do not appear on my things to do list every day. Tuesday was one of those days. Camille had a rough night on Monday, and she needed held most of the day on Tuesday. Adeline was a bit clingy too, and I just couldn't get anything done.
Then, God blessed me with Wednesday. By 9 am I WAS SHOWERED and dressed, I bathed Camille, and both girls were in their daytime clothes. Everyone was fed, the bed was made, and I folded and put away a load of laundry. I KNOW!!! As if that wasn't enough, Camille took a three hour nap in her swing, allowing me to clean up the kitchen and spend some quality time with Adeline (who ate lunch and went down for a nap without incident). Then, I nursed Camille and took a little nap with her. I felt so good, Adeline and I even made cupcakes later that afternoon. It felt so good to have an organized and clean home for Patrick when he came home...not that he complains otherwise, but it was just nice. Thank you, Lord, for days like Wednesday to make me feel like super mom, and thank you for Tuesdays that remind me whose I am and where my strength lies.
