Pardon me while I deviate from my usual talk about running and all things fitness and such. I had every intention today to talk about some new workouts I have wanted to try out and a new challenge that I am going to start (stay tuned for that), but every time I try to talk about something else my mind becomes flooded with what is really weighing on me....my precious Em.
Being a mom has taught me that one single thing can bring an outpouring of love and blessing on your life and still be the most challenging thing you have ever done! With marathon training or working out work+effort=goal. With parenting right now for me work+effort=more work+more effort! Please know that I wouldn't trade her for anything and am so thankful for her.....but can I get an amen from moms with toddlers??? Seriously ladies we need a support group!!! What worked last during vacation for potty training and eating has been thrown out the window now that I have gone back to work. Oh my word!!!
I don't mean to whine and I am aware that not all of you have children. I guess the thing that is most weighing on me is that I want to do what's best for her but well she unfortunately didn't come with a owners manual! Surely there are other moms out there that are struggling with their kids....or have struggled and now have amazing teenagers.....or that can talk me off the ledge! This will get easier right?
