I have become an oxymoron

I first posted this on my Facebook and it seems to have resonated with a lot of people, so I’m posting it here on my blog too!

I want to work, but I want to stay home with my kids.

I want to pursue my dreams, but they are also my dreams.

I want my own life, but they are also my life.

I need time away, but I miss them.

I want someone else to take care of them because I’m exhausted, but I worry all the time and only trust myself to take care of them.

I want them to grow faster so that we can be out of this madness sooner. But I also wish that they would not grow up so fast because this is a precious moment.

I complain about how crazy they make me. But I also go on and on about how adorable they are and how proud I am of them.

I want to scream at them. But I also want to hug and kiss them.

I thank God every day that I have them. But sometimes I wonder what have I gotten myself into.

I feel two is more than I am able to handle. Yet sometimes I kinda want more.

Yep. I have become an oxymoron. And if you relate to the above, you are most likely a mom too.

Happy Mother’s Day!

 

Love,

Natalie
