Seriously, I have enjoyed a full month with both kids at home but now half way through Summer with the August heat on everyone was getting whiny and I was frazzled and tired all the time.
Than 3 things happened that gave me a boost of so much needed energy....
- the weather went from super hot to cold wind and cloudy and while I do not like the dust that is managing to come inside my home, I welcomed the change with open arms and the feeling that Autumn is near hugged my heart and my senses.
- A friend posted a quote from Mother Theresa stating that the Lord never gives us more than we can handle but I wish he didn't trust me so much and felt like this is so true at this moment in time in my life
- I received confirmation that I am now officially a breastfeeding counsellor
All those helped me focus more and a few minutes ago while the kids were falling down to sleep it occurred to me that while it was being a tad more difficult right now to parent them, I was controlling myself more. I was seeing when I was going to loose it and change the situation in a way that we all end up laughing.
And that quote from earlier made more sense and it brought me much more joy and I felt relieved because finally I was showing and teaching my kids how to go about controlling their feelings :)
