Hi there! My sincere apologies for this delayed blog. My middle sister, 8 year old niece, newly 3 year old nephew, and niece-dog visited and we were non-stop! My heart is warm but the rest of me is a bit exhausted and in just total awe as to how you moms do it. Seriously, how do you? Do you just get used to it – going, going, going?
I give my sister a ton of credit. I was exhausted just watching her kids and dog go to her for everything – and luckily these are good kids – but still everything. The three year old is very much in Mommy, Mommy mode. Only mommy can open my drink. Only mommy can help me. Only mommy. Only mommy. You moms are going to need to clone yourselves.
I got lucky in an odd way with my cancer that I never wanted to have kids.
So many women, including friends, have wanted kids, tried to get pregnant or gotten pregnant and boom – the hormone rush activated cancer in their bodies and they ended up fighting for their lives, often with no baby. It’s just heartbreaking. And I cannot forget all of those women who have kids and families and responsibilities who get cancer but yet are still Mommy Mommy’d by everyone. I truly don’t know how you do it. My hat is off to all of you!
My Mom Rocks
I also need to give a shout out to my mommy. She was a real trooper. She’s 78 and was right there, trudging through the insane heat at Epcot Center and Crayola and parks and restaurants, not to mention hosting everyone. You’re awesome, mama.
Thank you all for the week off. I hope everyone was well and healthy and happy. 🙂
