Mommies sure are busy huh?
Yes baby mommies are very busy.
Poor mommies are so busy they don't even get to sit down for their lunch or watch a movie with their babies huh?
(Insert giant brick hitting me in the head here)
I was speechless. What was I supposed to say? "Yes Kathryne, mommies are too busy to sit for a meal and watch a movie with their children. I bet you cannot wait to be a mommy!"
Or, "Actually baby girl a lot of mommies watch movies with their kids, just not yours."
I said nothing. I just smiled at her and silently asked the Lord for a few more minutes in each day. Oh and by the way could I get the last five months back that I missed with my first two babies? Or maybe just the Thanksgiving and Christmas that I was barely physically present for? And how about an hour or so with my husband? And then I heard Josie cry and went back into being the mommy that stands to eat grateful, blown away by mercy, thankful, tired, blessed.
So now we have three out of four of our babies at home. It is not without challenges due to Josie's needs right now. But I can see the future through His eyes as He shows me glimpses of what is to come and it is wonderful. We are exhausted. We are emotionally spent. We have not stopped since October. Not for a moment. But we are grateful We are blown away by what He has done for us. We are blessed beyond measure. And one day, we will pack all of our girls up and head to the zoo to see the monkeys and have a picnic. And mommy will SIT right by her sweet Kathryne and eat. Until then we will celebrate the life of the greatest miracle we have ever seen every minute of every day.
Thank you for your prayers, for reading, for loving us.
