Mom woes…

Tonight as I paced the bathroom floor at church switching between rocking my one-year-old and allowing her to wander around I felt a very strong “I’ve had enough of this” feeling come over me…

Motherhood is demanding and comes with very expected, unexpected things…

My daughter is one now so she’s considered a toddler. She’s definitely in the stage where sitting still is not her forte.

I mean you may get her to sit for a moment… but her in all of her “Big Girl” glory is hard to contain in settings where you should probably sit still…

which is to be expected.

But

To be honest… it’s frustrating.., especially during church… I mean it’s the one thing I do, do during the week and I don’t even get to fully get the word because I find myself in the bathroom…Again…

That’s right tonight wasn’t the first time I’ve found myself somewhere outside of the sanctuary trying…  bouncing… swaying… praying my one-year-old would close her beautiful brown eyes and sleep…

aand if there’s anything I’m certain of it won’t be the last.

The only solution I had was to leave…

she was getting restless and didn’t want to be contained…

Seee people had me fooled… convinced me that once i stopped breastfeeding i’d get my life back… lol welp here we are.. almost a week and a half… breast free and that thing that I once consider my life is harder to find..

All you mommies out there pray me through this phase. Mommy frustration gets real…

Now let me go pray.
