Life Happens…

These days I  feel as though I can’t catch a break anywhere. There is not enough time in a day to get it all done. I feel exhausted, running on ‘zero’ sleep, I feel like ever day for me is a catch up day. My vision is to have a clean house all the time, and just be able to sit down and relax every once in a while, but it’s the total opposite. Cleaning and chorus is honestly a never-ending story there is always something to be washed or cleaned. My mom has this saying in spanish ” que la casa, se caiga pero tu descansa” translation “let the house be, and get some rest”. I find that very hard to do, because I do not like seeing the house dirty. Whenever bam bam or Edward are asleep and I have “free time”, I find myself  trying to catch up with the house, but I never just sit. So a few days ago, I was listening to a christian song and realized that I need to calm down, relax and enjoy things at the moment. In life we have seasons, my season right now is caring for my little munchkins {we will of course do this for the rest of our lives. What I mean by this is, having to nurse Edward, cuddling with them, making breakfast – you know! all the mommy things} In due time my life will change, the kids will make their own food, the house will finally stay clean, and I’ll finally have some ‘ME’ time. In the mean time I need to enjoy the beautiful moments with my munchkins, life happens to quickly and  I will not be able to re-live them again.

So, if you find yourself feeling this way. I have a few words for you. Take it easy, relax, housework is a never-ending story {it’s totally overrated 🙂  haha} and enjoy living in the moment. 

YOLO !!!

  1. Hmm… I have a phrase that I prefer to YOLO. I’m more of a “carpe diem” kinda gal. But, really, there are days when you just have to say forget it and enjoy the littles.

  2. it’s rough especially with all the ‘fake’ pressure put on by ourselves and our pinterest-y lives…

  3. Love it, Polly. I have been feeling like this and totally needed a reminder to live in the now and quit sweating the small things!

  4. Every day is definitely a catch up day over here. I am fairly certain the only way to make it look like you have everything perfect is to neglect something else. Unfortunately it usually has to be yourself as a mom. For house work I try to just go with a ‘good enough’ goal instead of great. Great can come after our babies are grown.

I love me some comments, speak your mind.
