.Practice Makes Perfect.

Sometimes, it's good for the family to all get down on the same level, and just spend time together playing and practicing.  Sometimes, all you want to be is a stay at home mama.  Life is funny because before baby, this was the last thing you could picture yourself doing.  Sometimes, when you're feeling under the weather and stressed, your husband will fix you a chocolate concoction that silents all worries for a time.  Sometimes, you want to go hibernate away from emails and phones.  Sometimes, you want to call out sick and stay in bed although you have dozens of tasks awaiting your attention. Sometimes, you think things are an utter waste of time.  Sometimes, at the end of the day you have no energy to complete the simplest house task although you know you'll regret it later.  Sometimes, feeling undervalued changes your attitude about things. 

And then, you play together on the floor, or catch up with an old friend, or get an encouraging email, or a supportive pep talk, or read the right scripture to capture the moment and celebrate over small victories and remember that this is everything you wanted and that practice makes perfect and hard work pays off and all those other cliches that are supposed to make you feel inspired when you're running on fumes.

Then you wake up, and do it all over again.  And today, you're wearing your boyfriend blazer and favorite earrings because even if you don't feel like it, you know you'll be proud of yourself for doing it all any way.

What a great post, and so spot on! I feel this way all the time..and then my husband and I go for a walk, and the world slows down a bit. I can only imagine having a little one does that for you even more!
