But the most important job!
Can I get an Amen? 🙌
I have so much to say and also nothing to say.
Constantly humbled by the love, beauty, terror, stress and exhaustion from being a parent. 🙋♀️
People are right when they say you don’t know until you have kids, but I am pretty sure all the parents out there in whatever season of life you are in just need a reminder that is this the hardest job, because it is the most important job.
I am constantly shocked at how little planning goes into being a parent, no formal training and each child is very different, perfect storm for most parents.
We struggle as a family on finding the right rhythms during each season of our life. Right now we have a 6 year old and a 3 year old, our house is full of questions and meltdowns may occur at any moment. Add two full time working parents and the stress, patience and energy are magnified or depleted. I don’t want to change or fix what we have but I do want to validate this this is a challenging season of our life.
We prayed for this and are grateful!
But it is the hardest and the most important job we have ever done, that is a lot of pressure. Pressure we put on ourselves, pressure society puts on us and pressure we don’t know where it comes from.
This post is for all the parents, me included. A reminder that this is tough, it is beautiful, it is crazy, it is stressful and all the things, but you can do this! We all can!
Build each other up, support each other and know we are building a strong, intelligent, kind and amazing people!!
You have this!!
