Mom of 4

I know it is different for everyone, but being a mom of 4 has been more difficult than I thought it would be. 3...no problem. 4...I can't even count how many times I have cried because of how miserably I seem to fail every day. Don't get me wrong. I wouldn't change a thing. And we are happy and enjoying life wildly. But the day to day "toughness" can only lead me to one place. A place where there is grace and I know what I'm doing is a sacred calling. I know God will give me the power to overcome the laundry. He will give me the inspiration to come up with creative meals that most of us will eat. He will give me the strength to go grocery shopping after a long difficult day. He will help me homeschool these young ones and give me "breaks" when I need them. He will miraculously stretch our money further. I know these things to be true. One thing I find amazing is that even when I feel completely fried....like I'm done and I can't do it another day, I will go to bed and although nothing is different in the morning....I am different. I feel refreshed, like I can do it again and I'm happy to. Good thing!
I love being Mama to these 4 kids of mine. I am overwhelmed with blessings that I don't deserve.


The first one. The one who made me a mom. (I have faith that he will have teeth again some day)

Miraculously in one place at one time!

This is more what it's really like

Mom of 4. The best job in the world.

Kaylee, I just think you are so beautiful! And I know you are overwhelmed at times, but I wish I could be more like the mom you are, to my own kids. Love you!

Kaylee, you are such a great role model ... Can I be like you "when I grow up?" I have a lot of admiration for you!

You are gorgeous, and awesome, and so full of grace. And in your moments of feeling overwhelmed you are so not alone. ...says the gal who finally has a moment to comment because she's currently (trying) to hide in her own room while silent tears of "all that" well up... see. not alone. ~kp
