I often hear from friends my life appears to them like “I have it all together!” I don’t mean to give the idea I don’t ever go through tough times, because I absolutely do. EVERY ONE DOES!! In regards to my struggles, I simply have learned to lean on and trust in God with everything; and rely on his grace to get me through my trials. I may not announce my battles with a bugle horn but I definitely share some of my battle scars in my blogs.
In my Mommy Life logs, I like to give my heart some medicine and look back at some of those trying days with some comical relief. I might as well. It sincerely helps having a sense of humor when raising kids. If you haven’t read my Mommy Life: Log Entry 1, you’ll crack up after reading about what I woke up to one morning. I think that image will haunt me for the rest of my life! Now that I have two toddlers, I’m thinking motherhood and humor are synonymous.
So enjoy my Log Entry 2 in my Mommy Life. I hope it will lighten up your day! You’re never alone in your Motherhood journey!

Still nothing can outweigh the constant display I’ve put before my son day after day. Whether I like it or not, I’m defining and creating for him a perception of what a wife is and what he may look for when he’s searching for her.

Motherhood is filled with so many moments. Sometimes those moments are wonderful, sometimes you’re like “Oh-God-help-me.” I know all you mothers can relate. My brother (single, without kids) from time to time will get a sneak peek into my life. I think he often finds my life entertaining but once and awhile I’ll get a question like: “So, when are you going to hire some help?” Needless to say, I am looking forward to seeing him get married and having kids.
Since I enjoy hearing about other mommy stories, I’m going to share some of my own. It’s always nice knowing I’m not alone in the adventurous journey of motherhood. Plus, some of my non-parent readers will have something to look forward to. God bless their hearts!
