I don't know about you, but I wish I could win
the lottery so that money would not be an issue for us. Then all my time could
be dedicated to just serving God and my family. I would love being home 5 days
a week with my kids instead of just two. But we do what we have to do. (I do
have a point.)
Anyway, if you're like me, and you wish you could stay
home with your kids, and you feel bad about the fact that you can't, well my
story will probably make feel worse.
I'm standing in the living room with 3 of my six boys, and the 7 yr. old and the
almost six year old are playing with a ball and Makennan (7) says. "I wish I
had two moms." "What?" I respond very confused about why he would want two
moms. He goes on to say, "one to work, and one to spend time with us."
My heart sank. Then Malachi (almost 6) joins in. "but I want you to be
the mom that spends time with us."
How do you respond to that? I
certainly don't know, all I said was, "awh, guys." I wanted to say "thanks for
making me feel like crap guys," but I kept that to myself.
sure to spend some extra quality time with them, so that they'll be okay with
just one mom, me.
I am a wife, mother of seven and a lawyer. The life I live is a crazy one, but I love it and wouldn't trade it for the world. I hope what I share can be an inspiration to others, but I will settle for it just giving someone a good laugh!
