Two Kids is Hard

Two kids is hard.
Relentless. 
Tiring. 
Feeling pulled in two different directions. 
Wanting – no needing – space, but not getting it. 
Messy. 
Chaotic. 
Overwhelming. 
 
Two kids is hard. 
Parenting is hard. 
Motherhood is hard. 
 
Some days it flows. 
Others it’s a storm. 
 
No matter how hard it is, there’s one constant. 
Love. 
So much love. 
The hardest thing I may ever do, but the purest and most fulfilling. 
 
Finding it hard sometimes means nothing but I’m human. 
Normal. 
I find it hard because IT IS. 
 
Don’t let highlight reels trick you into believing it shouldn’t be. 
Or that you’re not a good enough mother. 
 
Every day, every night, I show up for my kids. 
I’ll take the hard parts to experience the joy. 
I am meant to be their mum. 
This. Is. Motherhood.
