All The Big Feels


Every now and then I will have what I guess falls under the umbrella excuse of having a mommy moment.  Or maybe it has nothing to do with being a mom.  Maybe it has more to do with the fact that some days I simply feel tired, worn out and a little bit lost about who I am.  Sometimes I have the same big emotions that my kids do, but I do my best to control them and try to teach my kids to do the same.

And sometimes I don’t.  Like that time when I accidentally made a different sandwich than the one my son had asked for, and then I cried about it.  It wasn’t rational; I mean it was a sandwich, right?  I would have expected my son to be the one to cry.  But do you know what he did when I told him my mistake?  He put his hands over the tears on my cheeks and said, “It’s okay mom that you made the wrong sandwich. I still love you, and I’ll still eat it.”  Then he smiled, and my heart melted into a big, messy puddle of tears and wonder.  Some days don’t make any sense at all, and some days make sense in ways that you never would have expected.

  1. I know you didn’t mean it this way, but this is one fantastic trick–to cry before your kids can. I love it and will totally remember it. Woohoo for parental manipulation of children!
    Sorry. I realize I am totally not getting the take-away from this post that you intended.


  2. If life made sense there would be no children. They are messy, unpredictable and selfish. And they are the most wonderful things in the world! They teach us patience, humility and thankfulness. And they will be running things in a few years.


  3. This was so meant for me to read! I had a mommy moment just yesterday when I forgot that it was field day, and I sent my son to school with chicken noodle soup in his lunchbox. He had to eat it outside in the hot sun. Mom win.

    1. Oh no!! I guess the plus side is that he had a lunch to eat, right?! 😉
      Sometimes we really just need to hear that other moms have ‘mommy moments’ too! It really helps to know that we are not alone. 🙂 ❤
