It was a rough morning. No one was listening to me after I asked them to come and sit down for breakfast for the 20th time, plus lots of teasing, crying, and whining while I was preparing it. Kolli asked me what was wrong and I told her I was frustrated because I felt like no one was listening to me. She said to me, "Mom, I know it can be hard taking care of a lot of little kids, cause Mom, there are 1,2,3.... there's 7 of us now and that's a lot of people". (already counting baby girl). 😭 Gosh that girl, how did she know that all I needed in that moment was for someone to notice me and acknowledge that it's hard being a mom sometimes. It's the best job, but it ain't easy.
