I am now to the point that my sweet little child’s personality is driving me crazy. I crave his independence. Now that he is walking it’s so much easier. But he constantly needs help getting unstuck or getting something unstuck. That in itself frustrates me too. I am by no means a helicopter mother. I constantly encourage him to figure things out or show him the way. I feel the exhaustion creeping in. The same as when he was six months old. I could feel myself losing control of my thoughts. Motherhood is so rewarding but it can be isolating. The weather is bad, the kid is sick or your friends kids are sick. Then I remember that he will never be this little again. He will be my only one. That I am never getting younger. I have to enjoy every day with him, like it’s our last. I need a nap.
