Today has been one of those days.

You know, the kind when you feel like crying, or yelling, or throwing stuff...

What??? You don't have days like that???

Today I feel a bit overwhelmed.
The sleepless nights are catching up with me.
My sick 5 week old is worrying me.
I'm having a hard time giving all four kids everything they need from me.
Ok, I'm having a hard time even giving them some of what they need from me.
I worry how the older kids are feeling.
How are they dealing with the change?
I feel insecure and unsure with my overly emotional daughters.
Especially being overly emotional myself....
I desperately want to be exercising, but can't figure out how to fit it in.
I haven't left the house in two days. Literally.
I feel like all I do is complain - and I don't like that.

And on top of that I'm having facebook withdrawals.

I know. Poor me. My life is so hard....

Actually, it's pretty great - I'm just having one of those days.
And I never have been that great at dealing with change.

And make myself feel a little bit better and to remember to smile today...


our beautiful boy.

How can I not be happy, and so very grateful???
I think I can.
And I think I am.

Ok, I feel better. may also like:

You are allowed to have those kind of days as often as needed :) Sending positive thoughts your way.....and to be honest, I am glad that I am not the only one feeling overwhelmed.

Oh Megan! I probably have one of those days every week....and I only have two kids, and no newborn...I think you are amazing! and by the way, your little guy is ADORABLE :) Hang in there! you are a wonderful mother, and I'm sure your girls are going to be just fine!

:-( I think you are super tired. That's usually why I have days like that. Sorry I can't offer any help or advice, I still have days like that and my baby is almost 18 years old. ;-)

We all have those feelings. We have been sick here, and I havent been able to come over. I think that baby's face is SO WONDERFUL! You are a great Mother... adjusting takes time. If you want to talk, I am here. I will come still those girls soon... (Literally soon, we just have the flu... boo.) ps, I agree with FB. Stupid fb.

Megan, I love and adore you and have felt all those feelings too. I think it's a given with hormones and prolonged sleep deprivation! Having #4 has been so much more tricky to adjust to for me than #3 was. I'm so glad you have a husband who knows exactly what you need and you got to go to the gym!
