the days

Lately we've all been on edge...just a little. I am kinda sort of at the end of my nursing days- too many years of nursing babies. I am desperate to be done, and so I am exhausted and a bit wired from lack of sleep, and just getting better from my chest infection, and a changing diet.

There are a lot of other changes- of course they happen all at once...
We have teething and teething- did I mention teething? We have little ones cutting molars, ouch! We have little feet that have been discovered and strengthened- and they move faster than you and I, or the little ones, (for that matter) think possible...pretty cute sometimes :)
We've even had a few more bumps and bruises- in some of the little ones who are the most confident on their feet.

There are moments of over-stimulation - a work in progress for me as I figure out these little changing humans, AND, there are the moments of frustration when dealing with my birth kiddies, because I know that they know what is acceptable and what is not. On the not-so great days, I am anxious to get outside, get some much needed vitamin D and just watch the little ones go - thankfully, we have had some really warm days.

I have seen some things like not wanting to share toys, or outbursts and tantrums where there were none before. Our days are up and down, and I am sort of praying to get back to our "normal". I keep going back to what I envision for the kids and I have to walk myself through it most evenings. It will take some time for everyone to adjust.

So it is my job to help them cope and deal with frustration and anger. I have to listen just a little bit harder. I must look and examine...listen for the hunger cry...the wet cry...the  tired...annoyed cry. I have to keep taking a breath and reminding myself that whatever it is- it is real, and in those moments, they need something from me.

On my end, I have learnt some new things about myself, my abilities, my needs. I now look at my business from a different perspective, knowing what I want, and what I do not want to do; looking at ways to change things (that I can), and communicate certain issues and frustrations when they come up. 
It is what it is, and as the seasons change, I am understanding just a little more about trying to find balance, AND, holding on to the good stuff as much as I can.

Nice to read how it goes and how you see the future. You made a big step in setting up your business. Things are moving, you are learning and improvment is the next step.
I have a hard time dealing with tantrums and cries. I am learning too, trying to find the right balance every single day.
Keep enjoying the simple things of every day.
