And I think I found the answer. These moments....the ones where they're all sitting on the bed making the baby laugh in hysterics. Those are the moments that make you realize that the motherly exhaustion is actually beautiful, meaningful sacrifice....sacrifice that creates moments of real joy....for you and the kids.
And, Emmeline LOVED it. I'm telling you, this little girl loves chaos. Good thing, cause there's always some of that around in our lives right now.
