Dear Every Overworked Chicago Bad-Ass Mom:
I see you, and I see your struggle. I see the day in and day out grind that takes over your week, every week…And the candle burning at both ends as your work while balancing your home life with little ones.
If you’re anything like me, there’s the constant tug of war between work and home. Caught up at work? I’m sure your home is a mess! Got your house clean? Now there’s a mountain of work piled up. The never ending rat race of juggling working and parenting is hard. Are you a stay at home mom? I know this is just as hard. IT IS WORK too. The laundry, dishes, mess of toys…if it’s not one thing, it’s another.
Of course the next sentence is supposed to be about self-care, right? Take time for yourself. Exercise. Get a massage. Make time for friends. Get 8 hours of sleep. Drink enough water. Every time I read stuff like this, I cringe. Because really, who has time for that with little kids?
Fast forward to this session and I quickly realized how much of a super-mom this momma is. I’ve always wondered how twin moms do it, and this beautiful woman is clearly killing it! She attended to one, then the other, back and forth like it was nothing. Dad was great with them too! We laughed from start to finish, and it was so sweet to see both baby’s personalities come out as the hour passed.
I know us momma’s often feel like we aren’t doing enough. When you take the time to get your family portraits done, at least you can look back and marvel at the beauty that just IS! The every day rate race pauses for a moment, and every time you look at your photos, you will only remember how lucky we are to be busy, how fortunate we are to have these children and how wonderful life was in that moment.
Now, enjoy these twin cuties. 😍
