Elizabeth and I read a bunch of books tonight. Into the 4th one I started falling asleep between pages...sometimes sentences. I am really tired.
As she went to get a final book from the shelf. I mentioned how tired I was feeling.
She said, "That's because you're a really great mommy."
Of course I was very touched, but also curious, so I asked something like, "What do you mean?"
She matter-of-factly replied, "Well, if you're a really great mommy, you're always really tired."
In that moment I felt so utterly loved and like all of the exhaustion is really worth it!
To all you tired moms out there, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!
