 “In the summer, the days were long, stretching into each other. Out of school, everything was on pause and yet happening at the same time, this collection of weeks when anything was possible.”

―Sarah Dessen, Along for the Ride

Whoever told us that summer is slow and easy, less harried and more down time is a liar.

At least he lied to me, because summer be crazy! Ha!

While it has been less structured, for sure, and we’ve been able to sleep a little later in the mornings, there is nothing slow or easy about it. Fun? Absolutely! Slow and easy? Not on your life!

You see, we go 90 to nothin’ and cram as much gosh-darn fun into each and every second.

Yes, we see more of each other and see our friends and extended family more, but we are always go, go, going. That’s nice, but it’s hard to feel like I’m on vacation when I need a break from the vacation. Do you know what I mean? Or am I standing all alone over here.

I’ve told you before that I love, love, love all of the summer things. I love the colors of the water and the late nights with sunshine until 8 o’clock. I love the cozy and carefree, the flip flops and the smell of sunscreen.

But as an introvert who likes her schedule, it can be a bit crazy.

Isn’t that the way life goes, though? There is always a give and take.

It’s fun, but crazy. Busy, but the time of our lives. Exhausting, but the best days of the year.

I find this to be true about motherhood as well. Or my job.

Momming (I just made up a word, y’all!) is the most intense and fulfilling job I’ve ever done. It’s 24/7, all day errr-day and I wouldn’t trade it for all the gold in the world. The moments when my children tell me they love me or that I’m the awesomest mom ever just make me full of joy.

Last night my youngest sang every last word of “You Are My Sunshine” with me as I was rocking her to sleep. I’ve sung it to her for her whole life, but at 2.5 years old she sang it with me and it was the cutest thing this momma has ever heard. If I could have bottled it up, I would. I almost tried to get my phone and record it, but it would’ve ruined the moment.

And this little job of mine. It’s so stressful at times, but I absolutely love the fact that I can do what I love at home while loving on my babies and being here for them.

I can take off to spend several days with my mom, or go visit a friend. I can work late at night while the kids are in bed so that I can spend the day at the pool with them.

It gets overwhelming at times. And you have to learn how to call in help when needed, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!

So as I sit and reflect on how I’m feeling this summer, like I can’t catch my breathe for all the fun being had. I just have to remind myself to sit back and relax and enjoy it. Take in the rhythm of crazy these two very short months, because before we know it we’ll be sharpening pencils and filling up backpacks
