One of my very best friends (who just had her gorgeous baby girl!) coined the term “‘xhausted” to describe the level of exhaustion of her cat when he couldn’t pick himself up from the floor because he was simply too tired.
Today, team Gwinn, especially the matriarch, is ‘xhausted. No, I didn’t just have a baby, no I’m not pregnant, and no, I wasn’t out partying all weekend. For some reason, I just haven’t had the energy to stay awake during the days lately, which we all know is a bad equation when mini Gwinn is thrown into the mix. Today he sat on my while he watched an episode of Oswald while I snoozed. Not my proudest parenting moment, I assure you, but an honest one nonetheless.
So Team Gwinn is in the middle of moving a little further away from the city (woohoo!), but the process has been arduous to say the least. In the middle of all this, I’ve had two of my other very wonderful friends (both of whom are in their third trimester with their second children!) offer to come over to our house to help me pack. Talk about some amazing mamas, ya’ll. And then I stumbled upon this blog on Pinterest, Finding Joy: Ten Simple Ways to Bless a Mom, and my sleepy eyes welled up just thinking about how other moms need one another for support.
So, interwebs, I want to take a moment to tell you guys about Mama V. I’ve told you about how much I love Tay C, E Wizzle and Lu Lu, but not Mama V. She is the personification of finishing school wrapped in Southern hospitality with the grace of the Queen herself. Her daughter, mini Gwinn’s betrothed, is brilliant and polite and a living testament to the wonderful mother Mama V truly is. I am so, SO blessed to have all my mom friends in our lives, and Mama V: I love you. You’re incredible! I can’t wait to meet baby V. You and hubs are so blessed to have such a lovely family and Team Gwinn is so blessed to know you.
I hope you all have a more alert week than I expect to! And in the mean time, give a mama some love, ya’ll.
