I Deserve a Medal For the Time I…

Wow! Countless, countless times… I deserve a medal every time I wake up! Just kidding. This is hard considering I do a great job thinking about all the things I do wrong and how to correct it, and rarely about things I handle well.

Seriously, I will spend days reflecting on what I did wrong, how I could do it better, sometimes formulating an apology for what I consider to be really bad behavior.

But what do I do well, even well enough to get a medal? Honestly, I had to think about this for a couple of days.

I’m going to declare that deserve a medal for moving across country 7 months pregnant, anticipating living in a two bedroom condo, only to find out that we would all be in one bedroom sharing it with my SIL. All while being the only one getting up in the middle of the night and the only one to sleep train her and be her only caregiver during the day.

I know many other women who’ve had to conquer similar circumstances and we all deserve a medal because this is no joke. I’m exhausted, sleep-deprived, and not to forget now 8 months pregnant.

What do you deserve a medal for?

  1. I think you do totally deserve a medal for this and couldn't even imagine moving 7 months pregnant even in the best of circumstances. Seriously you are my hero and thank you for linking up with us again this week!! πŸ™‚

    1. Goodness girl. I know it's for the good of the family, but I just wish it were SO much easier! Tanks for hosting! I'm loving these prompts!

  2. I deserve a medal for still smiling after all the shit that life has thrown my direction the last couple of weeks. Ugh … but I smile. Because I have a little girl that loves to see me happy.

    1. I'm so sorry hun! I hope things get better real soon for you. Oh, the kids really keep me grounded. It's amazing how they can not only be my stressor but my stress reliever!

      1. *finds megaphone*

        Is this thing on?

        *clears throat*

        HEY, YOU! Husband! The one over there with the pregnant, over-taxed wife! She's good people – you're good people – any chance you can give her a break and take her to dinner or give her a foot rub or something? She's TIRED, yo! Worn out. Needs your Manly Support And Strength. I KNOW you can do it. Be the difference, and be the guiding light for all other husbands whose verypregnant wives need a bit of a boost. You rock πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks so much! We're still here (for now). Maybe I'll tell the tale of the family realtor soon! Looks like we'll be here through the birth of my daughter.

  3. I believe anyone who can move at 7 months prego deserves a medal too. I also admire you for creating a blog around maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It's not easy changing our eating habits and level of physical activity long term so I admire those who even attempt to do it! You go girl! Found your blog post on Raising Imperfection πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you very much! I try to watch what I eat even more right now, since exercise is limited. It's been fairly easy (mainly because I'm lazy, so I only keep healthy snacks on hand), except when I get a big sugar craving! I'll be stopping by your corner in a little while. Thank you for stopping by mine!

  4. You totally deserve a medal!! I deserve a medal for raising two teenage boys. πŸ˜‰ Good men now too, but I don't take that credit, that had to be a God thing as much as I messed it up. πŸ˜‰ I saw you co-hosting the Raising Imperfection hop and came to say hello. πŸ™‚

    1. I cannot imagine what it's like to raise teenagers! Right now mine are little and I find them a bit overwhelming! You definitely deserve a medal… but always remember God gave you to be their mother, so you deserve a little bit of credit! Thanks for stopping by Rosey!
