My kids. The little sweet things they do. The smiles, cuddles, etc. I get lovely art work from the big one "I love you mom", seeing the girls playing together, my baby playing on a blanket at the park. Just taking each moment as they come. In the hard times with the baby, I know that it is all just a phase and before I know it she will be a elementary school kid jumping out of the car refusing a hug and kiss because I embarrass her!

By getting organized. I've been really overwhelmed so when I get up in the morning I decide a few things out of the big list of stuff that needs to get done that I will do today. That way eventually it all gets done but I don't feel the pressure.

For instance, today I did the dishes and polished my leather boots for fall (they were super grungy from spring and sitting in the mud room all summer). I also decided this evening I'll do laundry and I am going to go for a long walk with Oz this afternoon.

Mommyhood is about the only think I'm motivated to do LOL. There is no real why, I just love my kids and enjoy the day to day stuff- even baths, diapers, clean up etc. Now cleaning up after my stepson (14) and dh...that I need motivation for! Also, school is hard for me to stay motivated sometimes. But for me that ties in to mommyhood. The faster I can get a degree that better financially I can provide for them.
