If I were to tell someone that I have 3 week old twins – that’s right, not one but two newborns – plus 3 other kids under the age of 6 at home and my wife has yet to complain and/or act tired, people wouldn’t believe me.. Trust me, it is TRUE!
Becca has not only been Miss Amazing with every single one of her 4 pregnancies (very few complaints, zero to none weird cravings, etc), she also shines when it comes down to motherhood! Her level of patience with the kids and tackling all her responsibilities is to admire… and one virtue I wish I had more of… When shit hits the fan at home, I am usually the one to lose it first. Hehe.
Yeah, probably her many years as an Assistant Principal at a middle school and being surrounded by kids and loud noises helps… but man, she is good!
For the past couple of weeks we’ve had the privilege to have her mom and step dad at our home helping us out with the babies and with the other 3 kids (holding babies, changing diapers, taking kids to school and extracurricular activities, etc). But the day they left, Becca was put to the test. For the first time in 3 weeks, she would have to take care of Emilio, Alejandro AND Santiago at home, then pick up Nico and Nati from their school, take Nati to her dance class (wait for her with the other 4 kids in tow) and then head back home.
Knowing how daunting this was going to be, I offered help and offered to leave work early to go at least pick up Nati from dance class. She turned my offer down saying “I got it. I am going to have to do it someday, so I might as well start today”… I even gave her 1 more hour to change her mind but my phone never rang and I never got a text….
Not only did she rock the entire ordeal, but as I walked into our house, she was cooking dinner! And on top of that it was yummy!
I was crazy impressed and proud of her. Once again she tackled it head first, no ifs or buts about it. Rocked it. Her assertiveness gave me a peace of mind and a “we got this” feeling. Felt good.
Thanks Super Momma. You Rock. We are so lucky to have you. Keep on rocking. 🙂
