If you’re reading this you may or may not be a mom. If you’re not- you could probably care less, but I feel the need to discuss it!
Lately I have been in what feels like a major mom funk and I will explain.
1- I am tired ALL. THE. TIME. and I am over it. My kids are actually pretty good sleepers and for the most part sleep through the night. We go to bed at a reasonable hour and I am still tired. By 2pm you can stick a fork in me because I am just done! (Side note- do people even use that expression anymore or is it just me?)
2- I have ZERO motivation when it comes to exercising. I wish I was one of those people that just loved to exercise, but I’m not. I pay for a way overpriced exercise class and I barely go. Here is the thing, in order to go, I have to set my alarm and get up around 5:30am to make it to the 6am class. There are two problems here I am NOT a morning person and incase you missed number 1 one the list- I’M TIRED. I should add that when I do actually go, I feel much better as a mom and a person. I also don’t feel as bad about my wine! If you don’t know me in real life, you will soon learn about my love for wine! You would think that would be enough to get me up and moving in the morning, but it’s not!
3- My little humans are driving me nuts! I love my girls more than life itself, but gracious these attitudes! The not listening, the asking for snacks a million times a day and the whining may be the death of me. This is seriously a whole topic in itself where I will be asking for all the parenting advice that you care to give to me.
4- The mess. My house is covered in crumbs and toys! I start everyday with “no eating anywhere except the kitchen” and “we will be cleaning these toys up before we get out something else”. Lets talk about how long that lasts! Maybe 30 seconds? I then say screw it and move on so maybe I can finish my coffee before heating it back up for the 3rd time! However, I know I will miss the little toys and crumbs when they’ve locked themselves in their rooms with their snacks and cell phone. I’ve decided that I WILL be the parent to take the hinges off their doors! Did your dad threaten to do that to you or just mine?
If you made it this far, bless your heart!
