Monday Confessional


After a month of working two jobs (my own part time office job + filling in part time for my sister's much more complicated & demanding office job while she's on maternity leave), while also being responsible for my home, my three children, & managing their fall schedules which include volleyball, soccer, and piano lessons, aaaand planning a huge 24-hour scrapbook event coming up in a month, I am ready to make the following confessions:

1. I am a weeenie. I don't know how full-time working mothers do it. I don't. I'm sure not doing it. Not well at least. MY HATS OF TO YOU, AMAZING WORKING MOTHERS OF THE WORLD.

2. I now call my house "the badlands". It's a literal pit of despair. Children are eating poptarts and whatever else they can scrounge up for meals, and searching for socks in the dirty laundry pile because I can not face the housework. CAN. NOT.

3. On multiple occasions I have climbed into bed by 7:00 pm and stayed there for the rest of the evening.

4. My tolerance level for normal sibling bickering has plummeted and last week two of my children were dropped off a 1/4 mile from home and told to walk the rest of the way. It was heavenly.

5. I keep forgetting to actually take a break and use the bathroom during the day. (That's probably not healthy.)

6. My weekends are currently filled with grocery shopping, laundry, and cleaning. I declare this to be EL LAME-O.

7. When my husband emailed me to say he hadn't realized how much work I do as a mainly stay-at-home mom, and that he was glad his eyes had been opened, I fist-pumped the air and declared this short season of craziness ALL WORTH IT. :)
