There really aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. I don’t know how full-time working moms do it. I have so much respect for those women. Seriously anyone who says being a mom is easy, or isn’t that hard is lying. If they have found a way for it to be easy, please share and definitely write a book.
I look forward to my days when both kids are in school, just to be able to eat, uninterrupted at a table, to listen to any music I want and to be able to go to the grocery store and not constantly have to say “No we’re not getting that!” These are little things but the quiet of not having two kids running around crazy or screaming and fighting with one another has become my luxury. I love my kids and I love my time with them, but it’s important to have some quality “me” time. I look around and see that the house is a mess and needs to be cleaned or in my case since we just moved, unpacked and all I want is a magic wand or a fairy godmother to come in and say “abra cadabra” and it’s done. Unfortunately, my life is not a fairytale and I’m not a princess. I’m back in my reality and it’s back to being MOM.
