Here's an interesting question.. Name one thing you do every day that you swore you would never do as a mother?
Motherhood is a wonderful responsibility - but it can also be exhausting, confusing, infuriating and downright funny. I always say moms have the toughest job in the world if you're doing it right. My mind is telling me it's time to wake up, my body is telling me it can't move, my inner voice is yelling lack of sleep last night, my motherly instincts are telling me to get my butt out of bed..I am not with it today which means I am cranky, (that may be the be the biggest understatement of the century!!).
Will my son and daughter fall asleep simultaneously so that I can get some sanity and allow my body the time to align and maybe even get some rest? The problem is you can no longer choose your activities, your down time, when you get to sleep. No matter what you do or where you go, you're always tethered to these other human beings in this unbreakable, incredibly fragile way. Anything you do will affect these children potentially for the rest of their lives.
On the other hand, do I go to the kitchen to start cooking so that I don't have to do it later?
Oh no.. there is laundry piled up upstairs that I need to attend to, shall I do that first? I can do this I can work and rest later... later? when later??!! when both the kids are awake screaming and yelling. Little one needs a feed, older one is teething, so both are cranky which means cranky humans under one roof...!
I will get it all done eventually. The one universal truth about motherhood seems to be that no one ever tells you what to really expect. I know I have had to learn the toughest lessons from experience. I know me better than anyone, I am a wife, I am a mother so I should have the superwoman powers to make it all happen but first let me start my day with a coffee!!!!
