Everyone needs something from mom

Everyone needs something from mom

Mom, mom, mommy, mom

Ahhh, today has been one of those days, I am not sure how I am holding my shit together. Some days it feels like I have a never ending to do list that will never get done because everyone else in this house needs something. It seems as though mom usually gets pushed to the bottom of the list, hair is pulled into a bun on top of my head, living in workout clothes, that may or may not actually be worn to workout in, and a house that is getting messier by the minute. But everyone needs something from mom

I feel the increasing urge to curl up in a ball under my heated blanket and ignore the world today.

However, that would do me absolutely no good because my children have waged a war against each other today. Poking, laughing, stealing toys and doing anything to make the other scream and cry; which of course means mom must intervene and tell the other to be nice. Seriously, how many damn times a day do I have to tell them to just be nice? Today seems to be worse than others, just about every ten minutes one is having a fit. They use to be so sweet to each other, loves and snuggles, what happened to the sweet days. They are long gone with the wind I suppose. For today I will continue to be the mediator and referee so no one gets hurt. Hopefully they lay down for a nap soon because mom has so much to do.

Even my hubby today seem extra needy. Did I miss the memo that it was drive mom up a wall day? It is clearly a success at this point and mom is about to lose her shit. “No babe I am not going to cook you chicken to go on your salad.” “What did you say, your children were screaming in my ear.” He seems to think I just don’t want to listen to him anymore. Some days I swear he is like my third child and as much as I love him, today is not the day to be extra needy for my attention. I can only do so many things at once. I love you, I love you, I love you and its not your fault I am having a hard day but lets not add to it.

Even with the fighting children and the attention needing husband I still have so many things around the house to be doing. My laundry has been sitting on my couch since last night, the dishes are pilling up, every toy my kids own is laying on my living room  floor and bathrooms need cleaned. Despite not wanting to do any of this today, I will pull up my big girl panties and get shit done, because it is just a bad day in a beautiful life. Even if I don’t get it all done it is better than curling up in a ball and submitting.

Being a mom is a thankless job, with shit pay and no vacation days but it is still the best job around! To all you mommas having a day where it feels like everyone needs something from you, breath, have a glass of wine (even if it is 10 AM), lock yourself in the bathroom and regroup. Tonight you will lay in bed and feel like supermom, as you should.
