A Little Love To All The Moms/Dads

OK, I have just spent about 8 hours straight with my kids, being their primary and only caregiver except for a 20 minute break.

With Chris gone golfing, I thought that I'd started out on the right foot with sleeping in. And that was such a good decision that lasted me through about 4, which is when I thought that he would be home. By that time however, I was slowly unraveling, which makes me so ashamed! I want him to play golf and have a good time. I want to spend time with my kids, but Holy Mary, not for almost 8 hours straight by myself. And in all honesty, they get pretty sick of my mug too.

So, I wanted to send out the love to all of the parents that slowly unravel, yet keep it somewhat together. Today, I felt your pain and your strength! All love to you.

I'm able to write this in the quiet, Thank You! because they are all on a walk to get pizza. Then, they will return in time for their wonderful sitter, and I get to go out for dinner! Oh yeah, with Chris too. And in all honesty, I shouldn't be mad, because it really wasn't his fault he was late.

My mantra today, whispered to myself many many times, "patience patience patience" in slow breaths. Patience for all of us.

Congrats to me!!! I made it! I"m going to change out of these baby-mama clothes into something nice!

I have a high respect for moms. ESPECIALLY stay-at-home moms. I have no children of my own, and my mom told me once that she heard a quote that described motherhood perfectly:

The decision to have a child is to accept that for the rest of your life, your heart will walk around outside of your body.

That's not verbatim, and I don't know who said it, but it sounds pretty accurate. :)

Your post made me smile.
I love that you are genuine.
It's a quality I value in my friends.

It makes me want to meet you in person even more one day.

Thanks for sharing! :)

Yes! I totally understand. I feel bad because I don't get to spend time with my kids. Yet when I am with them, I get tired and cranky. Then I feel guilty. It's kind of a viscious circle, huh? :D
Hope you and Chris had an AWESOME time on your date.

All I can think to say is "lol", as a sinlge mom with no real family, it's nice to know Iam not crazy in the way I feel sometimes.
