Last night after we had gotten home oober late, I grabbed the first book I found to read to my daughter in bed so as to get her to sleep as quick as possible. It was “If You Give a Moose a Muffin”.
We love those books. Yet as I read it I realized it is quite like my life, the story of my life and my brain.
I do one thing, don’t quite finish it, move on to another and and another and eventually get back to the first thing I started on.
Like just now. I finally got my son to sleep for a late nap, the big girls are in the basement …painting…scary I know and the baby is sleeping. So I do the dishes, then go to pick up the pile of toys my son dumped out earlier and realize the basket they belong in isn’t there. I search for the basket and find it full of pantry items my daughter had put in as she was “shopping.” I take the basket back to the pantry and put the items away leaving the basket empty then go back to the pile of toys and throw them in the basket. Crayon stubs, garbage pieces, books that don’t belong and all. I know I’m working on not being lazy and should have put the items where they truly belong, but at least it’s cleaned up right? I did put the stray cheese puff in the garbage…*good mamma*.
Constantly going in circles not quite finishing anything that I would like to do.
For instance I am typing, but now I must leave and get my son who as woken up and coheres him to go downstairs too so that I can come back and finish this blog…
There the deed is done…somewhat…a pair of pants got put away, the door and window to my room got opened cause it was hot and the wonderful smell of my room was soaked in for a brief second. Yes I stood in my room and smelled it. Weird I know. And my sons nose was wiped. But now he is screaming by the front door and I am ignoring him typing this.
Fabric softener placed in our rooms is genius. Makes everything smell so much better. Diapers less potent, clothes so much more exciting to put on and the breeze from the window makes it all float around the room and my kids smell so much better cause they sit in their drawers! Genius I say.
Mommy-hood is not for the faint of heart and it messes with your brain a little. To all you mommies and daddies that are around…Go! Go! You rock!
