Alright folks. What the heck is wrong with me? I have been a moody hormonal mess lately. Okay, not thaaaaat bad, BUT I am in desperate need of a vacation away from the kiddos. I am happy to say my mother is coming tomorrow to visit me and it will be SO GREAT. The last few weeks have just seemed to be so stressful and I feel like things I normally handle well are just almost unbearable. IE- the kids all trying to get my attention at the same time for different reasons and I feel like screaming cause I cannot handle all of their different needs at the same time and they don't understand why not.
I want to be the best mom I can possibly be. I am up every day racing against the clock to get a million things done for and with my kids. Every single thing I clean up gets immedietly messed up by someone and I sometimes feel like why do I even bother to clean it in the first place? And then theres the fact that the whole ten minutes I actually sat down today I had not one, but two kids on my lap even though the laptop was in my lap.
You know you need a break when you get to close the door when going to the bathroom and that feels like a vacation in and of itself.
Sorry to vent. I was finally feeling a little space tonight as the two older boys were in the bath and I was making Kyler's bed up with clean sheets (did I mention today was "clean all the sheets" day in my house, therefore like 8 loads of laundry on top of all the other cleaning I did?) when keaton was trying to help me and tripped over a sheet as I was picking it up- he fell into the dresser and split his lip open--resulting in a fat lip, lots of tears, and BLOOD all over the newly washed sheets. It about pushed me over the edge.
Oh don't worry my friends. I need a good vent now and then and then I bounce back to my usually happy self. My mom coming will be the exact break I need. We have every day planned with a few fun things and we are planning a girls night out, just the two of us. I am SO EXCITED! So next time I post, lets hope this slump is over and I am refreshed and renewed!
