I seriously get this comment EVERY SINGLE DAY.
"Oh my, bless your heart..you have your hands full"
"Boy do you have your hands full"
"Ha Ha Ha...you have your hands full"
"Goodness girl you have your hands full"
SO FOR ALL THOSE MOMMAS OUT THEIR RAISING KIDS (1, 2, 3, OR FIVE)...
DON'T WE ALL HAVE OUR HANDS FULL.....
Here is the basis of a day in the life of "mommy"....
WAAAWWAAAAWWAAAAA...(babies and or toddlers crying!@!!!)
"Mommy, i pooped, help me"
"I want two cookies cause i am two"
"Can we go jump"
"Stop,_______ (fill in the blank with a siblings name), it's MINE"
"RING RING...phone mommy!"
"DING DING...its the 'ups' man mommy, No honey that is the United Parcels Service man dear!"
"Nap time, everyone upstairs, potty, get lovies, and jump straight to bed"
"I don't like vegetables, I want a pop-tart"
"Mommy, the boys are climbing again"
"Stop,_______(fill in the blank with a siblings name), it's MINE!"
***Here is a very important part of the day...it is about NOON and the COFFEE POT IS ON....AGAIN!!!!**** Amazing the difference a tiny bit of caffeine will make for mommy:)
You get the picture...and if you are a mom who just got dressed for the day (during naptime) welcome to the world of SAHM..stay at home mom...OH yeah, and I should mention here that I am only a "temporary" SAHM...I will return to my teaching career (and real clothes) next school year:)
Now you see why I run marathons and dedicate some much needed ME time to myself each day. If you don't you won't make it a week with a bunch of little ones before wanting to cry,whine,pitch a fit,eat junk food,and become irritable with everyone who speaks to you..sound familiar??? YES....hello mommies, i am talking about your toddlers who if they don't eat well, play and exercise,and rest sufficiently they become ILL!!!
This Momma's best advice for having your "hands full" is to not forget to take care of you..
Not telling you to indulge in Kentucky Fried Garbage, or "sleep it off"...I think a bulk of broccoli and a cup of joe with 30min. of activity is a better recipe for feeling whole again.
So with that said, I was kinda tinkering with an idea???
I would like to start another blog (not that I can even keep up with this one as is..) but one with "Just the GOODS" advice that is for raising babies, multiples, kids, husbands (oops..sorry honey), and being the absolute best woman of God we all desire to be. I am thinking about it. It would be short and purposeful. It would be goal driven. Yes, I actually have goals in my day and week and even year that I would like to accomplish. It would be interactive (if I had some friends to participate) and I really think we'd all enjoy it. I am going to continue this "miracle babies" blog because I owe it to my boys and their story to keep it going. I love documenting our family experiences with our children, but I have a few ideas and bits of advice I'd like to share and of course advice I search for as well.
Yall have a great day!
