Yesterday started out as ‘one of those days’. I got up before the crack of dawn 8am but my boys were already up and moving. So I get up, get moving and am bombarded with requests… “Mom I need breakfast, Mom I can’t find socks, Mom my brother hit me, MOM!!!!!”
All before I have wiped the sleep from my eyes.
All before I have time to say “Good Morning, joys of my life.”
Ah the struggles of motherhood.
I really had to laugh at this rendition of “If you Give a Mouse a Cookie” (shared with me by a friend on Facebook). Because it is so me. Hubs will come home quite often. Take a look at the house. Wonder out loud, “What in the weed of world did you do today?”
How do you manage your time as a mom? I have resolved to set my alarm, even during this glorious summer vacation. Thirty minutes before the kids get up is such a welcomed way to get the day going. Small jobs finished (including downing a cup of coffee without losing it! Amazing!) Any tips or tricks for the seasoned moms (like me) or the new moms (like I was not so long ago).
