Y’all like how I’m all over the place online for a couple of weeks and then I seem to fall off the face of the earth? I promise it wasn’t my fault this time… I didn’t want to let go of bloglandia like I have in the past.
Instead… I was playing mom. Literally. And now, I’m exhausted!
I don’t know how you do it!
This past week has been one of the most exciting weeks for me work and business wise. It was crazy, thrilling, and unbelievable. I’m still pinching myself!
However, my mom was out of town visiting my grandfather, so I was also in charge here at home. All alone!
I had a cranky toddler, whiny preteen, and a typical teenager under my wing for 5 days… talk about some serious birth control!
Okay, I’ve never been in a relationship, so becoming a mommy is just something I dream about… but when you live it and experience it, even if it’s just for 5 days and you didn’t go through 9 months of pregnancy, the feeling of becoming a mom left my mind and hasn’t come back.
Between driving one to football practice, the other to cheer practice, and then having to entertain the toddler at Barnes & Noble because you didn’t have gas to drive back to your side of town… it’s exhausting.
I can’t count the number of times I wanted to pull my hair out.
Oh, and then you think the older two would help you with the baby while you did important stuff like cook, wash dishes, or you know do a little work because your clients are wondering what the heck is up… yeah, that was a huge fail!
Want some proof?
That was taken at about 3:00 am…
I decided it was easier to get some work done while he was asleep in my arms then it was to take him to bed risking him waking up.
14 bath times, 3 late nights, 6 hours of washing dishes later…
and I survived.
But, I’ve also discovered that I’m so not ready to be a mom any time soon!
And I’m SO GLAD that my mom is finally home!
