When the rest of the states are hanging out and cooking on the grill for memorial day, I am at home by myself with the kiddos. The hubby is a bread delivery man, so he is out and about all day filling up those stores so you all can have your bread for your hotdogs and hamburgers. Anyhoo, It was me and the kiddos all day! Which was enjoyable,exhausting,fun,and did I say exhausting all at the same time!
I made three meals, then cleaned up after said meals. We did nap time, play time,t.v. time, quiet time, not so quiet time all day long! I must admit, I have a whole new appreciation for stay at home moms. I already had the appreciation, but it’s definitely more heightened after today.
We started off with breakfast and quiet time so mommy could clean the kitchen. Watched a little t.v. and around 10:00 it was time for buddy to take a nap. So I layed him down, and the girls decided to get wild. Running around,being silly. Me yelling to not take water and dump on the recliner! Where did she get that idea from anyway! This kid has lost her mind, and soaked my recliner in the process!
Before I knew it was time for buddy to wake up, and then to make lunch. clean up lunch, and them some outdoor water play! We played and played. The water table at least gave me a few minutes of rest whew! That was until the kiddos thought it would be fun to get me wet too! After water we did ice cream and watermelon. What was I thinking! Sticky,sticky mess on buddy which resulted in a bath for him!
After bath, we had a little quiet time. The kids read books while I finished cleaning the kitchen. After that time I put buddy down for nap#2. Playing outside wore him out. In the meantime it was laundry, and cleaning the bathroom and my bedroom! Seriously, This is supposed to be a day off for me! What the heck! I don’t even think I have gone to the restroom yet!
Next it was time to prepare dinner and buddy wakens up. So as I am preparing dinner the hubby is home! We have dinner, and all is well. Except the hubby goes and takes a shower while I am still tending to the kids!
What the hell I mean I haven’t even had a shower yet! While the hubby is in the shower I smell something Super stinky, and yep! My son has crapped his brains out and all over my leg! Well, at least this forces me to shower now, before I might not have gotten one! I clean up buddy and then I take my shower.
We are settling down for the evening now, and buddy has had yet another diarrhea poop! Uggh! Is the day over yet! almost…Oh and the hubby is fast asleep on the couch, What the hell moment #2! I’m pretty sure my marriage couldn’t take me being a stay at home mom, because here I am ready for a break, and he is asleep on the couch! You have to be kidding me!
If the above has exhausted you like it has me, then remember to appreciate any stay at home moms that you know! Because I tell you what, it is a job! and My house isn’t any cleaner than when I woke up this morning! In fact, ,y bedroom which I so diligently cleaned today is once again a mess thanks to my little
hellions darlings.Once I get this crazy bunch to sleep, then the day is still not over. Have to pack lunch boxes, and school backpacks. Set out clothes for in the morning, and have a quick breakfast for the morning ready to go! Whew, two things are for sure… I need a maid, and a mom’s job is never done!… To stay at home moms everywhere, You do not get enough credit for the tough job that you do day in and day out!
