This post was inspired by Mckmama, who posted this today and I must say, it felt good to read and made me think that I wanted to do the same. We are hard on ourselves as mamas. If you are inspired to do the same, post a link to your blog on my comments.
Sometimes, I realize that it has been so long since I have been to the grocery store that all we have in the fridge are condiments. Sometimes, I realize it is noon and all I have had to eat or drink is coffee. Sometimes, I stop to think and am shocked to discover that it has been more than a day since my last shower! Sometimes, I bring my baby girl to bed with me all night even though she will sleep in her own bed (unlike her brother) just because I want to cuddle with her. Sometimes, I take it all out on Doug at the end of the day, even though he is the most amazing supportive husband in the world. Sometimes, I don't want to play cars or trains, I just want to sit on my butt and watch TV. Sometimes, I let my boy watch a movie just so I can get some time to myself. Sometimes, I go to bed at 8 and sleep until 8 the next day! Sometimes, I wake up to an incredibly messy house and wonder how in the world it got that way! Sometimes, there is so much clean laundry piled up on our small couch that we can't sit on it. Sometimes, it feels really freaking good to get it all off my chest, like I am doing right now and to realize that I am not perfect and that I can't do it all!
