This is what some stay-at-home moms have told me in the past: "I don't know how you do it." Well, to be honest, I don't know either. I just do. There is no other option that I know of. I would love to call in sick and just lounge around with my girls - especially today.
My eyes are tired and scratchy, I am coming down with a cold, I am burnt out of the morning race to get out the door with everyone fed, dressed, hair brushed, teeth brushed, etc. Granted, my husband does a lot of work to make it all happen, as I am hardly very functional in the morning. (Have to mention him since he might read this and cry foul.) I am just completely grouchy and don't want to go to work today.
There is grocery shopping to do, laundry to do, Thanksgiving and Christmas planning to do, napping to do... Some days I just wish I had a mommy to take care of me and tell me that it's going to be alright. She could pet my head and give me big hugs and say, "I know you can do it - but you don't have to if you don't want to."
Boo hoo. There is my pity party for this morning. Now I guess I'll 'put on my big girl panties' and get back to work.
