I didn’t come up with this phrase, but it fully and simply explains how busy and stressful mom life can truly get! This meme perfectly illustrates how I can be. I start off my day chasing my crazy toddler around. And then by the end of the night, I say, “ok here is a perfect opportunity to get some housework done, she’ll be down for the night” WRONG! All I want to do is lay out on the couch with a glass of wine and conk out!
The next part of the phase is pondering over my goals. Have I done anything today that will get me closer to my goals? Oh good lord, I haven’t really accomplished much besides surviving the adventures of Naomi my 2 year old!
So with that said, my advice to my fellow Moms is yes make sure you sit down and take some time for yourself, because when you don’t, you have even less to give to your family. But, also don’t forget about those very important goals you set for yourself and how it meant everything to you to accomplish them no matter what. Housework may not be one of those goals, but having an organized well-balanced family life, may be. So, girlfriend here’s some motivation. GET UP AND GET IT DONE, YOU’VE GOT THIS!
