Thoughts on my Current State

Mama Time button<>

This is one of those "I've got to be honest" posts. I have been getting burnt out. I just want time with no one screaming, crying or needing me- and not just for precious time to relax (which don't get me wrong, I would love!), but just to get my house clean! Maybe it's silly and I just need to suck it up and deal, but it really frustrates me to have a list in the morning of things I want or need to accomplish, and get to the end of the day with nearly nothing done! I know it is just the season that I'm in, that someday things will get easier again, but in the midst of this period I am just... tired.

It's tough to realize that you're not super woman- and I have been having that realization like a harsh slap in the face! Awwww... the joys of postpartum adjustment! Yeah me!

I will be more positive next week.

Want to commiserate? Post (with the Mama Time Button) and link! Here's to easier days!

I can SOOOO relate- I think our babies are about the same age ( mine was born June 13 09) and while out of 5 kiddos he is pretty laid back- just wants to be held all the time and if I could just do that it would be great but trying to juggle it all and everyone seems to think after the first 3-4 weeks all is back to "normal" it is such a hard transitions-- dinner- ? lol! whats that?- and I LOVE to cook!, laundry ( I dont love that!) it all around- just trying to make sure I have clean diapers most days! tee hee!! and showering-- well thats a funny one too! most days are great others days I soo feel your words- being supermom is hard! luv your realness:) many hugs today!!

I understand... You can't do it all. At the end of our days really if baby and toddler are happy I think we've done a great job! Because honestly cleaning is nearly impossible when you have to nurse one and play with the other.

i so hear you on this post!!! this sounds like everyday to me - I never get done what I want and it drive me crazy! I've recently realized that I think i'm setting too high expectation of myself (or so Im telling myself to make me feel better about my dirty house! haha!)
anyway, to lift your spirits - are you up for an award? I just gave you one on my blog - stop by when you get a chance :)

I think the last few years have been like that for me. To where I'll price out daycares or whatnot seeing how much it would cost to get the kids out of the house for a few days to finally vacuum the baseboards or deep clean the kitchen floor that desperately needs it or finally go through the disaster area known as the basement (aka, pile/box magnet).
