Theres just not enough hours in a day for me anymore. It was simple when I had one child..a little more difficult when I had the second..but I had it under control but now that I have 3...thats 3 in different stages of life with 3 very different needs...I am losing the foothold I once had on getting everything done and still finding time to be ME..I can't even sit and read an article in a newspaper let alone read an entire book anymore.I miss reading :(
I've got the laundry and dishes piled up.I'm still in my pajamas and its almost 1 in the afternoon! This is NOT the me I used to be or the ME that I want to be.
How did you do it ALL?Cleaning the house,Cooking 3 meals a days,basketball practices and games,diaper duties,nursing, bedtimes stories and baths..and every thing else that goes along with being a mom.
Don't get me wrong..I LOVE being a mommy..I wouldnt trade it for anything in the world.I just need to get myself on a schedule or something..I just don't know how anymore?Some days I am able to have the house sparkling and be on top of everything..and then I look at myself...still in pj's...hair is a mess...circles under my eyes from lack of sleep. I suppose a sacrifice of self is the sacrifice I had to make just to make sure everything else is in order.At the end of that..I'm beyond exhaustion and I have to do it all over again.
My kids are 10yrs,2yrs and 4 months.
