*Dramatic Music* Funny title huh? lol
We all have those moments when we want to grab a glass of wine, sit down, and watch a movie…So we wait until the kids are down, we pop that DVD in the player, grab a blanket, cuddle up on the couch, and get nice and comfy with our glass of whatever it is that night….the movie starts and BAM…..we hear one of babies…that’s the story. LOL!
We, as moms are exhausted and that is something that neither dads nor our friends without kids will ever understand. We are ALWAYS exhausted. I am fairly young. I’m 26, 4 (5, counting the husband, lol) kids, full time job, family farm, and a bunch of housework to keep up with, not to mention the cat and the two dogs we have which are kind of just like kids…I am always exhausted and I always want a nap…my goodness what I would do for a nap in the middle of the day. I know for sure that I am not the only one that feels this way. I can name off a handful of mommas who would kill for a girl’s day.
You ever wonder what we do when we are away from the kids and we can sit there without our little snot nosed booger monsters tugging at our clothes, saying mom, momma, mommy, mom…lol. We enjoy the quiet. We sit there and realize that we don’t have to answer any questions like, “Can we have candy or a snack?” “Can we have this?” “Can we have that?”, and then there is the “But mmmoooommm” afterwards when they don’t like our answers. We think…yes us women are dangerous thinkers…but we do it. Our minds get the best of us. We attempt to have adult conversations when we aren’t talking about all the cute things our kids did this week…lol. Go figure huh? Our worlds really do revolve around those kids!
On the rare occasion we get some time to ourselves we are longing for a nap or some really strong coffee…Or maybe something stronger. Tonight like many other nights, I am exhausted and my little monsters are full of energy. I’m sitting here thinking I wish I had that much energy as I down my gallon of coffee! lol…it’s really only a 20 oz cup! Don’t judge me! In the rare occasion we can make it to the nail salon to do something with our horrendous nails (fingers and toes), we are hoping that that massage chair gets right between our shoulders. There are many days we could go for a massage. We really do need it. I literally beg my husband to rub my feet and he HATES feet…so the answer is usually NO…BOOOOOOOO!!!!! He does rub my back sometimes…well his version of a back massage which consists of him running his fingers across my back ever so gently. I cherish it all because I know he really doesn’t want to do it. We long for breakfast in bed or someone to make dinner for us. We wish someone would clean the house really good just one day. But, we as women and moms know that no one else can do it as well as we can because we know how we want our house. We long for a date with our husbands. Yes..you heard it, well read it! We want to go on dates with our husbands/boyfriends/Significant other. We want to enjoy a dinner with just the two of us. We need it. Although when I go out on a date with my husband, we usually sit in quiet….I think we just enjoy that we don’t have four little monsters screaming for us or making lots of noise.
We, Moms, also realize that one day our kiddos won’t be so little anymore and then we want to be around them again because we don’t want to miss a single thing. And then it is a never ending cycle of how we want peace and quiet…but not too much. Lol.
Hope you enjoyed my funny random thought of a blog.
