I. Am. Tired.

I’ve been pretty much up since 3:30. The baby has pink eye and so was not sleeping great. I can’t imagine how he got it. I’m sure it has nothing to do with his habit of sneaking into the bathroom and splashing in the toilet. 🤦🏻‍♀️

There is so much that needs to be done today. Everywhere I look, there is something (or ten somethings). The dining room floor especially needs mopped. Again. Toddlers are such messy eaters!

But I’m just so exhausted! I don’t want to do anything today. Well, at least not any work. Curling up with my favorite tv show or a good book sounds nice. Ordering pizza for lunch sounds heavenly. Skipping paying for this week’s groceries so I can hire a maid is a fantasy but I’d like to fantasize about it a little bit...Sigh...

I’m not trying to make you feel sorry for me. I know I have a fantastic life and am so blessed. Nothing I've mentioned so far is anything that you haven't dealt with yourself. You are probably better at it than me. You probably actually washed your dishes this morning. 

Or maybe you are having a day like me, when you are just plain and simply exhausted. And that's ok.

Because mama's need down days. Days when you catch up on rest. When you actually nap when the baby is napping. When you let the big kids watch a movie so the house is quiet for a while. When dinner is cold cuts, chips and salsa, and a veggie tray (or hubby makes it). 

You can't do it all every day. You can't be it all every day. Take a break, mama!

I'll mop that floor tomorrow. One more day wont hurt us.

Much love,
