Is it just me (if not, please lie and say no for solidarity’s sake) or do any other moms go to bed at night wondering exactly what they accomplished that day? All I know is that the house is a wreck, the dishes are piled high, 37 loads of laundry need folding, and I’m falling into bed at 11pm (or midnight… okay, 3am) completely exhausted. WHAT HAVE I DONE ALL DAY?
It’s been a tough week at my house. All of the above and then some. On the plus side, I’ve learned that 1 cup of coffee = 1 hour of sleep… so there’s some helpful information for you (I had five cups of coffee yesterday, so I’ll let you do the math on how much sleep i got).
Well, dear mamas, i’ll let you in on a little pep talk I’m about to give myself.
You’re doing great.
What you’re doing matters.
It’s okay to feed your kids non-organic cheetos for lunch and nothing else.
He is enough… therefore, you are enough.
It’s okay to turn on Curious George for 2 hours so you can take a nap.
You’re a good mama.
Take a deep breath and keep trucking on, sweet friend… you’re not alone. ❤
…and on that note, here’s a picture of my kitchen floor covered in sprinkles. I’ll spare you a picture of the stack of napkins in each of the bathrooms because we’ve been without toilet paper for a full 24 hours since I forgot to put it on my grocery list and can’t bear the thought of dragging the kids to the store for only one thing.
