Here’s a news flash: I’m tired.
No, seriously. I am really, REALLY tired.
Maybe there is something wrong with me, or maybe all mothers feel like this, but, most days, all I really want is a nap.
That’s actually my entire goal for the day. A NAP.
My kids are not on board with this. They want me to be awake and doing mom stuff. You know, like serving them.
Still, whenever I can, I go to my room and try to take a nap. I do not need the house to be quiet for this. I can sleep through the noise. I don’t even have to close the bedroom door.
But unfortunately, the kids still want stuff.
Some of the things they want I can do without much trouble. You’d be surprised what I can accomplish while lying down with my eyes closed.
Sometimes they don’t really want me to do anything at all; they just want to pretend to have informed me of things they’re not too keen to talk about.
But sometimes, they simply WILL NOT be ignored.
Sigh. I guess I’ll get up and do some mom stuff.
