Maybe it’s because Asher is currently in his “oh-God-mommy-don’t-leave-my-line-of-sight-you’re-abandoning-me-you-wicked-woman!” stage, but it is beyond difficult to care for an infant full-time at home AND cook/clean.
And apparently some of you super moms work from home as well? HOW?! It’s beyond difficult to find the time to shower, let alone write a blog post (note: I’m totally writing this post while running the shower water. Don’t you look at me with your “judgey eyes”. My dad is watching Asher, who is sleeping, and I AM taking a shower just as soon as I press publish. THIS IS CALLED MULTITASKING). Now where were we? Oh yes, I was just questioning how these super moms exist?!
Do any of you wish for a time machine, so you can go back to when you were pregnant and tired and slap the shit out of yourself for not getting more done? Cause I know I do. All that organizing time I thought I’d have after the baby was born because “babies sleep a lot”=bullshit. when your kid is sleeping, you’re lucky if you can find the time to feed yourself, let alone sort your file cabinet! Those “brand new newborn days” are literally a blur in my head. I once lost my car keys for two months. TWO MONTHS. You know where they were? Under a couch cushion. HOW DID MY KEYS GET THERE?! I also once fell asleep sitting up on the couch, only to wake up when the baby cried to find myself with a breast exposed and drool down my face. Real classy.
So when I see a mom who somehow manages to keep her home in good order, cooks, stays at home all day with her infant, AND somehow manages simple grooming/maintains her sanity, I’m impressed.
Seriously, what’s your secret?
