Thanks... I needed to read this.
Home with my 3 little kids now, the two older ones are running in circles like crazy (but happy) people... Baby has just fallen asleep in my arms.
Only 3 hours of sleep last night since the baby has a stuffy nose and isn't sleeping well as a result. I'm exhausted.
Husband is volunteering at church ...so he is gone for 6 hours this morning. I'm too tired to get kids and self out to church so we are just hanging
out here at home. I'm fighting the feeling of being annoyed with him for being gone. Couldn't someone else volunteer this morning?
In all this chaos and mess, I had a moment of feeling a bit sorry for myself. I hate pity parades and whining. I don't let my kids do it, so I
really can't either! But... Mornings like this it feels like no one cares how exhausted I am. I feel frazzled to the core. I feel like I could fall
apart at any moment.
As my sweet baby fell asleep in my arms, I took a moment to check out ATS this morning and saw this thread.
Strangely, it made me feel a little better.
. Thanks. Thanks for taking the time to post this. I hope my kids will remember me for the love and
laughter and I hope I'm hiding my total exhaustion successfully.
Ok... Gotta get back to the older two. It's gotten strangely quiet. Always a sign of shenanigans.
