It’s been a long week. I haven’t seen a lot of my husband. Lots of kids not sleeping. I don’t know about you, but I NEED quiet time in the middle of the day to be a good mommy. When I don’t get at least 20 minutes when they are both sleeping I go crazy. I can’t run from 8am-10pm (which is when the kiddies in this camp seem to turn in for the night) and stay sane without a few minutes to myself. My husband’s been working a 21 day stretch without a day off & I am tired. & seemingly getting nothing done but feeding, entertaining, cooking, cleaning & breathing. All important, but thankless. Mostly.
I’ve turned to technology to distract myself from my day a little too often. Last week I stumbled upon this article, How to Miss a Childhood, & it really hit me. So I, once again, took the reminder to heart and am trying to do better about putting my phone down & just enjoying my littles. It’s not always easy.
But I am trying. :)
