A must read
I’m still getting the hang of this SAHM thing, and being broken in by two two year olds and a baby is pushing me to my very limit of mental and physical exhaustion. I’m hungry most of the time, thirsty a lot, I need to pee twice as many times as I actually do in a day, but I wouldn’t trade a moment of it for any other way of life. So to get through it I have been researching the terrible twos and looking for tips from seasoned SAHMs. I found this fantastic article about how the mind of a two year old works, it won’t take away all the chaos that is everyday but it helps. And from those moms who have it down to a science I’ve found I am a lot like the set out there who would rather do a puzzle with my kids than reorganize the toys, the kids don’t care if they are organized. I do envy the Self proclaimed OCD moms who clear the sink and the floor every night before bed, how nice to wake up to a clutter free start to the day, oh well guess I’ll never know what that’s like. And I don’t care if the bath toys sit in the bottom of the tub until tomorrows bath. The Washington Post published this story that gives a dose of reality to what a day in the life of a SAHM is all about. The line that hit home to me, “I’d rather not be that mom who ignores our kids, and myself, because I’m so busy worrying about what the neighbors might think of our messy house.”
Just for the record, my husband is pretty laid back about the kid clutter during the week, it’s me who has the though time deciding weather to organize the tornado or just play birthday party for the 18th time.
We had a photographer come take some family portraits of us. I’m really happy with how they turned out. I’ll share more of the photos when I get the CD but I yes one as our new image on top baby blogs.
