SUPERWOMAN- Where does she live?
There are days I feel like I am caught in the middle of a tornado! I question whether my kids are becoming ungrateful and inconsiderate brats? I feel no matter what they receive when they receive it or how they receive it – it is never ENOUGH! Well, guess what I’ve had ENOUGH of living with snot-nosed brats who whine endlessly about themselves, for themselves, with themselves, UGH! Did I ever act like this as a child? I would pay my parents for their pain and suffering if this is how I acted as a child. What in the world?
I’m standing on my chair proclaiming I am not SUPERWOMAN! Yes, I get tired of listening to the whining, the complaining about dinner, no snacks they like or not enough snacks. Yes, I get tired of the bickering and the fact that still at their ages I have to banish both to their rooms. Yes, I’m tired of the pig styes they call ” their rooms” . I no longer resort to cleaning up their rooms or bathroom. The reverse psychology seems to work after one or both are tired of the mess.
The things I do to cope with some of the hectic days. There are days when I feel really petty. Yes, I hide my favorite snacks so I can thoroughly enjoy without interruption or the possibility of sharing. Yes, I know really PETTY! When I just need a few minutes to myself before the evening routine I lock my door for a little peace and quiet. A late night shower before bed is the best remedy for a long day. I swear there is something about water that just soothes the mind and body. There is no space or reality in being a SUPERWOMAN! The best thing you can do as a mom is being realistic on the fact that you need to decompress and there are only 24 hours in a day.
If you can’t get it done there is always tomorrow and the word NO!
