And your sanity.
We are on day five of me at home with my kids. I don’t have anyone reliable to watch them when they are out of school for the holidays (there is entirely too much time off of school nowadays if you ask me 😉) so their father and I split the time. Currently, it is my turn. Tomorrow I get to go back to work for a few days.
Yippie! (You didn’t hear me say that…)
Stay at home moms, I don’t know how you do it day after day, week after week, month after month. Honestly, I am not as strong as you are. I am beginning to think I look pretty sexy in sweats. That’s right. Not to mention the fact that all of the cookies I have baked have snuck off to hide somewhere… I couldn’t possibly have eaten all of them. AND I am talking to rising bread dough as an equal.
All of this has convinced me that I am a much better parent in smaller doses. I had suspected this, but in the past my kids still napped.
Now they don’t.
I say all of this to say that if you hang with your kids all day every day and still like them and yourself, you have my respect. I send you a virtual fist bump of solidarity.
Meanwhile, I am going to quietly sneak off to pack my work bag for tomorrow morning so as not to draw the attention of the angry hoards demanding that I fold yet another origami frog.
Woohoo! (You didn’t hear me say that…)
