Crack. Splat. Sizzle.
THAT is what my brain is like these days. My husband is in a very busy season. He is working 7 days a week all day and into the late night. He is surviving on coffee and sheer determination (me too). I admire him.
Needless to say, when he is busy, I am busy. Very busy. Very tired. Very crabby. I can’t even make fully functioning thoughts most of the day. In fact, I’ve been trying to write this post for the past half an hour and I’ve only gotten this far because
I’m watching tv I can’t keep a rational idea in my sleep deprived head . Daylight savings hasn’t helped either. The kids have adjusted faster than I have. My eyes open and my brain says “GET UP. WE HAVE WORK TO DO”, but my body has “SUN SUN GO AWAY COME AGAIN ANOTHER DAY”.
I don’t know if you know, but kids are needy. *snicker* 3 boys in diapers (don’t even talk to me about my failure to potty train my 3 year old! UGH), 1 crawling and constantly hungry baby, 1 sensory perception disorder kid, 1 homeschooled kindergarten and 0 help.
I’m tired. Scratch that. I’m exhausted. Scratch that. I’m like a car with the low fuel light on practically outta gas.
The silver lining is that this is a great time to lift up my husband to my kids and tell them often about the hard work that he is doing for them and for me. It was precious to hear my kids praying and thanking God for daddy working hard for them. Understanding that daddy is a man who works hard is a good example not only for them, but for their expectations in their future spouses. Instead of moaning and grumbling about how hard it is for me (and it truly is) I tell my hubby thanks for working hard for our family.
But with him unavailable to help with the family, I’m not gonna lie, I have visions of nannies dancing in my head.
A stay at home mom can dream.
