Today I want to know some things about how you run your life as a mom. Particularly, how do you coordinate showering and getting ready, as well as making your bed? I mean, I get the general point. But how do YOU, as a mother of young children, who are not self sufficient enough to entertain themselves while you bathe/fix hair/makeup, how do you do it? What are they doing? When are you doing this?
Ahh, the bed making. It bothers me when it's all scromply covers tossed about. Deeply. But, what to do? Make it at 2:00 while they nap? I feel like nap time (for me) is the time I'm folding laundry (another thing I want to know-when do you do it?), washing up dishes from the day, making the bed, taking a shower, or insert one of the other 309404 things moms need to get done. I'd like to sit and read blogs, blog, read a book, or do something enjoyable. Not feel like a maid. But, maybe this is life right now? Do you do all of this during naps?
So please, moms of all ages with kids of all ages. Tell me: when do you do the following things?
*Shower/get ready (Ugh, please don't tell me you rise at 5:00 to get ready.)
*Laundry-not the washing/drying, but the folding and putting away
Those things listed above? That doesn't even count the other things like cleaning, wrapping presents, addressing Christmas cards, spending time with husband, or general relaxation. There's only so much time you have at night after they're asleep. And I'm beat by then!
And, because I feel like we need a picture.....
Not me. I promise. Good Lord.
Also, google 'bedraggled moms images' and see what comes up. NOT EVEN CLOSE.
