My four month old woke me up at 3am, and again at 6am. At 6, I noticed someone had messaged me that I hadn’t talked to in a long time. It was a great conversation!
I decided since I was up, I would start a load of laundry. I laid back down and crashed for a couple hours until my kids woke me up. My four year old had been climbing, and fell! My 3 year old came to wake me up. Luckily nobody was hurt.
I decided I needed to fix the piece of furniture that she fell off of, so I went downstairs to try and find the tools needed. As I was looking for the tools, my 2 year old walked off with things he wasn’t supposed to be touching. Then my 3 year old got into the fridge.
I went upstairs to try and get a break, and the next thing I saw was my 2 year old who had stuck his hand in his poopy diaper. I got him changed, then my 4 year old brought me an empty essential oil container. I had just bought it, and it was full! My 3 year old decided to empty the entire bottle onto a small box we had. On a positive note, it was a stress blend, and the box will act as a reed diffuser until the scent fades!
I’m only halfway through my day, and I’m exhausted!
My 4 month old will need to eat soon, then I have to get some more laundry done, do the dishes, and start dinner before my husband gets home so he can start the bedtime routine.
Then I’ll head off to work, where I’m cleaning up after other kids’ messes. I’ll get home just before it’s time to go to bed, then the madness starts over again tomorrow.
There is never enough time in the day to get done what I would like to do. I have this huge to do list constantly in the back of my mind.
I guess it’s time to simplify!
