I have tried to spend my day updating my blog while catering to 3 very bossy, very cute, very active little people. I realized today that the one page on my blog that could very well be neglected is my ‘A Women’ page. It seems that all the folklore about how a mom with little kids loses herself and perhaps some of her womanhood is actually true. I managed to shower today, but couldn’t get time to brush my hair, so its up in its standard bun position, maybe I can brush it tomorrow? I got out of my mommy in-house outfit to change into my mommy running out of the house outfit because we needed apple sauce, so that counts as a costume change. I spend a tremendous amount of time on my hands and knees, and none of it benefited my poor hubby, it was all in an attempt to keep the floor clean after 3 meals and daily snacks. I cleaned puke of the couch and poo of the kitchen floor, yes my sweet little baby girl can get her diaper off and does as she pleases while I am occupied with one of the other two. I made a yummy dinner, nothing fancy, but all enjoyed. I folded laundry, did dishes, set up arts and crafts, wrestled kids on the change table, did tub time, potty time for all 3, brushed their teeth, held them when they were crying, and made sure that they were all tucked in and sleeping for the night. So am I a mom or a women?
Obviously I am both, but it is evident that my days are consumed by the mom in me, and I have to make an effort to remember to cater just a little to the WOMEN in me…..
