Whew! I’m exhausted!

Okay, so I’m not so exhausted today, but really I have been a lot.  I have been taking part in an exercise study.  I’m out of the house every morning by 7:30 to spend a half hour on a stationary bike and back in time for the Rocket Scientist to get to work.  Then I inhale something for breakfast, bundle up the kiddies and we rush out the door to catch the bus to whichever playgroup is scheduled that morning.  Then we run home, have some lunch, play trains for a bit while ZuZu bounces in her activity chair and then I take Doodle upstairs for his nap.  As soon as both are fed and sleeping I collapse onto the couch and think about blogging or working on my Aunt’s website while drooling in front of the tv and by the time I actually get my limbs to respond to commands once more, ZuZu is wanting to be fed again and Doodle has woken up and it’s time to start thinking about supper and half the time I don’t actually get around to making until the Rocket Scientist is home and has taken over the small ones.  Then it’s time to eat, put the kids to bed, hopefully give at least one of them a bath, and then I get to collapse on the couch again.  This time to drool on my husband while we try to get some quality time in which looks more like watching tv and playing on our iphones while we think of all the things we really should be doing.

I really don’t know how these other moms do it.

  1. Aww, poor thing! Do you have a permanent crust on your cheek from all the drooling? 🙂

    And you know what, those other moms? They’re on crazy caffiene. Or they drink. Or they pay people to watch the kids. Or they’re just bad moms who ignore their kids instead of love on them. Yes that’s it, they’re bad, bad moms. You’re the good one. 🙂

    Oh, and all that stuff they get done? They lie. They drool in front of the TV too.

    Love you!

  2. That all sounds very familiar! A couple of my friends without kids sometimes borrow Joanna, and after a few hours are completely exhausted, and they don’t know how I cope with my kids all day!

  3. I have NO idea how you moms with multiples do it!! you have two kids and you actually get out of the house every day AND make dinner! i consider myself successful if i’ve gotten dressed before noon. you are a fabulous mum!!
