Can I just say that life feels like it’s actually getting busier somehow?
I think a lot of moms are feeling this way.
It’s like pulling a triple shift.
We’re not running kids here there and everywhere so that part has slowed down but working from home, staying on top of everything your kids are doing in their own ‘new normal’, and trying to ‘slow down’ to enjoy the simple things like everyone else on social media is talking about is kinda nuts.
Whoever said “all we have to do is sit on the couch and stay home” clearly doesn’t have kids and work from home lol. That would be easy….this is not!
Yes I coloured in a colouring book with my son yesterday while his other 2 brothers napped (which is a total fluke), but the whole time I was fighting the urge to get up and be ‘more productive’ which is kinda terrible you know?
I had to force my butt to stay in that chair….and it was wonderful but I forced myself...are you with me on this?
A lot of us work from home (whether that’s new for you or not) and we still have houses to run (which are full of tornados...I mean kids all day now), and we’re somehow still in the cycle of trying to please everyone around us.
It’s not easy, so without sounding ungrateful for the ‘slowdown’ can we just talk about what we are grateful for?
I am grateful that my family and I are safe.
I am grateful that Reece has a secure job and that I work from home.
I am grateful that I live in a country where we have so much space so we can still go enjoy it outside (when it’s not -100 and snowing lol).
I am grateful that I’m old enough to know that this too shall pass.
What are you grateful for?
