little reminders

I am not wired to be a housewife.

Mommy-- yes
Keeper of my home-- no

I've been so busy lately with "tasks." You name it, I've been doing it. Laundry, vacuuming, painting, cleaning, scrubbing, ironing, cooking, baking, etc. AND OF COURSE, changing diapers. I'm so worn out.

Well, tonight was it seemed to peak so high that I was about to blow. Very tired, very moody. Hubby was in the living room doing his thing, i was in the laundry room doing my thing. I hear the pitter-patter of little feet... Erica runs up to me and gives me a kiss.

Awe, how cute! Then, she runs to give Andrew a kiss. Then she runs back to me to give me a kiss. Back and forth.

Its one of those little reminders as to why I'm a SAHM.

toni-- I agree. I think in some small way they do realize when we need a little lovin'

smalltown rn-- you know, I DO try to savor & enjoy my coffee... but its been such a long long time since i've finished a whole cup

crazy working mom- I'm glad you liked the story.

Another quick comment-- my sister [abigail s] thought it was hillarious that I said "keeper of my home- no." She's seen my house; she knows what its like
