I’m Tired

The top picture is my Sunday afternoon, the bottom is my husband’s. Why can’t us mamas just let go and sleep like our husbands?

I’m tired.

This winter has been a blur. Lots of sicknesses, one after another, never at the same time. Figuring out who is going to take off work (yay for some snow days!), or which parent is going to beg their parents to take our sick kid. The weekends have been loaded with plans. How do three year olds have so many parties? Oh yeah, and work. Report cards, progress monitoring, paperwork, and conferences to name a few.

Did I ever mention that I am also a teacher? I’m tired.

Yes, I’m a full time working mother of two young toddlers. I am also a special education teacher. I love my job. It’s what I always wanted to do. It comes naturally to me. Sometimes when I get home though, I’m exhausted. I’ve made so many little decisions and talked all day that when I finally get to sit down in the car on the way home, I realize just how exhausted my mind is. I just want to sit on the couch and veg out. That doesn’t happen though. I come home to my darling babies, and it’s like I get that second wind. Hugs and kisses! Then it’s time to make dinner. Then upstairs we march to have bath time, then bed routines. I wish I could work part time. Would that make me feel like a better mom?

I’m tired. I never knew how my mom would fall asleep on the couch. Then I became a mom of two. I’ll try to stay up for a little to watch TV. Finally a little alone time for adult television! No Mickey Mouse. I cringe when it’s already on the TV as I turn it on. Then before I know it, I’m out like a light. Ah, now I know how she didn’t make it to bed. I’m tired.

I can’t wait for the warmer spring weather and sunshine. Here’s to getting the kids outside and enjoying the sunnier days ahead! But I’m still tired.

Thank you for reading!
