It was about 6:49 am. When I’d finally made up my mind. I was going to make the most of my day. Sometimes it feels like I don’t take a Saturday as I should but o’ I made the most of it today.
I thought this is nearly impossible to do with children ages nine, seven and five. At first, the younger started- “mommy I’m hungry” That’s when I asked her if she wanted to fast like Jesus but when she started to cry.
I knew neither of us was Jesus. So I got up made breakfast for everybody and jumped back in bed.
Something I rarely ever do.
That’s when it hit me like a wall tumbling down. Mommies can never have a day off. So–o-o I gathered the children and demanded that I was shutting down for the day.
If you’re hungry eat crackers and drink plenty of water. Watch your cartoons and I’m laying down.
Little did I know, they’d be fighting like cats and dogs- over whose watching what? And their favorite spot on the sofa. Blah Blah Blah. Mommy, mommy this and that. I wanted to scream.
And so I did.
You know what – that did it!
Everybody back in bed.
Let’s start over, we need a do-over ASAP.
Needless to say, while the children slept, I tossed and turn. I roughly got about 2 and half hours tops between breakfast and lunch.
Hey! Life happens and there’s work to be done.
P.S. At least I had my tea this time…signing off your Kindness sister Krissy Mosley
don’t judge I’m a work in progress…
