“I’d like to be the ideal mother, but I’m too busy raising my kids.”- unknown
Some days, I’m a better mother than others. Today would be one of those NOT somedays. I am exhausted. And the only thing I want right now is some silence. Absolute silence to be exact. I’m not sure anything could make me happier at the moment. Ok, maybe winning the lottery would get me all jazzed up, but other than that, I want to hear crickets. And my fan. And that’s it.
*snort* Yeah, right.
When does that ever happen in the life of a mother? Almost never–except in the late hours of night when everyone is in bed. Which is why us mothers are often so tired. We stay up too darn late just to revel in the stillness of those peaceful hours. (Of course, I really shouldn’t speak for others here.)
*sigh* Is it really so much to ask for??? All I want is a comfy chair. Some beloved favorite books. A cozy blanket. Some steaming hot coffee. I don’t think it’s much–but it feels like the world right now.
