Mommy time is night time…
…or better said the time when everyone is asleep besides herself.
When to relax and finally have just a little “Me” time?
When nobody wants something from me. When no child is tired or cranky or needs mommy. When my husband is completely busy like now on the phone with his Libyan guys or if he sleeps next to our son.
Time for me and instead of actually DOING something I’m laying next to a snoring toddler in a half dark bedroom and I type. I type my thoughts out of my brain and onto this blog (which started as a combined yoga/relationship/life wisdom blog and feels now like a one in a million mom blog).
I have so many things I would long to do but right here right now I’m too lazy to go back to the living room even if I know there’s some nicely prepared fruit on the table and that means what?
I am exhausted and tired.
Moms are sometimes exhausted and tired and yes, that’s ok!
Even more, it has to be like that!
I mean, seriously, let a man do what we accomplish day in and day out and hear what he will say.
I don’t doubt that there are some men out there who are able to handle our job perfectly, absolutely! But the focus lays on ‘some’. The majority will break down latest on the morning of day two (if not already after a messy day one).
Did I just mention my husband?
He came in and told me that he ate ALL the fruit while being on the phone and now he cuts a nectarine for me and I eat it in bed 😊
We need to be pampered once in a while!
People water plants day by day but they forget their spouses.
If your wife is having a warm dinner ready for you EACH evening, show her that you appreciate it – we need these things like plants need water!
I want to do some yoga since weeks and what am I doing instead?
Laying in bed eating nectarines. And should I tell you something? That’s OK! My muscles are sore anyway because I went the past two days with the bicycle to the kindergarten and as always last minute, so I simply deserve this moment now because I do enough!
I run through my life, from kindergarten to work, from work to kindergarten, from kindergarten to household to cooking to grocery shopping to playtime in between all of this and to being a wife in the evening when our son sleeps.
Isn’t that schizophrenia?
I understand each and every single mom out there who is about to shout a loud Stop once in a while.
We are no machines and we need time to be just ourself.
At least a few minutes. Please.
I go ahead and eat my nectarines now and just take this moment as a “that’s exactly what I need right now ” moment!
Take care of yourself my dear moms – you all are doing a fantastic job!
