So, I wrote about "mommy guilt" and now I'll write briefly about what I have termed, "mommy exhaustion." Who knows? It MAY be a real thing, but I'm too tired to look it up! ;)
This evening I was catching up with a friend on the phone and she asked if I was totally and completely in love with N and if I couldn't get enough. And of course I'm totally in love! Especially when you've waited awhile for the gift of motherhood. But there are times where I'm totally exhausted and I just wish he would be as tired as I am at the appropriate time. :) Like at 8am when I want to go back to sleep. :) And sometimes I just wonder WHY in the world will he not stop crying?! And there are times I wish I could just leave the house on a whim or even take a nap on a whim! And N is a VERY good baby!
This kind of makes me feel like a "bad mom" to admit this, but my goal on this blog is openness and realness. Being a mom is such a blessing and is super fun! But, it's a challenge! And if anyone says otherwise, I've got to wonder if they've got a "wonder child," or if they're just not telling the truth!
Anyway, we are doing well. We've been on several trips this summer (2/3 for weddings), which have been super fun! But, since they've all been in the month of July and involved driving until 2-4am at night to keep N on his sleep schedule, it's no wonder we're so tired! Add in staying up until 11pm every night to catch all of the Olympic coverage, and you get "mommy exhaustion." :)
Just 11 more days until I return to school!! Ahhhhh!!
