In my napsack stash
If you’re a mom, and this thought hasn’t flitted through your mind ONCE I might call you a liar…maybe.
But, I’m being honest. This thought has gone through my mind and more so, just recently.
That sounds so, bad. I mean, it’s like sacrilege to all stay-at-home-moms. But, I told you that I’m being honest so, just hear me out and then forget everything I’ve written.
My house irritates me when it gets messy. It’s nothing a good two hour cleaning can’t handle but still. My mood takes a dip south and I start snapping at people. For those who don’t know, I make these cute PUnk MOnkeys and they take up a lot of my time. With kids, it takes me close to three days to make one. Without kids and uninterrupted. About three hours. How do I know that? I had D help me out. I told him to watch the kids while I timed myself. Warp speed folks. Warp speed.
POW. Then I was overwhelmed with this sneaky thought, what if I had someone to follow my kids around and pick up their messes? Oh, heavenly days.
Ok, so, maybe what I really want isn’t a nanny but a human-picker-upper. That’s sounds better. I love my babies, but I need more hours in my day. Less cleaning and more stitching.
