OnSugar Blog: A Supermama Rant

Sometimes a mama needs to vent and Grafix does exactly that. Super-mama? My rant for the day... comes from the Grafix On Sugar blog at OnSugar.

How much can actually get done in a day? hmmmm? Let me answer that....A LOT! Today, I woke up, went for a lengthy walk with the boys (this included some grocery shopping), visited a neighbor, had lunch, played in the backyard, napped and completed the day with laundry (3 loads), folding, washing the floors, vacuuming and washing some toilets! Did I mention the million phone calls and the dozens of diapers? I know that the above was a complete run-on sentence but Grrr! We, as mothers, must be genetically programmed to fit as much as possible into a day or we will not be satisfied. If I didn't do half of this I would feel incomplete at the end of the day and by doing it all, I think I give myself a little self worth.

Even as I sit here typing, I'm still waiting for another load of laundry to complete and will not sleep until maybe 11:00 or so, and even then I will be thinking and planning out my day for tomorrow. Gone are the days when I would be able to go to bed at 4 and wake up for 7 without a care in the world....at least those 3 hours sleep were "real" sleep! It still amazes me how my husband can just plop his head on the pillow and "voila" he's asleep within seconds and doesn't even twitch when baby Neigh wakes up....ah to be a man! lol

It's not all women that are this way though, and not all men are simplified beings (not just my husband either) lol. But one thing is for sure, I became this way after I had my children.

I think tomorrow I'm going to wear a red cape and zip through my daily duties like a superhero.....because that is what I am....that's what we all are!

five of your tasks are going for a walk, visiting a neighbor, having lunch, taking a nap and playing in the backyard. many of us have to fit in these chores on the weekends.

If you're up and going from the early am to the late pm, it doesn't really matter what type of work it is, it's still going to be tiring.

I'm with runningesq. If the hardest thing you had to do was some housework, I'm not coming to the pity party. ;)

Um, if you can fit a nap and a visit to your neighbor into your day, it's really not that busy.

You go girl! I am a mother to a 7-month old and she's the coolest kid ever. So when I see other mothers wíth 2 or 3 kids running around, screaming I always wonder how they do it. The only explanation I got is, that they must be Superwomen!
