It's also a little bit insane for me to think that I will get done every day everything that needs to get done. The problem is that I am a Mom and I have a full-time job outside the house in addition to the Mom thing and even when I was only working for pay part-time, there were still not enough hours in the day and there is no way now that I am gone for 10-11 hours each day that I can get anything done. Thus the chore chart. But the problem is that no one pays attention to the chore chart except me. So I am still the only one doing chores, except for Husband. He came home on time today, so he did his chore and now is picking up Child 2 from clarinet lessons so I am left alone to stress about who is not doing the laundry and why Child 3 still hasn't finished her math after working on it for hours.
Is there a Mom on this planet who isn't stressed? If so, could she come give me lessons? And I should clarify here that her lack of stress should not be due to having three nannies and a personal chef and a driver, etc. Nor should it involve chemical suppression of the stress. Or lots of chocolate. But if you're out there, give me a call because I would like to figure out how you do it. Husband says just leave the worrying to him, but we all know that will not work because he will not worry and then how will anyone remember that Child 3 has a dentist appointment tomorrow and I need to go paint sets for Child 3's Christmas play?
This invisible bike helmet is better than a brownie. More fashionable too. And no, it's not her headband.
