Found someones basketball that was left behind and is showing off to some girls on the swings that he can pick it up.
Being extra cute.
Taking the basketball over to the girls as a gift offering for their friendship.
Trying to get into peoples yards.
Judah had a mini meltdown during his walk so I took him inside for lunch, he started snotting up while he was eating his lunch and he was in obvious protest to the world around him. Nothing was making him happy so after I knew he had enough to eat I put him down. Start cleaning up lunch and I hear him getting into things. He found my hidden stash of yarn, a roll of paper towels, left over puffs and decided to have a mini "Judah tornado" thru my living room that I just cleaned. Normally I don't mind, just chalk it up to having a baby. But my cell phone is going off with texts from my husband telling me he is not sure when he can come home tonight.
Then I just want to cancel. I know game night would be fun for us, but honestly what do you do when your home feels like its in a constant mess, my husband has been working so many hours he is exhausted when he comes home and you have to keep canceling things like finishing up your root canal and your sons 1 year check up because of all the hours your husband is working.
I feel like I am doing something wrong, their must be some way moms are able to manage all of this. That they can get their home super clean, keep it clean, getting time away from their kids (I still haven't had a break....I'm starting to really feel it) and making sure their child doesn't have an afternoon of meltdowns and turning the house upside-down so they don't cancel all the time on friends. I feel like I am always canceling on someone and I know it would be nice to hang out with adults so I am not constantly talking to a child.
What do you do? How do you manage to get time away, or go on appointments during the day (like the dentist) or keep your house clean. I know I am focusing allot on keeping the house clean, I feel like I can not think clearly when the house is so messy.
