I am following on Emmy's coattails, and I am going to participate in this writing prompt from Mama's Losin' it! I have just now decided that, "Mama's Losin' It" will be my stolen...errr...borrowed...creed. I have had a crazy couple of days. Today was craziest of the two. I have been up for nearly 16 hours now, on about 5 hours of sleep. In those 16 hours I think I have spent a total of 4 non collective hours at home. So, without any further ado....
If you give a mom a moment...she might catch her breath.
If she catches her breath, she might be able to think more clearly.
If she can think more clearly, she might remember why she went into the garage in the first place.
If she remembers that she was supposed to be getting the meat out of the freezer, she will also remember that the milk needed to be replaced.
If she remembers the milk needs replacing she will remember that the cereal is low.
If she remembers that the cereal is low she will remember that the dishes haven't been washed since last night.
If she remembers the dishes haven't been washed since last night, she will remember that she is out of paper towels.
If she remembers she is out of paper towels, she will remember that she needs to call for a dentist appointment.
If she remembers to call for a dentist appointment, she will remember that she needs that she needs a moment...a moment to....she will a need a moment to...."Hey, why the heck am I standing in the garage anyway!?"
To all my sisters who have been there and done that! I love you all. On those days when you can't seem to get it together, remember to give yourself a moment...to catch your breath....it's okay to breathe now and then.
