Oh Crap! Realization of the Day … Some Moms

I’ve realized I might not embrace mommyhood as much as I thought. I love being a mom, and I love the time—MOST of the time—I spend with my kids. And, I, like many other friends of mine, cherish the time when the kids are in school. But, today, one of my friends—whose children are NOT in college--posted this:

Can't wait for Christmas break to have my kids home all day again!”

What? Did I read that right? Most everyone else, including me, says, “Ugh. What am I going to do with my kids all day, every day, for two weeks?”

Of course, she was one of the sweetest people I knew in college, but still! Way to make me feel like a bad mom. Hahaha! Just kidding … kind of.

I guess I should look at the extra time as a bonus. And, realistically, I do love the days it is just the kids and I, especially now that the twins have school 4 mornings/week. Those Fridays are special days for us. Though, when full day turns into full days, my patience level gets lower and lower and that is when I start counting the days until school starts again. I guess some moms just have it. Sadly, I’m not some mom.
