As I was growing up my mum frequently uttered the words ‘I quit!’, to which my reply was you can’t just quit!
Today I find myself uttering those same words, I am starting to say the things I never thought I would!
There are a few reasons why I feel like this today, it is the reality of Motherhood with out the fairy dust & sparkly shine of the happy times.
I wish I was the one always asking what was for dinner. Having someone care what I like & cook for me.
Know what was to be served, smelt it cooking, yet when it is served up, changed my mind. Thinking that I have my own live in chef to suit my desires and tastes.
I wish I could, even though endlessly asked to put my clothes in the wash baskets, could spread out my outfit from the front door, right through to the bathroom.
Oh yeah ensuring that my socks are taken off at different ends of the house, making that sock pairing even more challenging. E has a thing about taking her socks off.
I wish I could endlessly complain about how other people don’t have to do things or wear their hair in a pony tail at school.
I wish that I could wait till the numerous time’s of being asked to do something before it really needed to be done.
Oh yeah….. And bed time… I wish firstly that I was TOLD to go to bed early as I wouldn’t argue. But playing up at bed seems to be so much fun. Then don’t forget it is my given right to be as grumpy as i want in the morning as I am so tired and so I will make dressed or getting out of the door early in the morning hard work.
And don’t go there about the telly…. Firstly I would like to just watch one entire show that I chose…. But in this house it seems It is Nick Jr or nothing else.
Manners, I wish I didn’t have to constantly tell you to say please and thank you, I wish I could get away with just being rude!
So yes tonight my patience is thin. My soft calm voice got angry but neither mattered…
So time out in my room for me….
So tomorrow I am taking off my Mary Poppins rosy hat and resigning.
I am sure after a really nice sleep…. Oh yes and don’t even THINK of sneaking into my bed in the morning and giving me the fright of my life when I will wake up…. That I will retract this… But for today I am done…. This is it, I am finished……
My mummy hat is off….
I know.. what a mess.. but a cute mess!
