Girl Scout Leader? No!

My child has the energy of a pro-athlete. I have tried all week to keep up, but am exhausted. I realized I better change my eating habits, and start Zumba to be able to hang with my kids for the summer.

First thing this morning, the kids say,”what are we doing today?”. My first thought is “do I look like a Girl Scout troop leader?”. My kids are old enough to entertain themselves.

My children do not even do chores. I don’t think the kids know where anything in the house is located! How is it that a mother knows where every single thing is in the home? It’s as if we have some sort of built-in homing device to find misc. items. For example, how do I know where all my husband’s tools are located?

How many times per day do you hear, “Mom, where are my….?” I do not know how God knew that all mothers would need the ability to find the missing shoe. There always seems to be a missing shoe. I thank my Dog for carrying off one shoe each day!

Motherhood is the best adventure in life. I need to get in way better shape to enjoy it. Mothers also worry too much. What a waste of energy? I worry about everything I cannot change!

I am exhausted just thinking about trying to keep up with my pro-athlete child today. I really want to watch a good Quentin Tarantino movie and eat chips. Oh well, need to get that idea out of my head. Maybe someday my child will love mob movies too.

Happy Saturday!

    I know what you mean! The other day I came home from work and all I wanted to do was lay on the couch and watch TV…then I heard…”Mom, whats for dinner?” Crap! These kids want to eat today??? I just made dinner yesterday for them…It’s exhausting!

      Ha ha yea, I just started watching a show and my daughter brought up the laptop and said she needed help getting a PowerPoint presentation done ASAP for school. Crap, it’s Saturday and raining. Just want to watch a movie! Ha ha. That’s funny what us mothers think secretly. The food comment- that’s hilarious. My dog and cat need to learn how to cook. My animals do no chores! They could at least learn to make grilled cheese! Ha ha.
