Bad Blogger

Okay, I have been home for three weeks now and I have been a bad blogger. I thought I would have all sorts of time when I was home with the kids and I would definitely still have time to blog. But, I find myself alone with the kids a not small amount of the week and I haven't had the time to focus on blogging. I am still finding my footing with being a stay at home mommy. It is no easy job and the kids demand my attention a not small amount of the time. Right now I hear them fighting just one room over and I know I should go and break it up... but they have been fighting all day and I am tired of playing referee.

Being home is really hard. Not in the stressful kind of way that work was, but in the frustrating and exhausting way of parenting. Being around kids all day also makes me hungry for adult interaction. The kids were sick all weekend and we had to stay home and I have been home, alone, without Matt, for three days. I am about ready to go crazy. 3 days out of every week I am alone with the kids. A full 72 hours with just me and the kiddos. Usually I plan for us to go out on the weekend, but when they are sick, we are trapped here at home for a very long time. Huh, now I hear Dan playing with the blinds.... I should probably check that out... nope... he stopped... I think.

See, even just writing this short quick post I find myself distracted and unable to really commit to blogging. I will find my groove eventually, I just haven't found it yet. Until then, you will have to satisfy your curiosity about my life by inventing crazy mommy situations that I am most likely finding myself in. Ugh. Dan just hit Nicole. Gotta go.

Now that your home, we should do something one day. Hard thing is I still work mornings and Henry may or may not REALLY need a nap any given day. (If it were up to me, it would be every day, but he thinks he is growing up and doesn't need them. Darn kid.) We should get together sometime though. I just make no promises as to the behavior of my child.

Yeah, being a stay-at-home mom is super hard. But you'll get used to it again and you'll get used to not having daily adult interactions...but you might still miss it a little. But nothing is truly better than raising your children. But adult interaction is why I go to so many mommy groups.
