Grumpy mommy

As much as I hate to admit it, I’ve become Grumpy Mommy the past few weeks.

So much is on my plate. You know just life in general kinda plate.

Being the children’s taxi, photographer, videographer, stylist, diaper changer, maid, chef, teacher, shoe tier, face wiper, hairstylist, wife, church goer, jewelry designer, styling director for a company and DIY/Mommy blogger and a few different blogs and more.


So with all that going on 7 days a week, where is there even a 1 second moment for myself?

Let me be honest. There isn’t.

I run myself into the ground day after day for everyone else and quite frankly it’s mundane.

I’m the type of person/mommy that if I don’t get some quiet time I will blow my lid.

Everything will stress me out.

Can’t I go to the bathroom in peace?

Is that too much to ask?

It’s not my kids’ fault.

I am not blaming them for my stress.

It’s just that mommy needs a moment.

Just let me pee in peace without a 2 foot little girls running into the bathroom, opening up my cabinet and throwing out all of the sparkly bracelets all over the floor while giggling.

It should be cute right?

But to me, in the moments where I feel like I’m an everyday Cinderella, it gets old.

Picking up the same things every day of my life, washing the clothes over and over and sweeping the food off the hardwood floor can make a girl go crazy.

Yes. the older kids have their own chores, yes my husband helps but I’m in dyer need of some alone time.

Paint my nails, watch the Bachelor and sit my booty on the couch while stuffing my face with chocolate.

Nobody wanting anything from me.

No one yelling, laughing, fighting and making messes.

Quiet time.

It’s better than a vacation in my opinion.

I feel guilty that I even feel this way sometimes.

Not everything is rainbows and unicorns when you have 3 kids.

It’s work, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.

I want to give them my undivided attention more.

I want to hug more and kiss more.

I know I can’t be the only mommy that needs quiet time.

So, you see, I haven’t had quiet time in a long time.

That is why I am Grumpy Mommy.
