I'm Ready For the Kids to Go Back To School

     I wasn't going to post a new blog for today, but I felt the need to do this. Guys- I'm exhausted!

     All day, today, my kids have been yelling and fighting with each other and all I want to do is just write. I want to finish my book and I can't do that. I have to mediate fights. I have to find things for my kids to do so they don't destroy the house or hurt each other. My oldest has been begging me to let him play video games and I so want to let him do it because at least then I would have two kids not fighting with each other because they would be engrossed in their games. But I can't let him do that because he knows that he needs to read at LEAST 30 minutes a day and he won't do that. Correction- he's finally given in because he doesn't want to go to his room.

     I'd love to be able to say that all my days are perfect, but they're not, just like I know that not every mom or dad has a perfect day. This also translates to people who don't have kids. We ALL have obstacles that prevents us from doing things that we want to do or have things that make us feel like we're going crazy.

    I just have to remember that everyday isn't like today and I won't always be so tired. This social media blogging thing has been hard work.

    School starts in just a few weeks and I haven't done much with the kids, they're probably bored out of their minds, too. Maybe we're all ready for school to start.

      For all of you other people out there who are in the same boat or something that gives you a similar feeling, STAY STRONG!

      Can I see your exhausted pics? Share your stories!

So tired! Messy hair, don't care!


  1. I'm still in the first trimester of my first pregnancy. Reading this is making me worry that I'll be even more tired when I have the baby than I am now!

    1. Your body will get used to it! My oldest has ADHD and hasn't had his medicine this summer so he can gain some weight. I've been trying to put more effort into this blog like an 8 hour day job split into sections, so I'm really feeling it. You'll be ok, mama!

      Yesterday was just a week day for me.

  2. Oh, Jo ... you will adjust. Yes, there will be days you will be tired but in the end it will all be worth it ... because .... grandchildren!!! :)

    1. Thanks Cyndi! I've been trying to reply for a couple of minutes, but Ashton started suckering ro my face like a plunger. Oy

About Me

My photo
Hello! My name is Brittany and I'm a writer, obviously. As a stay-at-home mom, there are many things that I have to figure out in order to run a house that appears to be more sane than insane. It's not easy to be a parent and I hope that this blog is able to encourage other moms out there to live life happily and to understand that there can be mishaps along the way, but those mishaps don't define you and anything can be overcome with perseverance and will.

How to Listen So Your Kids Will Talk- A Book Review

I didn't like reading this book... but I like the book.    I know that may sound bizarre or weird, most definitely confusing.  You see, ...
