No trophies for me...

I certainly won't be getting 'Mother of the Year' this year.

One of Hunter's friend's moms (what a mouthful!) asked if I was up for that title and that's why I was sewing costumes and baking cake pops. If only she knew.

The truth is today I have been the worst mom. All day I've had the Mean Reds. You know, when you aren't fit to be around other humans. Especially tiny ones.

I'm sure it is a direct result of being up all night with the baby and then up at half six for good. Hunter goes back to school tomorrow so he's been home to drive me batty and, of course, Scarlett has been whiny all day since she was up, too. But then I have no idea what her problem is since she's had two good naps today. I should've been the one whining. Instead I did a lot of shouting. Hunter doesn't really hear things until they are shouted at least twice.

Then DH came home and told me to 'get over it' when I said it had been a bad day. He said everyone (meaning him) had a bad day. What he doesn't realise, though, is that before he even got home he had clocked out. He came home, put on his pj's, and parked on the couch. I was still folding clothes, waiting on Hunter (and him) to finish eating so I could clean up, and trying to get the baby to settle down for bed.

Now I have three articles to write. Yep. I'm still on the clock. DH seems to think being on maternity leave means I eat bon bons and watch TV all day. He also thinks I write these articles because I love it. In reality I hate writing nonfiction, but we need the money.

At the rate I'm going I won't finish 'work' until around midnight... Which should be just about the time the baby wakes back up and I clock in again.

So, yeah, I don't even think I'm nominated for MOTY this year.


  1. I remember those days. No sleep is no fun. Of course then they get old enough to make you lose sleep because they're out and about late at night. :)

    I couldn't access your Blogger profile from your comment on my blog. I got here by following your link from NaNo. I don't know what the issue is, but I thought you'd like to know (it said your profile wasn't available)

    1. I am so tired. Still. But they are worth it.

      I'll have a look at my Blogger account to see what the deal is, but I'm glad you got here!
