case of the mondays.

This morning is a little strange for me. My husband is off work and I'm completely off my groove. I'm very thankful that he's off, and he can really use an extra day, it's just strange to have him around on a Monday. Him being off sometimes makes me wish that I had a day off, stay at home moms never have a "day off." Some may disagree that everyday is a day off, but that's so not true. I always have laundry to do, dishes in the sink, a kid to supervise, a dog to walk, there's no end. It's worth it though.

I feel like I've been slacking a lot lately, hence the reason for all the time management organization. I'm really trying to get it together before the new baby comes, because I know as soon as that happens everything will go out the window again. Every mom I talk to says the second one is so much easier. I can understand that, with the second kid you pretty much know what to expect, but what do you do with the other kid? It's just a crazy swirl of questions in my head. I guess I'm just going to wing it.

Thanks to all the lovely ladies who commented on my "crafting with kids: drink thermos" you all about made me cry! You said some really sweet things, thank you! Aurora can get on my last nerve sometimes, but she can always make everything alright.

Are you having a case of the Mondays? Just wanted to share a little something I found the other day that made me smile!

Sorry about the random rambling. ^_^ Happy Monday!


  1. I spotted that print yesterday, its so cute! Hats off to you stay-at-home-mamas! My mom was one until my youngest sister (there are 3 of us) was in preschool. I know taking care of my 3 dogs is tough, so I can only imagine how crazy it would be with 3 kids! Oh,wait. I babysit 3 kids. Yep, its pretty crazy sometimes. ;) At least I get to give them back at the end of the day ;)

  2. I love that print! I am not a mother yet but I hate it when people say that being a mom is not a full time job. Seriously I have baby sat enough to know that it most certainly is! I hope you have a great day with your husband and maybe he can give you a day off ;)

  3. It makes me SO mad when people think being a SAHM is 'so easy,' yeah right. You never get a moment to yourself, ever. That right there is enough to make someone go insane!
