This is mom reality. There is nothing sacred. No time that is just mine. There are these precious little things that follow me wherever I go that want to be a part of every moment of my life. Nothing could take away their constant enthusiasm to be ever present in even my mundane activities of daily living. They want to witness every breath and be in arms reach with every movement. Although it drives me crazy at times, I can’t help but be thankful for the little stinkers that just love me so much.
These are mommy secrets. These facts of life that only we get to complain/be thankful about. Only mommies can understand why there are puzzle pieces in the bathroom and why there are garlands of toilet paper used as playroom decor. Only mommies know what a beautiful mess mommy reality can be. This is mom reality. Thank you, moms, for understanding.
