Things I Know – The ‘2 Arms Aren’t Enough’ Edition!
It’s time for another Things I know link up with Singular Insanity!
This week I know that 2 arms just aren’t enough and if I could sprout some more I certainly would, no matter how ridiculous I’d look.
I know that no matter how hard I try, I cannot tie shoelaces or do ponytails whilst I breastfeed a baby. It simply can’t be done. I move my arms to do something else and Elijah unattaches and carries on like a pork chop. Not real handy when feed time usually runs into get ready for school time….
I know that as soon as I start a job around the house, I will get interrupted. For sure. Squarking baby, fighting children, knock at the door, and so on. I used to just think it was my own family that was against me getting anything done, but it turns out it’s the entire universe instead.
I know that I am quite good at multitasking, but it would be awesome to not have to, just for one day. While I am growing extra arms, I may as well grow an extra brain because the one I have is struggling to remember everything it’s expected to at the moment.
I know that undertaking The Organised Housewife’s 20 Days To A Clean & Organised Home Challenge is satisfying and exhausting all at the same time. I could do with some extra arms for this one too…
I know that time is precious and these moments wont last forever but the work I am doing now is going towards making our lives easier and more comfortable in the future so it’s a tricky situation to juggle. On top of that I think I am suffering from a massive case of Mother Guilt….I feel like I need to do a bit of this and a bit of that for each and every one of my family, and not just sit with the baby all day. It’s a big job, but it’s mine.
Lastly, and this has little to do with arms except for the one I will extend and stick my rude finger up with, but I know that my simple expectations of some people have been too high. Simple things that I have always expected and assumed of certain people will never be realised. I’m disappointed that it has come to low, petty, unprovoked behaviour, but this is pretty much the last straw for me.
I also know that was a little cryptic but hell, I hope they get the message loud and clear, if you know what I mean!!
And that’s what I know this week.
