Everything to Everyone

Do you ever feel like that?

I don't know if it is because I am a stay at home mum and everything at home falls back to me, however I suspect not.  With three children and a husband with a very demanding job I do feel like I am everything to everyone.

It is exhausting.  I'm exhausted.

Is that just Motherhood?  I suspect so.  It is the most rewarding experience but also the hardest.

We are mothers, wives, cooks, cleaners, bookkeepers, laundresses, nurses, teachers, referrers, the list goes on.

So, I need a break.  I am taking myself and my two sons off to visit my mum (who else do you turn to when life gets a bit to much!).  My husband and my daughter will no doubt have a lovely few days to themselves eating junk food and watching movies.  It is a win win situation.



  1. yes I am having one of those days too. My two year old just drew all over the new cupboards while my 8 year old is having a tantrum.Hopefully I can get some sewing time in after I clean up the house!

  2. That just about sums it up.

    Best wishes. Linda
