Ok so I got married just over 3 years ago, I am not going to tell you a story about how I was Super Wife…that would be lying and I vowed at my last confessional (in my head) I would try hard not to lie
anymore as often.
But I would say I was decent, made homemade dinners, did the laundry, cleaned the toilets (yuck) all the typical stuff…then baby came!
Well before baby’s arrival, I, of course, vowed to be Super Mom. I was going to not only clean the house, do the laundry and continue to rock the dinners, but I was going to scrapbook, join mom groups, take baby to swimming, write a children’s book, learn to knit, the list goes on.
I mean, I would have all this time…baby would sleep like 16 hours a day like cats do, so outside of the solid 8 hours a night I would be getting, I had 8 other hours of time to kill.
Not only did I not get out of my housecoat till 11am most days…home cooked meals became “whatever” was in the fridge, laundry got done, as long as you don’t count the part when you take the clothes out of the dryer and does taking a picture on my phone count as scrapbooking (if I intend to print it and stick on a piece of paper at SOME point)?
Would I change any of it? No…would my husband, not baby part, but perhaps cutting out the beer budget (trimming it slightly) to set aside the monthly dollars to hire a maid? I’ll ask him when he’s done scrubbing the toilets.
