I’m a bad vacation blogger. And you know what? I’m okay with that. I needed a blogging break. I needed to get away from the internet for awhile. It can be very addiciting can’t it? I am just enjoying my vacation and taking some time to breathe before heading home next week.
Then I’ll be back. Oh yes, dear readers – I will be back in full bloggy form. You. are. welcome.
So today, instead of trying to be funny or creative, I just have a couple of questions. My friend, Nicole, calls these Great Mysteries of Motherhood. I just scratch my head and think, “Why again?”
For example: Why do children fight, bicker, argue, drive mommy insane wear mommy out every waking moment of the day UNTIL OF COURSE bedtime, when suddenly they’re in cahoots and having a grand old time together when in fact THEY SHOULD BE SLEEPING! Why, oh readers, why?
And why is it that the second I sit down on the toilet all hell heck breaks loose and everyone needs something at the exact same time? Why? I attempted to explain such behavior here, but I still don’t fully understand (despite my brilliant mathematical/scientific theory – read with sarcasm, please).
And now, a why that doesn’t involve the children. Why do I wake up every morning determined to eat well, exercise and live an all over healthy lifestyle, but by midday have myself completely talked out of it as I snatch a handful of M & M’s? Why do I do that?
Finally, why, despite all the drama and craziness of every day life, do I wake up each morning thrilled to see those little faces and hug those little necks?
