And so because I am exhausted and trying not to fall asleep at my computer, I am just going to give you ladies one bit of advice: REST WHEN YOU NEED IT (and if at all possible, before you need it - because trust me, you're going to)!
I have discovered a truly precious secret... something worth it's weight in gold!! Hmm.. if only secrets could be weighed... never mind. Anyhoo, yes, a treasure - take hold of it mommies:
Husbands and children do not fall apart instantaneously upon mother's departure from her post!
They only seem to go spiralling into utter chaos at the mere mention of mom needing to use the potty FOR FIVE MINUTES, when truly they are FINE (leading me to suspect that this is a cleverly devised plot by males everywhere to avoid any and all exposure to the brown toxic substance often found caked onto the inside of a baby's diaper).
Friends, this is a crucial and life-altering piece of information for us. I know it seems far fetched but being the brave, sacrificial soul that I am, I field-tested this tidbit for us tonight (ok, I was desperate)!
And I'd like to share some of the photos with you. :) Please ladies, in all seriousness, make some time to get away, even if you don't think you need it. An effective mom needs to be healthy, and in touch with God. Sometimes that means a little rejuvination. And don't go getting all guilty on me - I posted about that the other day! Go look for it if you didn't read it... Trust me... once you do it, you'll be hooked. The guilt only lasts a few seconds before the taste of freedom lights a fire in your soul (or is that God? I bet He misses His alone time with us moms).
Ok, I ended up blabbing.
um... yes. Photos. :D (I'm really tired - lol)
There are more but its 1 o'clock in the morning and I'm SO tired... Did I mention that yet? Good nightzzzzzzzzzzzzz....
