Does anyone else have the 11pm weeknight panic attack? I’m having one right now. What will I pack my daughter for lunch tomorrow??? How much past 7 can I sleep in while squeezing the minimum required tasks in? Also, I have to remember to fill out a permission slip, make sure #1 is wearing red for spirit day and school photos, and…there’s at least one more thing, but I can’t think of it, and now I’m stressed that I won’t think of it tomorrow until it’s too late. You’d think after nine months of this, I’d have gotten it together. Then there’s all the stuff on the list that I didn’t do because, well I just wanted to watch some trashy TV and eat a second dinner since most of first dinner is spent getting people drinks, seconds, napkins, and cleaning up the floor. Summer camp. Language classes. How will she ever learn to ride a bike?!?! All these things are running through my head, and my husband is sound asleep next to me. He spends one morning at home and sees me leafing through a scholastic order form at 10am, and we laugh about how great my life is. And you know what, I’m never offended because my life is damn good! But still…what the heck am I going to pack for lunch tomorrow morning when I have 45 minutes to get kids up, dressed, get lunches packed, breakfast made, dishes done, and both kids off to two different schools? Oh, and probably need to wear something kind of nice because it’s Mother’s Day Tea Party at #2’s pre-school. And speaking of Mother’s Day – should I say that I want a subscription to the salami of the month club or do I just get it for myself? Well, I’m going to cross my fingers and hope it goes well tomorrow, because right now I need to know what’s going to happen on the Criminal Minds season finale. This is the life of one mom, and I stand by it! HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all you lovely moms – enjoy it!
