When I Grow Up I Don't Want To Be A Mom! Especially Not A Single Mom!

By
Title Company with Magnus Title Agency

My Neighbor had to let her nanny go, and has asked friends to help out.  My wife takes the Tuesday shift 11:30pm to 9:00 am,

That leaves me at home to get the kids (6 and 8) ready for school and delivered by 7:30 am. 

Not as easy as it sounds...and Thankless!

I had it so easy before...Get up eat , get ready and leave for work whenever I wanted 4 am, 7 am not a problem just get ready and go.

Now on Wednesday I have to get up get myself ready.   Then wake two zombies that don't want to get up, make their breakfast that they don't want to eat yet, and pack their lunches ...( I always forget something) 

                                                         

Now I have them brush their teeth and get dressed, but I have final approval of clothes, I am sorry a spring dress and flip flops just won't get out the door when it is 40 degrees outside.  

Then I have to calm the crying as she gets into a pair of jeans and closed toed shoes or boots.

When I finally get them to school I want a nap.  :)  I am beat, worn out, stressed!

So Mom's and Single Mom's my hat is off to you!  You do a HELLUVA JOB!

You have a job, filled with complaints, multitasking, psychology, time constraints, nursing the sick, educating, and somehow you keep it all together. 

I don't know how you do it!  Frankly I don't care!  But PLEASE PLEASE keep doing it!  It is too tough for me.

About 25 years ago, my hubs became one of the original "Mr. Moms" and stayed at home with our youngest son, part-time, while I went back to work, full time.  He learned quickly that is was not a soap operas and bon-bon life I lead, and I quickly fell into the "So, what did you do all day?" mode...We cut each other some slack, adjusted to our roles, and as soon as he found full-time gainful employment, (1 year later), he was ready for a role reversal again! Thanks for the recognition of what women do, every day, in every culture, all over the world...

Cheryl,

 Thank you for stopping by!  It was my pleasure doing the post...  It was the least I could do.  It is so much different than just hanging with the kids on the weekend when there are no time constraints or schedules.

I was a single mom . . . however, there's nothing SINGLE about that job.  Great blog, and I hope you shared this with your wife!!  Yes, when you grow up . . . don't become a Single Mom! 

"I am sorry a spring dress and flip flops just won't get out the door when it is 40 degrees outside."

Too funny.  I had this same 'discussion' with my son years ago.  "BUT MOM!  It can't be cold outside.  The sun is shining!"

Carla,

You know...I didn't show my wife...Perhaps I should.  The Neighbor found a nanny and my wife found a full time job.  My wife now works 4am to noon, so I do this everyday now!

However my wife the saint does as much pre-work in the evening to make my job quite a bit easier.  

She packs the lunches, lays out their jackets, backpacks, and puts homework in Back packs, plus writes cheat sheet notes for me. :)
