After my classes I picked up groceries, picked up the kids, and then got them all to their respective music lessons. We got home by seven pm.
I have just finished making and cleaning up dinner and now the kids are showering, doing homework and getting ready for bed.
You know what? I am exhausted.
I can do my own school classes, the home stuff, and the run easily enough.
My kids however just wear me out.
They talk, they fight, they negotiate, they call each other names, and they tattle on each other. Sometimes they do all of these things in the space of half a minute.
My children drain me both emotionally and physically.
Dearest hubby looked at me as we cleaned up after dinner, and after I had finished listening to the dramas of his day, he told me to go and hide behind my laptop for a while. I must look really tired tonight.
So, here I am. Hiding and blogging. Blogging and hiding.
My Mother used to hide too; she however did it behind a newspaper. I guess my siblings and I must have exhausted her too.
I however am not my Mother.
I am a Mom of the new millennium.
I am going to see what's on CNN.com.
