Ok. So I was writing a different topic today (which I’m about to finish finally) but I had a realization while I was brushing my daughter’s hair that I just had to write down immediately.
I just realized, because I was feeling lazy and didn’t do much the whole day (just the laundry – becoming more of a hobby now, really), as I was brushing my daughter’s hair, that I will never have a real vacation anymore. You know, that kind where you just bum around and do nothing, and that it’s absolutely okay because you’re on a vacation?
I realized that I can no longer have that. I realized that being a hands on mom now meant no breaks, no vacations, no special holidays. It’s a non-stop kind of work. It’s tiring when I think about it. Even though I love my daughter and would do anything for her obviously. But when I think about not having that freedom, the kind my husband and I used to have, it makes me a little sad.
Do any of you moms out there feel the same way?
