Favorite Drain #NaBloPoMo

Roasted Beanz NaBloPoMo

Well today’s question of the day seems a tad evident doesn’t it? {SLEEP!} But I assume that not everyone has a toddler that avoids shut-eye like the Wicked Witch of the West shuns water. At this point the only thing that can wrestle my intense desire for a nap is silence. I can see it now, I’m totally going to be one of those old-timers sporting white cotton-swab hair, saying “Shhhhhh” to random noisy people.

And you know, they really need badges for Moms. Not for notoriety or anything but as a warning to others how hair-brained I’m going to be. Or better yet, I should custom order t-shirts to wear that warn “Sleepless & Over Caffeinated” or “No Shower: Breathe Lightly”. How about “Barney Me This” or “Barbie Me That”. Cause the good Lord knows, if it weren’t for them I’d never get five seconds to pee alone. Little did I realize that after having kids I’d trade nights filled with fun shots of liquor for strained shots of espresso.

I am sure I am not alone in my plight. All I can do is be thankful for Betty Crocker’s one-box wonders and Bob Evans take-out. Oh, and let me send out a Amen {hallelujah} for organic fruit delivery. Well let me add grocery, fruit and diaper delivery too; Because if it doesn’t have a drive-thru it ain’t happening anymore. Because eventually it gets better right? Hello?

    LOL! Love it, and to be honest, it doesn’t really get better! You may get a little more sleep, and a few extra hours alone. But be on the look out for “take me here” and the ever dreaded homework!

    Oh my goodness, you are funny! I much enjoy silence too- but like many a mothers and wives- I just don’t get enough of it. They need to make a pill for that.

    HA! I never used the drive thru (unless it was bad weather) before I became a mother. Now, forget about it – if it isn’t delivered or doesn’t have a drive thru I’m not getting it!

    Love your humor in this post.

    I loved you Wicked Witch of the West analogy.

    I love quiet. I have a low tolerance for crazy, hyper children. I send the kids to the back of the house to play if I feel myself gettign frustrated because of the sound. I just prefer quiet activities, and so far I haven’t had a whole lot of battles over my need for silence.

    Also, you gave me a freaking brilliant idea about mommy badges. OMG LIGHTBULB.

    I soooooo know what you mean, lol. Without coffee, I’m like a floppy useless jelly fish. It’s terrible :)

    My biggest energizer when I’m not sure I can make it until bedtime, is dancing. Abby and I blast some old 80’s music, and dance around the house cleaning up as fast as we can. After 15 minutes, the house is cleaner, we’re both laughing, and I’m pumped enough to make it through the rest of the day!
