Most of us probably hide treats from our family, especially the really good ones. Approximately two-thirds of American moms have a secret snack supply that they keep hidden. And when we want them, we feel like we have to eat them when others aren't around just so we can snack in peace. Sometimes, mom deserves to enjoy a treat without any interruptions.
Advice like “You just need to take more time for yourself!” or “You should get some rest.” always seems to be given to moms. Many moms like us would LOVE to have time to themselves. But how?? And when?? Even if we waited until they sleep, we have never-ending chores to do and mouths to feed.
It seems like kids want whatever you're eating, especially if it looks better than what's on their own plate. The oh-so-familiar "can I try" question comes out of their mouth and before you know it, your delicious dinner just got gobbled up by your little one.
There are a million ways to mess up as a mom. Being the "perfect parent" is virtually impossible so there's no way that any of us will emerge without battle scars. The best thing we can do is learn from our oops moments and move on.
"Sorry I'm not home right nowI'm walking into spiderwebsSo leave a messageAnd I'll call you back..." Sometimes we just want to be left alone. When unexpected visitors or calls interrupt our precious time at home, you just want to ignore it and go on with your day. You have plenty of other things to keep you occupied like never-ending piles of laundry or cleaning up after messy kids. People can always leave a message or come back another time.
