You ever have those days were you’re just like…. jsdhkfjadhiueuidabasvasdf!!! (No that wasn’t a typo.) Thats how I feel. And I know you’ve felt like that too.
Im currently blogging while my kitchen has had a Boston Market bag standing there for 2 days, Luna’s food (peas, prunes and avocados) look like poop smeared all over the floor and her high chair. My so called “working table” has thank you cards that still haven’t been finished from our wedding. Binders, papers, medical records, receipts, and somehow even a pair of Mikes socks managed to find their way up here. Gracing me with their smelly presence and shiiiiiiit.. Ugh its such a clutter f*ck to the point where my computer blends in and it takes me a second to spot it. The living room?!?!!??! Oh dear Lord, please don’t get me started on that. I’d be lucky to make my way over to the bedroom door without stepping on one of Luna’s toys. Or if its a really bad day where life just wants to f*ck me extra hard… I accidently leave a pair of Valentino flip flops by the couch (with the studs) and step on them later. Barefoot!!! Mother Effing OUCH!!!
Shall we proceed to the bedroom and bathroom? I think not. Lets just say the amount of hair you can collect off the floor and shower can create 10 wigs….Please don’t think we are disgusting slobs. But yes, WE ALL HAVE OUR DAYS!! And as a “stay at home mom/housewife” I feel like I failed my family.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about my mom a lot. I start to remember how my dad was a truck driver who was away for weeks at a time. My mom basically raised all 3 of us. She took us to school EVERYDAY ON TIME. Drove my brothers to karate twice a week, me to gymnastics. Never missed any appointments. She ALWAYS had the house spotless! Laundry done and folded. She went on almost every school field trip as a chaperone for my brothers and I. Her creativity is over the top! Not one birthday or holiday was spent anything short of amazing. There were decorations and themes for everything!!! Here I am…..can’t even find the ketchup in my fridge let alone keep the house clean. I’ve been going commando lately and not because I’m being sexy for my husband, but because the laundry needs some major attention.
Being a housewife and mom IS HARD. I don’t even know how some women can find time to go to school or work or both?!! Are you even real!? I give you ladies SO MUCHHH PROPS! But seriously, for those who say “stay at home moms have it easy.” I want to smack you nicely in the face. If you don’t have children you will NEVER understand the amount of work that gets put in every single day… sometimes I would MUCH rather work from 9-5 and come home knowing I can relax….
GREAT……my daughter is up from her barely hour nap!! BRB (when she wakes up she immediately stares at the door waiting for me to come in lol)
Im back, 2 days later…. I don’t even have time to finish ONE blog post. URGGG. So I don’t know about you guys but how do you spend your days?? It might seem like my life is very put together and effortless. With Luna and I singing songs all day long but ohhhhhhhh it is so far from that. I really don’t remember taking a shower for longer than 10 minutes. When I need to pee, or worse… (#2) Luna won’t give me a second to myself! I need to bring her into the restroom with me. NOT right by the toilet but in her lounge chair a few feet away from me haha which makes it such an uncomfortable experience because she’s just starring at me while I push. Then she starts crying and I have to cut my body short from getting rid of the..well, you know what. HELL I should be the one wearing a diaper here!!! Ew okay, Im getting very sickly detailed with this. Moving on…. When Luna and I come home from running errands I can’t even take my shoes off! Or unpack the groceries! She always needs my attention first, whether it be changing her, feeding her, or putting her to sleep. By the time I get around to putting those groceries away, everything is melted and warm. (See my video for proof.) But as a matter of fact, I really try to NOT run errands with her. Unbuckling and buckling her from the carseat is soooo annoying. Especially because we live in Florida, not only is it hot as balls but its humid. SO that’s like sticky sweaty balls hot. Gross. And I get it, Luna is just such a doll. But getting stopped by every single person “omg she is just the cutest” gets veryyyyyy old. “Yeah gee ok thanks lady. Do YOU want to entertain her for a minute so I can have a sip of water without her knocking it over?” Or those who stop me in the parking lot so they can take a look at her. Excuse me people, but what makes you think I want my 6 month old baby under the brutal Florida sun!? Okay, great….this post is going to turn everybody away from us now lol
For those who are pregnant with their first, or planning to get pregnant …just enjoy this quiet freedom you have!!! Seriously, binge watch all your shows! Get your nails done and massages as often as your bank allows you to. Prepare your food and savor each bite because soon your taste buds won’t have a chance to indulge in your meals. Sit on the toilet for however long you’d like. Even if you don’t need to go, JUST SIT THERE! I promise you’ll miss one day! Take a road trip somewhere and blast your music as loud as possible!! (I know theres some babies who love car rides) but most likely as soon as your favorite part of the song comes on and you’re about to jam out, the baby starts crying. Ruining that Mariah Carey moment for you. AND THE BIGGEST ONE YET!!! ENJOY THE ATTENTION YOU GET NOW!!!! Whether its your husband, boyfriend, family or friends. Because once that baby comes, I’m sorry to break it to you. Nobody gives a sh*t about you anymore lol This is how conversations will go:
Person: HEY! Hows that baby doing?!
You: Oh he/she is doing great! Don’t you want to know how Im doing though?
Person: yeah sure, how are you?
You: Well, I actually had major surgery the other day.
“Person: Oh no thats terrible. Soooooo who watched the baby??
As some of you may already know, I started a YouTube channel about 2 months ago. However I was successfully able to record and upload ONE VIDEO. LOL. Great start right?! I’m not really good at being persistent. BUTTTT a few days ago I was able to do my first VLOG!! So, right below you can get a little glimpse into what a typical “housewife” day looks like! Enjoy!!
