end of the rope?
This will probably sound horrible, but I will share any ways. That's what the bloggin is about, right? The other day I woke up, and thought to myself I can't wait for Max's bedtime. Mama needs a break.
I know, sounds awful right. I may be that horrible person that I fear. But I couldn't shake it. I just felt this dire need to have some "peace" time.
So what does one do when one feels like this? Well I can't put the baby back where he came from, so that's off the list. And the hubby was working so there was no tapping out. "You"re it!"
What I did do. Powered through. Put my big girl undies on and rocked the day the best I could. Drank an extra cup of coffee, stretched, vented to some friends, and CHARGED.
I know myself well enough to know that this feeling will pass. But while it's here, it can feel pretty isolating. It can also make you feel like a bad mama. It has nothing to do with Max, or my life really. I love being a mother. But sometimes you just need a break. Sometimes you just need quiet, and most of the time that is not an option.
What do you do when you feel at the end of your rope?
