If you have been reading my blog for awhile or not, you already know that I love being a mom, being a mom ROCKS my world to the 10th power. Its the best thing ever. You get my point. More importantly, I love being Ralphy's mom. He is the cutest little boy in the world and no I'm not just saying that because I'm he's mom, anybody that has any sense can see it, but we all know its not all pink and roses in motherhood.
Motherhood can kick your butt, it can drain you like no other job in the world. Take me, for example, my munchkin has been sick for a few days now, fever, stuffy nose, coughing, the works and I have come to the conclusion that no one will ever deal with so many different bodily fluids EVER. For your sake, I won't elaborate on that any further.
Another not so great thing about motherhood, less sleep. Its reality, moms sleep less, its part of the job. Not only do we sleep less, at least at the beginning, but we can also function. Take me for example (again), since my munchkin has been sick , I can count on one hand how many hours I've slept in the last 2 days. If you happen to follow me on Twitter, you probably know that last night I slept 2 hours. Its thanks to the lord above and coffee, that I am able to write this post. Oh and did I mention daddy is sick too? Yeah, because it would just be to easy if it were just Ralphy being sick.
The joys of motherhood, we sleep less, we kiss boo boos, we have black circle under our eyes, but we are the glue that keeps it all together. What would the world be with out mothers? I don't even want to know.
P.S. This post was written while both daddy and Ralphy sleep. No one was neglected in the writing of this post.
