Piece of The Pie

They all want a bite outta me!! The people in my life all need me, and that's a good feeling...except when they all need me at the same time!!

"Mommy...where's my uniform shirt?"
"Mommy..she hit me again!"
"Mommy..I can't find my shoes..and I'm late for the bus!"
"Mommy...the toilet won't flush!"

This whole scene happens while I am in bed, trying to wake up!! This happens every day, just different questions. All you mom's out there know what I'm talking about right??

The daily grind...this one needs new socks, this one needs to get to their O.T. appointment, I need to fill out paperwork for my Mom and take her to her doctor and chemo appointments not to mention cleaning and cooking...

My husband is sadly last on this list, by the time the kids are in bed (well, most of them)and the house is quiet (except the phone ringing) we are able to talk.....who are you???

The pie only has crumbs left....a few lonely crumbs!! I am completely depleted. There is nothing left of me.....

We are trying to carve out time for just the two of us, it's a daily battle. But it is imperative to our marriage to make the time.

I started this blog as a way for me to talk to other moms and get advice as well as give any if needed. It's a way for me to get the "pie" filled up I can be able to give my family a piece of me -- day after day...after day..after day...


  1. You write so beautifully. You have so much on your shoulders. It may not be a comfort - but it makes me feel as if the things in my life that seem to be killing me are nothings anymore...

    Sometimes its not even one day at a time, its one breath at at a time. Believe it or not there will be a day when your nest is happily empty and you and hubby can spend all the time in the world together!!!!!

    love you my friend.

  2. Thanks for the comment! Your blog is so cute!

    This post is soooo true, there is never enough of me to go around either.
