Mommy brain: things that excite me when the little ones are sleeping

Shhhhh! The babies are sleeping! It’s before 9pm, and my little ones are out for the count. Sweet victories! I don’t know if I want to watch grown up tv or just go to sleep. I get so excited just thinking of all the little things I get to do…alone. 

Ok, I can’t be the only one who gets excited, when the babies are sleep because…

I get to use the bathroom in peace

I can have a cup of juice to myself

I don’t have to watch “Sing”, “Pets” or “Shrek”

I can watch tv with real people in the shows

I can eat my food..without drool

I can take a shower without little people pulling the curtains back

I get a break from finding the missing passie

I can read my Family Circle magazine without Nas tearing pages—then me trying to read between the lines

I can drink a glass of Moscato with my feet up

I can take pictures for my blog without little fingers in half the shots

..and with all these thoughts of excitement, I’m too exhausted to do any of it. So I’ll just go to sleep.
