A day in the life.... December 20 2013, 0 Comments

This week has been completely crazy with a heavy workload and school holiday obligations. I have found myself with very little time to be on Motherburg. I also must confess that I have become addicted to this French show call The Returned and watched back to back episode this week after C's bedtime. This show is spooky, kind of like LOST so not for children and maybe not for all adults but somehow the French have made it irrésistible to moi. Also, I typed up this list last night. I have one day a week where I am home. It is my stay at home mom day. There is always this conversation we have at work on who has it easier. Stay at home moms or working moms. I think the workload is different depending on what you do, whether it is working from home or staying at home with the kids but I can say in my opinion both are tough. I am always amazed at how much I have to do and how exhausted I feel at the end of this day. This is of course a larger conversation but I included this list for it always amazes me what all moms do in one day. Feel free to share your list with me!
