Ethan - 2 1/2 months old
The other day I was giving my kids and bath and I noticed something floating in the bath that should not be there. Yes, there was poop in the bath tub! Seriously. Gross, I know.
Immediately, I got the kids out of the bath and transferred them to my bathtub for another scrub down. Cleaning poop is a really big pain, but I chalk it up to another part of my job description as a mom. During this stinky situation, I thought "can this wait?" or "maybe I will wait until Ryan gets home and make him do it".There is no time to wait in a situation like this. You HAVE to clean out the tub, the kids, and disinfect all the toys. The thought came to me - Moms can never be lazy.
You would think I would have come to this conclusion much earlier in my momhood. Like when I was pumping breast milk 10-12 times a day. Or maybe when I was up all night with 2 crying infants. Moving to a new state with two 6 months babies. Nope, not then.
Trust me, I am lazy about plenty of things. If I go to the grocery store I often purposely don't buy everything on the list because I am too lazy to walk my butt to the other side of the store. Call me crazy, but I do it all the time.
I will spend all day doing laundry, but then the folded clothes stay in their baskets in my room for days.
So ,those are things I CAN be lazy about. But stuff like poop in the bathtub cannot be procrastinated.
So my point is, my days of laziness are really over. Some days it make me happy that I am so productive, but other days I am so exhausted that the thought of washing another dish will make me vomit. Moms and laziness is an oxymoron.
To all the moms out there - You are fabulous!
