My days are… Tricky.
3 out 4 people in our house have ADHD and/or ADD. So, three of us are insanely cranky until the Adderall kicks in and the fourth person mostly hides.
I try to keep things neat and clean. This would be easier if I did not have todo a daily hazmat check on my children’s rooms.

Shoes. They’re everywhere. They’re dirty, or old. They’re too loose; too tight or bumpy. Sometimes, even though they’re everywhere… no one can find them.
Homework. This is my kid’s average daily homework load. He’s six.
I mean, yeah. I don’t do this mom-gig for the glory and glamour. So, okay, I should almost surely be less needing of reassurance. BUT. Since I spend all of my time anticipating, catering to and meeting the needs of these humans that I love I’m going to need, just sometimes, a “Nice job, Mom.” And a big cup of coffee or a small glass of wine.
You know, I get it. Every mom (and dad and person) has a lot going on these days. I’m just thinking it’s time to stop asking, “What are you so busy with?” Because it’s never going to start a constructive conversation and dangit, it’ll wear a mom down.
