"How are you today?" - "Tired"

When you’re a mom of 3 kids and a Wife of a man who sleeps through almost anything life tends to go a little like this:

6:00 PM – Home from work and making dinner
6:30 PM – Eating dinner (and baking cookies)
7:00 PM – Shower time for the kids
7:30 PM – Daddy time with the kids
8:00 PM – Bed time for the kids
8:30 PM – Still trying to get kids to stay in bed
9:00 PM – Time with the Hubby
11:00 PM – Sweet, sweet pillow
2:30 AM – Jordan yells for you to tuck her in which she has never ever done before and decided tonight was the night to start asking
3:00 AM – Fall back to sleep
3:30 AM – Elijah yells from under his door “Mama! Mama!” and you ignore it for 10 minutes hoping it stops and then realize it wont and get him a drink of “muilk”
4:00 AM – Fall back to sleep
4:30 AM – Taylor stands by your bedside to tell you she had a nightmare and you tell her to go sleep on the couch because you don’t want to deal with her kicking you while you try to enjoy what little sleep you have left to get
5:00 AM – Fall back to sleep
5:30 AM – Hear the ::thud thud thud:: of Jordan running from her room to the couch to join her sister
6:15 AM – Alarm goes off and you hit snooze like 5 times knowing you are not actually getting any extra sleep but its nice to think you are
8:00 AM – Realize that your hopes and dreams of taking a nap during your lunch break are crushed because of a company lunch (can’t complain about free food though!)
