A mothers thoughts.

After a hard and particularly stressful day I've started to think I need a major shift of attitude towards housework. I need to learn to stop resenting it and be more mindful. I dont want to feel drained and grumpy and frustrated because charlie follows me around and either wants to help or messes up what I've just tidied. I need to try and stop my mind racing with stuff that has got to be done that I invariably never get round to doing anyway.

Its just how can housework compare to spending as much time as possible with my darling boy.

Gosh, that sums up my thoughts over the last couple of days. Why is it so hard to let go and just 'be'with our children? Why does housework have this enormous importance in our minds? I wish i knew the answer!

I often have to make that conscious decision to turn away or shut the door on hosework and think of fun instead.
