When did I get like this?..
I am so disappointed in myself of late.. I have been analysing it all and trying to work out where I went wrong to correct it. Thing is it all happened when I had my gorgeous children.
Before the kids I was on top of birthdays, I remembered them all and bought presents 3 months in advance.
Before the kids I loved to cook.
Before the kids I could do a 2 hr run and back it up with a workout again in the afternoon.
Before the kids I was fierce and strong.
Before the kids I worked and still managed to play..
Now don't get me wrong I love my kids to bits and I am NOT giving them up for anything but I am crap....
I forget birthdays until the day they are happening (if it is not someone I see or chat to daily).
I "sustain" my husband, I don't even call it feeding him as he just gets something plonked in front of him at night.
I manage to exercise 3/4 times a week but it leaves me so tired I am either cranky with the kids later or just let them eat junk so they will stop the noise.
I am an emotional weiner, I get upset over nothing and..
I never have time to even window shop between work, house and chores.
Why did I get like this? Surely I can change it now it is clear to me? Is it just a mother thing, how are children so time consuming? Tell me you feel the same.. *or of not lie to me and tell me you know lots of others that do*
