Never alone....

I am never alone. Which to the lonely may seem quite nice. Just like I admire all your quiet time and opportunities to shower. But there comes a point where the constant company of tiny humans that never cease to need need need you starts to mess with your mind.

The other day I was looking for something (on behalf of a child of course) and as I walked around hunting I was talking to myself. I talk to myself a lot. Not because there is no one to hear me, it's just because no one listens. So I'm mumbling: "Maybe it's over here, nope." "Did it get left under the?....no" "Well, maybe if people would put things away...". As I'm searching I tell the children to stay upstairs and look, while I look downstairs. I continue to mumble. "I swear we saw it when we were in here a minute ago. Why can't we remember...". Then I stop. I'm sorry, "we" who? Michelle, you are talking to yourself.

I think I may be going mad. The continuous hum of little voices and all the no-longer-warm meals are going to my head.

We're going crazy now aren't we precious?

I talk to myself ALL THE TIME.

I'm turning into my mother as I mumble under my breath while washing hand dishes....

"But is anyone helping me? No! Of course not, let's just let mom do all the dishes while we watch TV and complain about dinner..."

Yeah, we're nuts. But at least you're pretty?

So funny! Isn't it so nice that most Moms know just how you are feeling and have or are going through the same thing? When I feel nuts it helps me to know that I am definitely not alone! (Even if it's just you and me!) :)
