I’ve blogged about this topic before on my other blog www.mumsword.net
I originally wrote this post in 2007 and I have to say that not much has changed. I am still a walking contradiction.
I want the kids to come to me when there is a problem….I want them to sort it out themselves.
I want lots of kids….I want to have my time and my body back.
I like it when the kids sneak into my bed….I want a full night’s uninterrupted sleep.
I want lots of kids….I want to be able to afford to travel more often.
I love being a stay-at-home mum….I want to go out and work.
I want my kids to learn independence….I want to be involved in their lives…too involved?
I want my kids to ask me questions….I want my kids to not ask so many questions.
I want to be able to go out until 4am…I want to be able to function the next day.
I want to sleep in on weekends….I don’t want to waste family time sleeping.
I want my mind to be free of all these thoughts….then what would I have to think about?
So what about you? Are you a walking contradiction?
