1. A Lie In
And by lie in, I mean not waking up until after 8am. Even when I do have lie ins, I somehow end up awake before 8am, normally it’s changing the kids, giving them milk and settling them back down into bed for a bit.
Now I’m one of those people, that once I’m awake, I’m awake and I can’t fall back to sleep. So I don’t think it’s too much to ask for the kids to sleep for an extra hour or so tomorrow morning (I know this isn’t going to happen, but a girl can dream).
2. Not To Share My Snacks
I can’t eat anything in my house without two looming shadows appearing over my shoulder, demanding my food, even when they have their own.
It is very impressive though, that even though they don’t respond to their names half the time, that I can be on the other side of the house, opening a packet of crisps and they can hear it over Thomas The Tank Engine (or whatever is on TV). It’s like it’s their super power, super selective hearing for snacks.
3. Not Too Have To Argue With One of My Toddlers Over Something Ridiculous.
This won’t happen, I know this won’t, but I would like to go a day without having to explain to one of my offspring, why they can’t go running off in the middle of the car park, or why they’re not allowed to eat mud or sit in a puddle. It seems alot of my time spent parenting, is preventing them from doing something potentially harmful to themselves and them yelling at me about it. I just don’t want to have to do it on Mother’s Day, although I know I’m going to have too, I just don’t want too.
What are you hoping for this Mother’s Day?
