24 questions I have on time, all the time

24 questions I have about motherhood and time, all the time

  1. Is it morning…or still evening?
  2. Why is it always so early? Is CBeebies even on yet? *Yawn*
  3. How have we been up so long yet I’ve completely failed to get us dressed?
  4. Why have we not left the house yet?
  5. And why exactly does it take so long to leave the house with small children?
  6. Will we ever not late?
  7. Is it ridiculous to eat lunch at 11.15?
  8. How did it get so late and we’ve not eaten lunch yet?
  9. Only how many days to Christmas? Seriously…?
  10. How is it only 3pm?
  11. When did it get to 4pm already?
  12. How many times can my children put our cushions on the floor when my back is turned?
  13. And how long till my iPhone’s not disabled?
  14. Is it wine o’ clock yet?
  15. If the days are long but the years are short, why does the extra ten minutes on the nights my husband is late seem like they’re stretching out in the slowest of slow, slow motion over ten hundred years?
  16. Aren’t my children beyond amazing, look at their sleepy faces…how long till they get up?
  17. Why is there never enough time in the day? And why does it seem like some days I never do anything but there’s never enough time for everything?
  18. Why are mums so obsessed with time?
  19. Didn’t I just have a tiny, tiny baby…?
  20. Where’s the past four years gone?
  21. How did it get so late?
  22. Where can I buy myself some time? And what would I do with an extra hour in the day? Oh, the possibilities
  23. Is that my baby awake again…?
  24. Why am I not in bed early, yet again? Just let me check Twitter, Facebook, Instagram…one more time.

    Love this so much. So nice to know other mums think these too. Especially: Is it ridiculous to eat lunch at 11.15? We ate ours at 11.09 this week….well when they get up at 5:59 some days you need to! 🙂
