Mommy Mommy Mommy Mommy Mommy Mommy

That about sums up my day.

The end.

Okay, so that isn't the end. It was a stressful day. I heard the words "Mommy" and the phrase "Mommy, can I...." more times than I could count. More than all the times those words have been uttered combined!

I'm tired and irritable, have a million things to do this week, and we're leaving for vacation on Saturday. We have plans every single day leading up to vacation, and I have to find time to pack and clean the house...because I have to return to a clean house! It's bad enough coming home from vacation...coming home to a messy house makes it so much worse!

They're overly excited about plans this week and going on vacation, and I'm overly stressed. It's not a good combination.

I finally reached the point where I couldn't hear the word "Mommy" anymore. I locked myself in the bathroom, and took a long shower.

Finally, there was silence.

That is, until I heard the words,"Mommy, can I come in to pee?"

Which was echoed by the other child.

The End.


  1. Ha! how funny! I know those kind of days, I posted about mine the other day too :) At least vacation is right around the corner...look forward to that and the "Mommy" calling won't be so irritating! cute post!

  2. Is it mean that I totally laughed? Only because I am DEAF and I *still* know what that feels like! :)

    And you recall when my kiddo joined me while I thought I'd get a shower... and my fear of what exactly he resorted to when he had to pee...?

    Yeah - mommies can't catch a break sometimes, hee hee! Have a good vacation!

  3. I hear ya! I have told my kids before to NOT say my name again! Good luck getting everything done! Keep your eye on the prize!

  4. Oh dear...makes you wanna rip your ears off! =) Hope today is much better. XOXO

  5. I can so relate to this! Sometimes I think about changing my name:)

  6. I am totally with you on coming home to a dirty house after vacation! The week before the vacation I am such a grouch because I want to get so much done!!!

    When Kyndal was little, I remember telling her one time that it wasn't a law that she start every sentence and question with the word "mommy". One time I counted how many times she said it between her babysitter's house and ours (which was about 15 miles.) She said it 76 times. I used to tell her, at the end of the day, that my ears hurt.

    Now it's just "hey mom".

  7. Ugh. I so feel for you. I hope you can find some peace and quiet at some point within the next week.

    And I totally agree about having a clean house BEFORE you go on vacation!

  8. I'm sorry. I have been there myself a time or two before. It is funny how we can't wait for them to talk and then we just want them to be quiet! lol

    I hope you get everything you need done before your vacation!

  9. Sounds like a day out of my life with all of the Mommy. ;-)

    I always say Moms need a vacation from their vacation because they really are more work for us Mom!s

  10. Ah yes, I know that well.

    Right now our biggie is Whyyyy?

  11. awww I feel you. Let's try this, shut our senses for a few minutes and take a deep breath! then inhale exhale, (10x??) was I able to help you?! :) coz that works for me :)

    dont worry sissy this is just one of these days! :) hope youre feeling better now!

  12. awwww...I hope that you can get some "me" time before long...poor thing.

  13. I felt just like that a couple of days ago. I was in need of a "Mommy time-out" big time. Hopefully this week goes by fast and you get to enjoy your vacation!!! Just hang in there! {{HUGS}}

  14. Yes! That is so our lives as mother's of young children, isn't it? You summed it up perfectly!

  15. Oh girl, I only have one kiddo and I hear enough of Mommy Mommy as it is! I can only imagine. I hope you're having better days since you posted this!

  16. Oh I've been there! I promise you though, when they start to get older, and they call you Mommy less (my son only calls me Mom now), you think back to those times and miss them (sort of!...lol)
