Speaking of trying to find the energy for a shower after managing to workout…
Do you ever feel like you hear your baby crying only to go check on them and find them sleeping soundly or playing quietly or what not?
I swear I cannot take a shower without thinking I am hearing one of the kids crying. Or all of the kids crying simultaneously.
It seriously takes the relaxation right out of a nice, hot shower.
It can be late at night, all the kids sound asleep, and I will hop in the shower quick and still think I am hearing one of the kids start to cry.
At this point, I have learned that they are likely not screaming their heads off and therefore I don’t jump out of the shower dripping wet and cold to go find nothing but three kids sleeping soundly in (or near) their beds.
AND if they are in fact crying, I have learned that they will survive until I get the shampoo out of my hair. What good is mommy with soap suds in her hair that inevitably get in the baby’s eyes or in their mouth?
Of course this has only gotten worse since my husband has deployed. Being the only adult in the house makes me hear all the creepy noises all the time!
It’s not just the shower either. It happens to me while I’m driving, while I have my headphones in, while I’m half asleep.
I pretty much can’t make it through my day without hallucinating tears at least once. Basically I am over here losing my mind, one day at a time.
Can I just point out how unfair it is that I have to endure fake crying when I sure get enough real tears in my life?! Like, seriously.
Can I just enjoy my shower please?!
Well, there you have it, it’s been just another Manic Mom-day!
Do you hallucinate tears too?!
Someone please tell me I am not the only person who hears crying when there is no one actually crying!
