A Monday

Why is it that Mondays always seem to come back around? What is up with that?! Oh well, they do. Mondays are good and bad.

Mondays mean that Rob has to go back to work and I'm full on mom some nine hours, give or take. It means I don't get a break from the munchkin. It means I have five full days with monkey under foot, needing constant attention, and being stubborn. Of course, it isn't all bad. She is a pretty cute monkey.


The good part of Mondays is that it's a fresh start. So all those things you swore you would do last week but didn't do, you get a chance to actually accomplish. You get a chance to have a good, clean start to your week. Yes, that means you get to finally take your weekly shower! But seriously, it gives me a redo if the last week sucked. (And let's be honest, Addie is in a phase where we have some sucky weeks.)

But Mondays mean that you start the cycle all over again. You clean again. You cook again. You plan meals. You run errands. Everything starts all over again. Anyone else feeling like you are just stuck on repeat?!

Of course Mondays also means another week of the good things. It's means another week where I get my night off. It means more play group activities. It means more blog posts from yours truly - and who doesn't love that!? It means routine and sometimes routine is nice. If you have a kid then you probably understand that.

Apparently I'm very conflicted about how I feel about Mondays.

Oh well, what can ya do?! It's Monday again - good or bad.
