I want to be my own person too.

I often catch myself forgetting that I am a woman also. Not just a mother not just a wife. I am so involved everyday in making sure the kids are well fed the house is clean and doing loads and loads of laundry that I forget to take time for myself and just have fun. I often find myself placing my children and husbands needs first and my needs last. I sometimes want to pull hair out from the daily stresses of making sure the bills get paid and there is food on the table.

Gone are the days when I could go to the movies if I saw a preview I liked. I cant sit down and read a book without worrying how the kids are doing and making sure they are not getting themselves into mischief. I often find myself wondering when my quiet time will be and at night when I get that quiet time I fall asleep as soon as I hit the bed.

I am counting down the days til school starts and I will just have the 3 little ones at home. I am hoping I can find preschool for my 4 year old as I think it will benefit him as much as it will help me out. As soon as the kids are off to school I want to enroll myself in school because I dont just want to be a mom I want to be my own person too.
