Mom Batteries


Today I drove Cub and his little friend to the Zoo.  As we were driving home I made a phone call using the bluetooth system in my car.  As I wrote about earlier - sometimes I have trouble communicating with the electronic voice making the call in my car.

After answering all of the questions, the last thing the voice said was "Phone battery low."

I heard Cub's friend giggle and say "Mom battery low."  I think he thought it really had said that.

Then I giggled because I did feel like my Mom battery was running low.  Really low.

I love being a mom, but they do wear me down at times.  My Mom battery doesn't last as long as I would like.  Some days I wish I had a longer lasting battery or a super charged one.

The good news, I guess, is that my batteries are rechargeable.  I recharge them with sleep, chocolate, stupid TV shows, a good book, the Mormon channel, exercise, and snuggles from my boys.  Right now the best thing for recharging my batteries is when Big D is home.

When he comes home, all is right again in the world.  He takes care of me and the boys so well.  And his Dad battery always seems to be charged.  Man, I am thankful for him.

Good luck with your Mom battery this week KK.  I hope you will fine ways to charge your Mom battery when it is running low.

  1. TRUTH. I definitely need to be recharged!!

  2. Oh my goodness! This is SOOOOO true. I feel like my mom battery is running low way too often. I keep thinking of that conversation I had with you where I asked you if I'm just stressed out or if this phase of motherhood is just SO hard. You agreed it was hard, and seriously, I go back to that all the time when I feel like I just choose the kids and leave the house in shambles just so my mom battery will last through bed time. I love you and your wise words!
