“How do you do it? Aren’t you tired?”
I get asked these questions a lot. I’m a wife and a mother with a career, of course I’m tired. I’m completely exhausted. Every day. So much so, that it’s rare that I don’t fall asleep in the toddler bed at naptime and bedtime.
I get up and go to the gym because I have to. You get up every morning and go to work because you need the money. Or you wake up and spend the day with the kids because someone has to protect them and teach them.
I have to go to the gym to stay healthy for my little. I want to be able to play with and chase her for years to come. Because I need it for my own sanity. It’s a break away from kids and paperwork. It’s time for me. Just a little bit. Everyday.
I think we ALL need that. Whether we’re mommies or not. We ALL need a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
