When we fall in love, the brain releases a chemical called phenylethylamine (PEA) which causes our palms to sweet, our hearts to race, and "butterflies" in our stomachs. It's possible to trigger someone else's brain to release PEA by looking at them a lot during a conversation, which in turn makes that person more likely to fall in love with you.
so both of my kids are asleep. usually the rule for new moms is to sleep when the baby sleeps. that rule obviously doesn’t apply to me. i handle 99% of my family’s needs. i utilize every second i get when i have “free time”. i guess it’s part of grown up life. but i don’t understand why hubby gets all the free time in the world. he’s back at work, and when he comes home he spends the day on his hobby. ugh the unfairness of being a mom. or is being a woman just an unfair gender? i mean we pretty much are more responsible than men. we have our monthly visitor, we can handle stress better, we are more mature, and we’re expected to do the housework (which includes the cooking), and taking care of the kids. or am i just describing my personal life?
since the pregnancy of my second child i’m constantly reminding mel how much i do for the family on top of what i have to do daily. i guess it’s my cry for help, or maybe my cry for appreciation. yet every attempt to get some sort of token of appreciation or help is a failure. just a simple sincere “thank you” or “what can i help you with” would lift my spirits.
i must sound so selfish. don’t get me wrong i don’t do things because i want to be acknowledged every time, but it would be nice to be shown appreciation. i surprise myself with what i can accomplish on a daily basis. of course some days are better than others. in the past 2 years i have grown so much as a person. my patience has been tested plenty of times. i no longer see myself as the young adult who is still figuring things out; but rather the young adult who’s figured things out, but still gets caught with surprises.
put my shoes on, i guarantee you’d be asking for a different fit.
so i recently created a blog on wordpress lifeondemand after a few days i realized that i needed something much more simplr. so here i am on tumblr. let me do an official introduction…
i’m 25 turning 26 in the very near future. i’ve always wanted to accomplish something by the time i turned 25. so here i am. 25, married, house, and 2 kids. within a blink of an eye everything i have was in front of my face. and i’m happy to say that if i could do it again, i wouldn’t change anything. waking up to hearing Mason crying because he’s hungry is my morning coffee. it just wakes me up. then hearing Marley babble nonsense keeps me energized. i’m growing as an adult and striving to become the best parent for my kids, but still trying to manage to have sanity through my friends & family.
so like the title of my blog… i’m an energizer mommy who’s going nucking futs!
