Is it enough?

When I go to bed at night I run through a checklist in my head. It is both motivating and annoying as hell.
Did I make today enough of today.
Did I spend enough time smiling at my baby?
Did I teach my toddler anything new or spend enough time playing with him?
Did I make all the beds?
When I helped my son with his homework was I patient enough and did I explain things to him properly?
Did I have sex with my husband?
Did the washing get put away?
Did everyone get the bedtime story they asked for?
Did I drink enough water to make enough milk for my baby?
Did I send a friend some love?
Did I call my mum?
Some days I go to bed ticking off most of the boxes and I'm quite happy with myself, most nights its half maybe. It's never all the boxes. There is always something that doesn't get done. Always. There is only one of me but I feel like I'm always being pulled in a million different directions.

Am I the only one who does this? How do you make enough of a day? 


  1. Phoar Mumma! Even doing a small handful of things on that list make you amazing. You were made for this motherhood thing, you rock at it.

    1. Oh geez Amy your going to make my head explode! You just have to keep trying don't you?

  2. I do exactly the same thing mast nights. Its crazy, I tell myslef not to but I think it is just habit now

    1. Beck that's exactly it! A bad habit I think, it's just stopping me from sleeping as much as possible!


You like it? you love it? you dig it? Leave me a comment! You have something nasty to say? Take it elsewhere.
