Has Motherhood Made Me Lazy?

I’ve been beating myself up a little lately.  New Year’s resolutions aren’t in full swing.  The house is still a mess, dinner is always a scramble.  Sure I’ve been to the gym, but not as much as I thought I’d be.  I panicked, “Oh my gosh!!  Has motherhood made me lazy?!”

I used to be one of the hardest working people I knew.  Others had skills I admired, even envied, but hard work and toughness….those were right in my wheelhouse. I’d spend 14 hours at the office, then 2 more at the gym.  Now it feels like a colossal pain-in-the-patooty just to pack-up a toddler in her winter coat and head out to her big brother’s practice.  When I have a bit of time away from these little darlings I’d like to think I’ll go exercise, or write, or socialize…or maybe get a hair-cut.  But really, when I have a bit of time away, I just want to sleep!

And then it hit me:  motherhood hasn’t made me lazy.  Motherhood has made me tired.
