My “I’ve never met her in real life, but if I did people better watch out cause we’re way too compatible” friend Katie always does Secret Mommy-hood Confessions on Saturdays and I’m feelin’ like confessing today too. Secret Mommy-hood Confessions is from Kim’s great blog and so here is my confession of the week.
Never ever any more.
And? If I hit the lotto, one of the first things that I would do is either hire a chef or subscribe to some kind of food service.
Now, I love cooking. I really do. Remember when I was blogging as a stay-at-home mom and I would always post recipes and photos of all of my cuisine masterpieces.
But now? I’m teaching full-time, 22 6 & 7 year-olds and I am out of the house from around 6:45 a.m. to about 5:30ish p.m. I pick up my two-year old, make dinner, grade homework or tests or go over lesson plans and work my second job (writing articles for people for money) and omg I’m exhausted.
So, yes, I love to cook, but right now? The reality is, I’m too tired to cook.
And that’s where the Mommy Guilt kicks in.
I feel bad that I don’t want to cook.
Isn’t that what Mommies and Wives do? They cook for their families?
Sure, my husband can cook. But his hours are wonky (yes, I said wonky) and we never know if he’s coming home at 7 pm or 11 pm.
I feel bad that I want to go through the Jimmy John’s drive-thru or hit up Panera Bread for their “you pick two” or GOD FORBID go to McDonald’s for a carb-infused meal.
So that’s my secret Mommy confession. I don’t want to cook anymore.
I’m done cooking… but not really cause I know I have to.
But it really sucks and I wish I felt good or okay ordering out more often than not.
