Guest Post from Megan at Absolute Mommy

7 Jun

Hi Everyone! My friend Megan from Absolute Mommy is here to hang out for a bit today. I asked her to do a little guest post while I’m in Vegas for work. Yeah, while I’m there on stage in front of hundreds of people…on a stage…100’s of people…giving a presentation…speechless…or passed out. One of the two. But, seriously, I hope not. I’ll let you know how it goes when I get back. But, for now, enjoy Megan’s post. I love her down to earth, tell it like it is attitude. She’s great!

Hi, I’m Megan from Absolute Mommy, and I’m super happy Natalee invited me over today.  Natalee and I met at Elevate.  We played this icebreaker game of celebrity couples and I was David Beckham and she was Posh.  Yeah, it was pretty awesome!  So I was so excited when she asked if I’d like to guest post.  Well, of course anything for my wife.  If you haven’t met me, let me tell you a little about me, I’m a semi-SAHM from Fresno.  I love all things pop culture, have an unhealthy addiction to Instagram (@absolute_mommy), and I love my iPhone as if it were a third child.  If you like what you see here you can find me at my blog. Thanks for indulging me in doing what I love most, blogging, guest posting, and making new friends!!

I’m a desperate housewife

 
I’m a desperate housewife.  Every day.  Consistently.  It doesn’t take much for one to become a desperate housewife.  It’s not as glamorous as it sounds.  There are no hot lawn boys.  There are no nannies.  There are no personal chefs.  No my friends, in my neighborhood, the desperate housewives are desperate for other things…
I’m desperate for a minute.  To myself, by myself, in other words alone.  Did I mention I want to spend time alone?  Lately I can’t even pee alone.  You know what I’m talking about.  There is not one spare minute where I’m not up to my eyeballs in parenting.  So please pretty please a moment to pee, breathe, eat, sigh, read one stinking line of a book???
I’m desperate for my own housewife.  Yes, that’s right.  I want a housewife at my own disposal.  I hate housework.  I loathe housework.  My house is constantly messy.  Dr. Seuss books in the pantry.  My Little Ponies on the kitchen table.  As we speak a kitchen table covered in crafting, a laptop, and tonight’s McDonalds.  I could pick up all of this and put them in their places. But I know it will find it’s way back out into our living room, and then back to the table. Really why bother? As you can see I need a housewife to call my own.
I’m desperate for one good night’s sleep.  Just one.  Where I can sleep uninterrupted and wake up on my own.  I don’t want to hear crying babies.  I don’t want my 3 year old alarm clock to start whining about why I left her in her room, ALONE.  I want to go to sleep, IN MY BED, and wake up when I want.
I’m desperate for a day off.  A mental health day if you will.  A day to read a book, watch a Kardashians marathon, sleep the day away, and blog.  A day to save my sanity.  I want a day to do what I want to do, and not have to think about anyone else but me.  Sound selfish?  Sure it does.  So what, I’m desperate.
I’m desperate to be good at being a mom.  Desperate to be semi-good at being a housewife.  Desperate to be my best self.
I’m a desperate housewife, who is grateful to have things to be desperate about. Thankful that one day I’ll get those moments alone.  Those days to myself.  The good night’s sleep.  One day I’ll miss being a desperate housewife.  Especially since I’ll have to find new things to complain about…
