There is not much that can stop a mother, we do what needs to be done no matter what. But, we all have a weak spot.
Speaking for myself being sick is my Kryptonite.
The kids seems to have extra energy when mother as very little, and for some reason my body acts like a uncooperative toddler and my brain like a mother that won't back down.
Here is an example (Imagine me with spring allergies, a common cold and adding to the mix being THAT time of the month. Yes oh joy!)
Brain That pile of dishes won't clean it self, better get up and clean them now before they get dry and crusty
Body but this chair is so comfy.
Brain the longer you wait, the longer it will take to clean them.
Body Ok Ok, lets go. See I'm standing up, putting one foot in front of the other. Look a comfy couch, must lay down NOW. Eyes getting heavy, very heavy.
Brain don't you dare are fall asleep now!
Body I'll show you brain. Here is a headache.
Brain haha, you can't stop me. Did you forget to pay that bill that is do in 2 days, what are we eating for dinner, did you reminds the girls to feed the fish, did you got the laundry out of the washing machine, did you did you did you????
Body and Brain : Girls it's NAP TIME!!!!!!
How about you what is your Kryptonite????
