Somedays I wish I was a man!

Do you ever just wish that you weren’t a woman??!

Like honestly, the way women are made up – over thinking things, stressing about minor things, getting offended, getting hurt at the silliest of things, worry, worry, worrying. Stressing about what weight they are, what colour their hair is / skin is.

Why did that mum not say hello to me this morning at the school gate?

What did the teacher mean when she said he wasn’t great with scissors?

The husband only gave me 1 kiss on the way out the door this morning, have I annoyed him?

Maybe I shouldn’t have said that, maybe she/he took it the wrong way?

Oh, I hope I haven’t offended her, I didn’t mean it to sound like that.

Do you think she’s annoyed at me?

Have the kids had a balanced diet today?

Are they going to get burnt alive in this sun?

Am I stimulating them enough / too much?

I NEED to have ‘such n such’ over for dinner or something soon.

Do they need to see a Dr about that cough?

Do they have friends at school?

Are they accepted by their friends?

Do they behave?

Are they keeping up with what’s expected of them?

The ironing pile is really mounting up it needs sorted ‘now’.

My windows are stinkin’ – must get them cleaned.

The floors need hoovered.

The bathroom needs cleaned.

The bedrooms tidied.

The kitchen floors mopped.

I’ve hardly played with the kids today.

There just aren’t enough hours in the day.

Can we afford to do …x.y and z.

I’m such a bad mummy.

I’m such a bad friend.

I’m such a bad wife / daughter / sister.

Maybe it’s just me. I am a bit of a worrier / stresser / over thinker. A bit of a perfectionist. I can’t help it. It’s just the way I am. There are times it’s a good thing – it means you always try to be the best that you can be, the best that you can be for others. But we women need to remember that, we are enough.

I read this article just the other day and sighed a big sigh at the end of it. I think it’s something I need to read every day http://www.scissortailsilk.com/?s=what+women+need+to+say+daily

One thought on “Somedays I wish I was a man!

  1. Hi Karen,

    I probably have thought of all of these things at some stage too and still do on many days but have learned to calm down a bit over the last couple of years. Having an 18 year old who was the fussiest eater and ate no veg or fruit ever has made me much more relaxed I have to say! He is now 6foot 4 and it doesn’t appear to have done him any harm. He eats most things now!! Now I have the youngest who is following in his footsteps!!

    I don’t fuss the same over my housework either. When they are little I think I worried more about clean floors etc because they were crawling around and picking things up!

    I have to say though I would never want to be a man!! Shaving every day would be enough to finish me off!! I can see you are a great mum, wife, sister and friend by all your blogs on the things you get up to!

    My mum gave me a little fridge note which says:

    “Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you cant make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.”

    So when I feel bogged down with all the stress of housework I try to look at this wee note and think you know what forget the housework it will wait!
