Looking Up

up , originally uploaded by toyfoto.

Most of the time I have no idea what I'm doing.

The kids. The house. Life in general.

There are times I feel a little lost.

A little overwhelmed.

You can see it on my face.

It's a look all mothers, anyway, should be familar with.

Some people call it the "vacant" or "absentminded" stare. I think it's more a combination of too little sleep and too much information.

But kids can see it ...

HER: Mom. Can I help my friend, E, fill Easter eggs?
ME: Huh?
HER: Can I help E fill Easter eggs?
ME: Uh. ... Where's my coffee?
HER: MA!!!
HER: Easter EGGS!
ME: Coffee!!
E: Oh, your mom is like that in the morning, too, huh?
