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