Today’s Post from Mrs. & the Misc.

I was going to write a wonderfully insightful post today…    but I’m a new mom.

I was going to pump for my daughter three times today at the office…    but I’m a new working mom.

I was going to dry my hair this morning…     but I’m a new mom.

I was going to finish editing all these stories today…    but I’m a new working mom.

I was never gonna be like this when I had kids…      but I’m a new mom.

And I get it now.

The end.

Signed,
Mrs. Irvin
