My husband said while we were feeding the fish "I wish I was a fish. How nice it would be to just swim around carefree all day."I know he was joking but I couldn't believe out of all the animals he chose a slimy fish.
This week as I have been trying to work on cleaning the house while watching a extra clingy cranky baby I thought about what animal I want to be.
AN OCTOPUS. Have you seen how many legs/arms that creature has? Not one or four BUT 8!
The things I could do with 8 arms. First of all I would be able to fix my hair while still holding my teething monster. Oh the endless possibilities.
As a first time mom I am having to learn to balance my chores, time with my little man as well as taking care of myself. This past weekend I had mastitis. I was miserable but thanks to my amazing mom I was able to sleep and take care of myself. As I always say being a mom is amazing but you forget what it was like showering in peace or painting your nails. I wont ramble but I will say I need to learn to be more like an octopus.
If I were an octopus I would use all of my 8 arms and laugh at the other creatures who only have two. For now I am a complete mess but I will make due with my two arms.
