Just One (said every mother, everywhere)


Just one extra day.

That’s all I need in a week.

Just one extra day with no one sending me new requests for things they need me to do.

Just one extra day so that I have time to catch up on all the things I didn’t have time to do when I was supposed to do them.

Just one extra hour of sleep.

Just one person to watch the kids so I can go out on a date.

Just one night where the kids sleep in their own beds all night so that I can get one night of uninterrupted sleep.

Just one.
