I always knew I was a introvert, but couldn't explain to others how I felt or how they could help me.
To a extrovert, introverts may look like hermits that lives in a cabin back in the wood and never wants to be around people. But it's so far from the truth, we love people and being around them, but we do not get re-energized by being in a social setting. We need our time alone, in quietness and with no little hands touching us.
See where I'm going with this, motherhood and introverts not always the best combo.
My kids like to touch me, talk to be, be around me, ALL the time. I love my children, they are a blessing and my joy, but sometime I'm all touched out and want to run around the house saying "don't touch me, don't touch me, don't touch me"
I have to admit sometime I eat my meals after they are in bed, just because I need to have some food in me and not having to fight with them from stealing it. They have also learned to leave me alone while I'm having a cup of coffee before I start school, they understand that mama needs her time alone so she can give more of herself to them.
My desire for them is to give them my best, but I can't do it if I'm drained all the time. How about you, did you ever wanted to hide yourself in the closet from your children?

Have a wonderful weekend
