Who’s more tired?

Why is it that mommy can never be as tired as daddy? Every time I turn to my husband after a long day of dealing with 3 children and say I’m so tired he says”you!?” Ya me!!!!!!You sit at a desk. I only sit to give the baby a bottle or put her to sleep. Otherwise i am reaching up to get juice, bending over to wipe the floor, bending over to pick up food, bending over to pick up toys, bending down to look for the pacifier the baby launched under the bed, lifting up one kid into the car, lifting up the other kid into the car, (one of them is not gonna cooperate and as they throw themself to the floor i have to reach lower and they magically know how to make themselves heavier) lifting the infant carrier, carrying the bags, breaking up fights, holding up the bottle, lifting the spoon, lifting the laundry basket, carrying the hampers, turning knobs, opening jars, changing batteries, stirring the pot, pouring the juice, scrambling the eggs, cleaning the spilled juice, wiping the face, wiping the face again, putting baby into high chair, taking her out, putting her on change table, opening drawers, lifting legs, blocking the roll over, walking to the bus stop, walking back. I just created the mommy workout! And that was only the 20 min workout. The short version.

You tell people what to do all day and they actually do it. I wake up before you, fall asleep after you, even wake up in the middle of any ounce of dream I am able to get in there and you are the tired one? Maybe I forgot to do math homework tonight.
