Post of reality...

Some days, being a MOM is just plain hard.

Some days, I don't want to cut out the sections in a grapefruit for a pleading child.
Some days, I don't want to get involved in the squabbles of my kids.
Some days, I don't want to play Candyland.
Some days, I want to rub their sweet, little faces in peanut butter until they like it.
Some days, I wish my kids could watch movies ALL DAY LONG.
Some days, I only want to give my kids hot dogs and potato chips for lunch...no fruit, I know.
Some days, I want the last brownie, or cookie, or piece of gum, or, or . . .
Some days, I don't care if they wear the same socks 4 days in a row.
Some days, I wish I could watch movies ALL DAY LONG.
Some days, I want to send my kids to bed without kisses or songs.
If I'm happy with min-wheats for dinner, why aren't you?
Some days, I wish I could impose an ALL DAY reading day.
Some days, I don't want to have to explain the WHY'S of everything.
Some days, I wonder what the house would look like if we never cleaned up.
Some days, I don't want the responsibility that "if momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy."
Some days, a deserted island sounds like HEAVEN.
Some days, I want to make my kids lick up the pee around the toilet so they NEVER MISS AGAIN!
Most days, I love being a mom. 
Some days, well . . .

All I can say is, I'm glad that days are 24 hours and we can start again.  Oh, and laughter truly is the best medicine.

Candy said...

hilarious! and so very true my friend. I swear I've felt the very same things.
I don't want to go see what's on tv and hear about the toy they want, I don't want to make them yet ANOTHER meal, I don't want to get them dressed, I don't want to bathe them or be patient. I want to yell and then eat junk and take a nap.

Thanks for sharing...glad I have a friend in my boat. Wanna sail away together? Go check out that deserted island? Sweet, I'll bring us a snack.

Ill make sure I NEVER miss when I use your toilet...just so you know, or in a hotel room. AND, I won't pee in the hot tub or in my bed, or your bed...just so you know.

Ok I totally laughed out loud when I read this. I can just see you biting your bottom lip. "OKAY HONEY. HERE YOU GOOOO."

for the record. I always get the last "thing." I haven't developed that particular spiritual gift yet...what it is? oh yes. SHARING.

okay maybe sometimes I do...If they sing a song about how awesome I am...

Marilou said...

Amen. Except for the pee thing-that is just gross :)

My favorite was licking up the pee.

Just things morning I ran into the bathroom at full speeds, open the lid, and as I was sitting down only to find pee on the seat! I was ticked off! I had to wipe it real fast and nearly peed all over myself!

just laugh..

Just the other day, Allie was telling me that she doesn't like to use the toilet in her classroom because there's always pee all over the seat. I said, "Yeah, honey, it's probably from the boys-- it's hard for them to aim..." It made me laugh-- our house is so feminine. :)

I love that you can whine in such a comical, socially acceptable way. And YES, we all feel the same way, although our lists might not look identical.
