I Don't Want To

>> Thursday, June 07, 2007

Today is just one of those days that I don't want to be a mommy anymore. It's a thankless job that doesn't pay, has no benefits and seems to produce nothing.

And I don't care to hear about how lucky I am to get to stay home. Or how I am producing great kids. Or any of that other feel-good crap right now. Because right now I don't care.

I just want to go to my room- alone- and cry.



I can't think of anything to say except...Hi

You needed to call Meritt - have her young one come over watch the kids, and then leave for a while. It's okay - all parents need a break - and you shouldn't have to explain, or justify why... just do it.

These 4 kiddos are driving me nuts tonight.

I am crying with you Jodi--not for the same reasons but they say a good cry is healing for the soul.

You need to read www.suburbanbliss.net - Mommy humor is needed.

I know you don't want to hear it, but it does get better. Before you know it they are all grown and they will be great people... because of you.
