I am not ashamed of my breakdown – it was earned.
And I am sure it will happen again.
My kids will recover from the rant …
and my collapse.
But you will understand
3 ½ weeks ago, youngest with double ear infection
2 ½ weeks ago, both children with strep
1 ½ weeks ago, 1 child sent home with diarrhea
… and then writes with permanent marker on the hardwood floor
7 days ago Mama with migraine
5 days ago, Mama with stomach flu for three wretched days
3 days ago, youngest with strep…
AND ear infection again!
…and raging temperature.
2 days ago Mama has strep
1 day ago Mama is wailing…
and asking questions for which no answer exists
Why me Lord?
When will they be well?
Where is my prince?
Will Cher ever really retire?
Where is Mama now?
In the corner?
Where is the wine?
