I remember watching women…

With their children.

In the mall.

At the market.

Getting a coffee.






I wondered.


Is that all they can say?

Why aren’t they enjoying motherhood?

Aren’t they happy?



Would do this so much better.

You see.




Went like this?




Can I have ice cream for breakfast?”





Can I paint my dolls face with you spensive lip gloss?”





Will you get me a pony?”





Can you find me a hands sum prince?”



Mommy gets a handsome prince first…

Lets be clear about that.



Can you walks away from me…

Your mouth is tinky.”



What the hell?



Can I have a sleepover at Roman’s?’







Whatever it is that you want…


Or are thinking about?






“I jis wans a gives you a kiss Mommy”




So to all you Moms I judged…

    Whew! Brought me back. So easy to pass judgment until we are in the moment ourselves! My mantra was, “No sugar-ever, no TV-ever, no toy guns-ever (& the ones fashioned from twigs-tossed), no fast food, blah, blah, blah. Thank goodness I learned about moderation & balance before I completely lost my mind! I’m hoping to find the rest of it when my son goes to college-HA! Great post.

    I love your bog – it cracks me up. We adopted a little boy (now 5 yrs old) from “Mdova” as he calls it, 2 1/2 years ago. I can relate on many levels. We also have a 15 yr old son, so with two that far apart and constant rough housing, I think – actually, I KNOW – I am losing my mind.
