I can admit that I am just not that great of a mom. Really. I am not looking for kudo’s or atta girls, or yes you are’s. I just know that I am an OK mom and that on some days, a decent mom, and other days…well…I won’t put the words in print of the kind of mom I can be.
Then there are days, like the other day….when it becomes necessary to either;
1- medicate me
2- restrain me
3- ship me far, far away
Like a lot of houses, we have been full of sickness and crankiness.
Unlike a lot of houses; I don’t deal well with it. And on one particular day, I just let everyone fall apart.
Started with kid number 4.
So what did I do?
Close your eyes. What do you see?
That is what I did. And let them all cry.
Then I walked away, poured a glass of wine and prayed.
I checked on a friend whose house is also full of sick and cranky kids. I asked how things were. Here is her response;
And so they all lived to see another day.
Thank you God.
