Today I had one of those evenings where if you offered me Chinese food and Pepsi in exchange for my kid I would have accepted it and thanked you dearly while waving him off with a smile.
For a while I sat thinking fuck I’m a horrible parent, like who even finds their own kid annoying? So I posted a status on fb and as it turns out I am in fact simply human and not a bad mom.
And that if you think that feeling this way makes me a horrible parent, well then you can’t sit with us cause my tribe thinks you’re a judgemental bitch.
So hey, listen closely… From one real mother to the next.
You are fucking human and becoming a mother doesn’t change that so yes you are allowed human emotions, that includes wishing bedtime would hurry the fuck up!
Have that fucking glass of wine or rose tea and marvel in the fact that there’s no police tape and chalk marking off a crime scene.
Because sometimes that’s a victory all in itself.
And today? Today I’ll take that.
