Had Better


Had better days…..It didn’t start out bad….until I picked up the kids at the end of school and got a tsunami of negativity thrown at me. Man, I H-A-T-E pick up time after school. “Why can’t I go to Sam’s house…Why can’t I have a playdate…..how come I never have friends over…..I hate swimming, why do I have to swim…..why do I have a tutor, I hate going to a tutor.” We are spending a crap load of money on all the afterschool stuff and I get to shuffle them from place to place. I lost it…… “do you think I’m doing this for me?, do you think I enjoy all this? do you think I want to spend money AND listen to you guys be ungrateful for the opportunities you have been given? do you not think I would rather own jewelry, go on a vacation, experience……a tiny amount ¬†of joy just for me? THIS ISN’T FUN FOR ME EITHER-if that helps any.” -Not exactly a mom of the year acceptance speech! The difference is they were over it the minute they said it and I stew in it for hours…..ARRRGH. Had better days.
