Be honest.

I was totally going to blog about the wonderful field trip I went on with Buddy and his school today. Then all craziness broke out here.

So, instead, I'm going to complain about being a mom.

Because, it is hard.

And I don't like hard things.

This week, I have honestly been disliking this particular job I signed up for 5 years ago. Why? Who knows. Maybe it is the fact that Dan has been pretty absentee lately with the whole basement being finished thing. I spend all day and all night every day and every night by my little lonesome then head to the basement to work. Props to all you single moms out there!

Anyho, I just want to go skinny dipping in a lake by myself right now. It would be cold but also completely reminiscent of college days past. I used to be crazy like that. Now I am a whiny mom.

Fess up, ya'all! Have you ever had times like this? If you say no, you are either a killer mom (call me if you want two more [I'm keeping Champers cuz he is in the adorable, cute, and easy stage]) or you are a liar, liar pants on fire.

I'm so with you! Oh heavens, how I love my kiddos but it is BY FAR the toughest job in the world and can really get you down sometimes!

If I knew where you lived, I'd bring you chocolate. Right now.

Can I get an AMEN!
I will go with you to the lake, but I will wear my swimsuit, I might scare the fish! I love being a mom, but that is why I have a part time job at night, that is my escape and my mommy time, sad but true! I love making new friends, thanks for the nice comment! love love love Fat Jacks, I enjoyed working there, mostly for the free food. I look forward to reading more about you. you are hilarious

Amen to that! It's amazing I still have hair after these past few days!...teething sucks! I have a huge migraine tonight from my little princess crying all day! Sounds like it's time for a girls night! I am not running on all cylinders and I need to be recharged!

I hear ya. If I don't get a girls night out at least once a month, I would go crazy!!! Being a mom is the best but the hardest job I've ever had!

I hear ya! It's a tough and demanding job. It's a good thing there are those moments of motherhood joy and bliss (even though they may be far and few between sometimes), otherwise I don't know think there'd be a lot of us moms left. Good luck with your basement and flying solo with the parenting stuff so much. Hang in there! You're awesome and it won't be like this forever.
