Is It Thursday Already? THANK GOD!

The Prompts:

Which one will YOU choose??

1.) A song you can’t escape.
(inspired by Stefanie from I’m not much into health food, I am into champagne)

2.) Explain a time there was an emergency. What “mode” did you go into? Freaking out, calm and collected, etc.
(inspired by Jennifer from Momma Made It Look Easy)

3.) Write an open later to a cartoon character.

4.) Write a poem about a moment you would like to relive.
(inspired by Mama B. from Peanut Butter in my Hair)

5.) List 10 things you never knew until you were mom. Mine?
(inspired by Christy from Life With Triplets)

Today I'm writing about option number 5. Please note that some of the ones I feel strongest about may be repeated....

  1. I never knew what a prison camp felt like before. I know now.
  2. I just barely tolerate my own kids and cannot STAND other people's children. (Babies don't count.)
  3. It's not such an easy job after all.
  4. I was never meant to be a teacher. Apparently, "OMG! How can you NOT understand this stuff?" is not much of a pep talk.
  5. I'm a bitch. I'm no fair. And I suck ass. (That last one is my personal fave.)
  6. Sometimes my kids just won't love the same boy for them that I do. Sigh....
  7. How easy it would be sometimes to just beat the hell out of them. Or put a one-way ticket to somewhere tropical to good use. Either one is fine, I'm not picky.
  8. I'm not very good at it.
  9. I started too young, which has probably led to my more than occasional selfishness now.
  10. I love to squeeze little tiny Lemoine bums. Is that wrong?

I like what you say about starting young...I did too, and I have bouts of selfishness for sure! Great list!

Ohhh you've said what the rest of us were too scared to say!! Bahaha LOVE IT.
We started young too! I think we deserve a little selfish helps that while all my friends children are just learning to talk mine are making their own plans for the weekend. I wouldn't have it any other way!

Found you at Mama Kats!

Betty said...

Great list! Love those little bums too! :)

Hey there girlfriend. I know your biggest problem. You don't give yourself enough credit. You have awesome kids (and I'd say that even if I weren't their grandmother!!). So Asia's not a scholar, and is a tad angry with the world. She will find her way and be happy being whatever it is. And Cass. Well. Did a sweeter, kinder person ever walk the earth? And Livvie? She just loves everybody and everybody loves her back. So be selfish - nothing wrong with that – but take some credit for those great kids of your'n.

I love how honest you always are. It's so refreshing. Being a mother IS hard.
