Every once in a while one of my kids gets overtired and cranky.
Today is one of those days for one of my kids.
And, although I realize that this child needs my love and patience more than ever today, what I'd really like to do is kick their butt out the front door.
But I can't, because I'm the Mom.
I don't like being the Mom.
However, since I am the Mom I CAN take the car and go and get ice cream.
And, I CAN stop on the way home and buy a nice bottle of wine too.
And I CAN even pick out whatever bottle I like.
And although neither of these things will help make my child less cranky, they will make ME happy.
I like being the Mom.
