Me

Yes, I like ice cream and wine – not mixed though…

Every once in a while one of my kids gets overtired and cranky.

And MISERABLE.

And DEMANDING.

And RUDE.

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.

Sometimes?

I don't like being the Mom.

However, since I am the Mom I CAN take the car and go and get ice cream.

Alone.

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.

So, sometimes?

I like being the Mom.

  1. So true. We are fond of explaining to the kids that it is absolutely okay if *we* want to have cookies for dinner, because we are grown up, and that is the primary perk of being a grown up. They’re pretty jealous.
