a nice spiritual post for sunday


after a morning full of little boys pretending to be puppies, a session of finger nail and toe nail cutting, and a round of haircuts followed by bath time, i not so calmly announced to my husband that i am leaving. i am out of here. i am going to vegas. i am going to be a stripper. it is all poles and lap dances from here on out. that has to be more rewarding than all i have done this morning---which has sucked all the energy right out of me. the boys were not even being bad. they were just being little boys. my husband found this statement quite amusing and, being the supportive man that he is, reassured me that while he firmly believes i would be an amazing stripper, maybe, just maybe, i was being a bit dramatic. so i am still here. don't panic. and i love being a mom. just sometimes not so much.

I'll meet you in Vegas but I am just going to lay by the pool and drink pina coladas

I'll join you on the poles- i feel the need to mix things up a bit also - step out of my comfort zone if you know what i mean!

Oh- the thankless job of motherhood! Good news though- I hear pole dancing is a great core workout!

Anne: HI! Loved this post. I think we have all felt this way at one time or another. My favorite was "sucked all the energy right out of me". How true! But I know that you are an awesome mom! While pole dancing may have been your calling in life, I am sure that Sy and Soren are your passion!! I miss you!!

I had a day like that today. After the seventh load or so of laundry, and everything else I had to do, I thought I was going to explode. The thought of having another baby to get that nice peaceful hospital stay crossed my mind, but then I remembered that is one more to chase after!

Kudos to all the mommies out there! I admire y'all soooo much! (Yeah, I'm a mommy, too, but I had only one to deal with!)
