Here's a few of the best:
- Green Eyed Jealousy monster creates doom
- sick dentist
- stop sending your kids to my house
- random things I did
- Life with a woman is unhappy except for a few moments of joy
I particularly like the last one!
I wonder what they think when they find me.
But by far, the most Googled phrases that bring readers to my blog have to do with Unhappy Moms. I wrote about this before, and due to overwhelming response, felt that it needed a second and even a third post. So, I'm writing this now in hopes that those of us who have gone or are going through those struggles that our babies/toddlers/children/teens/grown children give us, to give some hope to those who are in the midst of what can seem impossible to get through. I'll start here, and you, my dear readers, can add yours in the comments box or on the fanpage if you wish.
My kids make me:
...want to scream sometimes - like yesterday when my toddler dumped my hot chocolate all over my keyboard and homework.
...want to give up, like the time that he dumped the can of paint all over my floor.
...want to leave, like through the many, many struggles with the teen.
...want to lock myself in a castle far, far away when I can't even get a moment to myself and my husband sits there and magically can't hear anything that's going on (and is apparently invisible to my kids, because they never seem to need him for anything!)
Raising kids is hard...and the truth is, we learn as we go. We are in the middle of growing and developing our own systems and organizations when BAM, this kid comes along and throws a wrench into all your plans...life changes forever, and sometimes it can be really, really daunting. But there's hope and there's help. Sometimes just knowing that other people are struggling too is enough to get me through the day.
Oh, and Sue, since I know you're going to comment on how I'm supposed to write fluffy happy stories about the cherub babies and happy mothers pushing their buggies down parkways untainted by cigarette butts and/or beggars....you can easily find it someplace else. Being a mom rocks - and when your little bundle finally arrives, I think you're going to be an AWESOME mom, but I wouldn't be a friend if I didn't prepare you for less than rainbows and butterflies every day.
