What a week (or so) I've had

Yeah. Not fun.

2 visits to a local funeral parlor. Is that the correct term still? It sounds sort of obsene and innappropriate.

Aunt Flo visited last week. Just adding another layer to the emotions of last week.

M has decided to start pooping in her panties again.

It. Drives. Me. Batty!

I had a Mom fit today after she pooped in her pants. M went in her room and cried while K danced around and laughed at me.

On my way out to the car, I cracked my head on the strangely low ceiling in our stairwell. Obviously our house is older and people were shorter in those days.

When some of the moms in my parenting groups comment about how calmly they handle some situations it just makes me think I am a horrible mom. Either they're totally lying or I have issues. Possibly both.

And then I feel terrible because I have yelled at my kids when there are parents who wish their kids were there to yell at, or hope that their kids will be there tomorrow because they are so sick they might not make it another day.

Yeah. That makes me feel like an even worse mom.

Sometimes you just have to cry. And I tend to do that a lot.

Thankfully I have friends to remind me that (at the very least) I'm not the ONLY crazy mom in the world.

4 people like me!:

Oh, dude. You do not have issues. Those moms describe the times they're ABLE to be calm. I have these wonderful, rational moments when I handle a crazy situation well.

And then there's the OTHER 95% of the time.

You're a good mom, and a good person to empathize so closely with the grief of other parents.

Yeah, we crazy moms have to stick together.

Awww Heather. You need to find a way to indulge in something you love, like chocolate?

And know that tomorrow is a new day with potential for good things.

Aside from that, sometimes this mommy thing is horrible and there's no getting around it.

I care about you.

You know I feel your pain with the poop stuff. Ugh. Maybe it's her way of coping with something.

It may seem as if some people are calm at weird times, but that doesn't mean that they aren't screaming on the inside!

Get out and do something for yourself. You'll feel better.
