This summer seemed to go by so fast, but that doesn’t mean that my random thoughts weren’t there. In fact, I may have had more that were brought on by the heat, lack of sleep and the excessive “quality time” that I had with my children! I was also “blessed” with some, almost unbelievable, random events!
Random Thoughts and Events from the Mad Mommy!
2. I, literally, flushed over $500 down the toilet at the zoo this summer.
Yes, indeed. I was in a public restroom at the zoo, finished my business, stood up, button my pants, turned to flush the toilet and right as I flushed, my keys fell out of my pocket and disappeared!
I am standing in the stall saying, “Oh my god, oh my god” and my mom is outside of the stall with the kids saying, “What’s wrong?!”.
Long story short?
It’s expensive as hell to have keys made, on the spot, for these new fangled “coded” vehicles. Always make sure you have a spare made immediately!
3. I realized this summer that no matter how distracted you THINK your child is, he will still hear you spell a naughty word during a phone conversation. I also realized that I can no longer spell things in front of my son because he knows how to sound out words.
4. A mom cannot survive on coffee and ibuprofen alone and if she does, she will suffer from icky tummy syndrome. Do yourself a favor and eat one of the untouched chicken nuggets from McDonald’s that your 4-year-old HAD to have because she was STARVING!
5. Everybody started posting pictures of back to school and how they were going to miss their kids and I’m looking at my Facebook newsfeed like, “It’s ok, you can have mine!”.
6. I am at the point where I am barely making it through the day with my kids now.
7. I also told my entire family to F-Off this summer. I am so sick of being their doormat. They only call me when they need something and they always need something, but what I need doesn’t matter. The only one I will still talk to is my mother, but I’m still mad at her too!
8. Everyone tells me that I need to take a moment for me. Moms need a moment to themselves. I, literally, cannot even pee alone. How am I supposed to take a moment for myself?
9. Sometimes, I just want to run away and have a day or two completely to myself. Nobody else, just me. Unfortunately, that is impossible because there is no one that can watch my children.
I have hired people in the past. One tried to indoctrinate my son and the other one had a mental breakdown, so you can see how that went.
10. My typical day is long, crazy, full of arguments, meltdowns, yelling, fighting and love. At the end of the day, somehow, it is still there.
