The pictures above are obviously of my family, and I am blessed to have them all. Now, having said this …. Doesn’t it piss you off royally when you just need a day to re-group and Johnny Sunshine says,”cheer up, look at all you have to be grateful for!” It does for me. I want to look at that person and say,”yes, I obviously am blessed – however – I forgot to take my f*cking happy pill today!” It’s just one of those days.
I had to parent my youngest child today! Absolutely hate the pain of having to do that. He is a good kid, but he made a mistake and needs to learn from it! I think mine actually knows very well how hard it is for me. His POWERS go something like this, he gets angry and storms off. I give him time but HOLD my ground. About an hour later, he will come to me and say I love you Mom and you were right. I’m not sure anyone can possibly understand how much this means to me. It really does mean something to raise a young man who will become a great man. By great, I mean his morals are in fact, he has empathy for others, he’s kind, sweet to girls that one day become women and he will be a great husband! He’s laid back and doesn’t have to stress too much because he knows the difference between wrong and right and will use those tools to become successful and happy.
My full time parenting will come to an end as he enters his senior year of High School and then is off to college! It makes me cry a lot. It makes me do a happy dance a lot! Only Mom’s understand these are some very complex emotions. Throw in menapause and you are a ticking time bomb!
So, I had a bad day. It won’t kill me, I’m the survivor. Born that way. The Cat with nine lives who will land on her feet no matter what! All phrases I’ve been told, and I couldn’t agree MORE. Happy HUMP day!
