The difference between a good mother, and a bad one

Sometimes you just want to sit your kid(s) down and say “Look, you’re being an asshole.”

Don’t lie, you know you’ve thought it.

Like when you’re on the third time out in, like 15 minutes? Or when the toys you just cleaned up are once again chucked in every direction? Or when that kick comes this close to your face?

The difference between a good mom and a bad mom is that the good mom keeps it to herself. She’ll smile and try to distract. She’ll be stern and do one.more.time.out. She’ll kindly remind her baby boy that kicking hurts mommy and we don’t want to hurt anyone, ever.

I love my babies. More than life itself. But sometimes? Sitting down and getting some true, honest feelings out really feels good. Even if it’s just on the internet.

Livin the poor life with the typical american family; husband, baby, and dogs. Happy to tell it like it is, the ins and outs of being a young, hip mom can be more hilarious than one might think ;)

    I found your blog through the NoBloPoMo list, and I’m really looking forward to reading some of your older posts. As for today’s post, I totally agree. I have a 2.5 year old, and we’ve had those days – heck we had one last night. Vent away, we don’t mind 🙂

    Amen to that. I’ve had a full week of that with both kids. It’s hard to remember not to be a jerk right back and that I’m actually the adult because holy crap, they make you crazy sometimes!
