Thanks Mamas for not making me feel like a selfish momster! I thought for sure I'd get bashed for this post and instead I got laughs and moms who could relate. You guys made me feel much better! I'm glad I'm not the only one who has these moments!!!
Thanks for being groovy chics!
I am having one of those moments that as mothers we don't like to acknowledge that we have.
I want to run straight out my front door with a nice outfit, my makeup bag and hair styling products and go straight to my single girlfriends house and never return. I want the wine and cigarettes I indulged in guilt free in my youth. I want attention from attractive men and women. I want freedom and my own space and I want to make decisions based on what I want and not what someone else needs.
I don't want to be criticized by my tired husband. I don't want to be whined at by my over Easter candied 4 yr old or told by my 7 yr old that the dinner I made is "the worst thing I've ever tasted". I don't want the dog staring at me while I clean up the "horrible tasting" dinner while everyone else relaxes in the livingroom because I am the only one who feeds or lets him out. I don't want to get the snacks and the drinks they will ask for as soon as I sit down. I DON'T WANT TO HEAR THE WORD MOM ONE MORE TIME!
Yes, I'm feeling a little selfish at the moment. Yes, I love them dearly and they give my life meaning and purpose. No, I would never actually do it, but it does not change the fact that as of this moment, more than anything else, I just want out.
Who's with me?!!
