Who else has said this (out loud or to yourself) after a particularly painful excursion or activity involving your kids? For me, it's the time I took both of my boys to a doctor appointment together and basically lost my mind by the time we were done. "I swear I am never doing that again!" I cackled to the woman who took my copay at the desk. I may have even posted it on Facebook.
But of course, some time later, it's like my memory was wiped clean. "Oh, I can bring them both in for that vaccine appointment at the same time," I heard myself telling the receptionist. "Sure, pencil them both in."
Please tell me I am not the only mom who does this. I worry I might drag my kids out to the supermarket after dinner tonight, which is a similarly bad idea. Someone talk me down!!
