My very good friend got me a coffee mug that says that. “Mommin’ ain’t easy”. Sure as hell is not.
I’m a mom. I yell. I love. I hug. I get annoyed. Frustrated. My kids tick me off. But dang it I still love ‘em. I’m real. I’m happy…most of the time. I’m lazy. I’m not a writer. (why am I blogging?)
I’m hoping to just blab on here, and you guys can relate. Ya feel me? (Seriously, I puke words. Ask my mom and hubs). But instead of filling my family’s ears with my nonsense, I shall share on the web with all of you. Can you feel the excitement!? No? Oh…. Anyway…..
I have a 10 year old daughter who is very smart and oh so dramatic. Seriously. A couple years ago, she read about the Titanic and tsunamis…that night at bedtime, guess who cried because she was afraid of these things. Seriously kid? We live in PA, pretty sure we are safe from tsunamis. And as for the Titanic? Do I really need to say anything about that!? She is quite the worry wart. Oy! But….she is also sweet, kind (mostly, except to her bro), funny, goofy and likes to sing and dance around like her momma. She plays piano and sax. And does soccer in Spring and Fall. She asks sooo many questions that I can’t answer, (hubby! Where are you??) And I can’t wait to see what she becomes when she grows up. I’m sure I’ll have lots of “dramatic” stories to post in the future.
Then there’s the boy. He is 6 and oh so rammy. He’s pure chaos. He plays soccer in Spring and Fall too. Loves his video games and hates when they are taken away. Can be angry, yet oh so sweet and loving. He has quite the sense of humor and the words that come out of his mouth! (not bad ones!!) Ones that we are surprised he knows. And yet still mixes up the ‘F” and “TH” sounds. (Waiting to be a regular in the ER, fingers crossed we are not!)
They get along. They fight. He tends to hit (not cool!). She gets sassy. (Oh great!) They make me laugh because they’re goofballs. And they make me yell because they do not listen. I love their hugs but, alas, they don’t always want to hug….
They fight over the dumbest crap. And I swear they LOOK for something to be mad about or fight over. You all know…. she looked at me, he put his hand in my face. She got one more cookie than me, he has the blocks I was playing with yesterday. (YESTERDAY people!!) He’s going on my Netflix profile (So. What.). She played 5 more minutes of video games. And on and on it goes.
How about when they ask a question…(Can I have candy? Can I sleep over? Can I …whatev.) And the answer at the time is no. So, 10 minutes pass. They ask again. No. 4 minutes pass. Ask again. (ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!!!) I said no, please don’t ask again. 3 seconds pass. They ask again. THE ANSWER IS NO. IT HAS NOT CHANGED. STOP ASKING. I mean, come on. What is the deal??
Oh. OH! And when you are running errands and you feel all nicey nice and get them a toy or something. Then they start whining and complaining they want to go home. And you’re like why did I buy them something. So you threaten to take it back, so they whine/cry some more. But you won’t. You know you won’t take it back. (why do we do this!?)
Ug. There’s more. There’s always more….. Mommin’ ain’t easy.
Some days are great. Some days I just sit on Facebook because adulting sucks. (Don’t tell my husband). But I think we have a good life. I’ve been a stay-at-home mom since #2 was born. And do not look forward to going back to work. They still need me through high school, right!!?? But I wouldn’t trade it for the world…
What about you? Do you feel like “Mommin’ ain’t easy” some days? (Dads too!) Do you have “mommin’ ain’t easy” issues to share? What are some things your kids do that may drive you nuts? Are your little boogers good one minute then ya blink and the crazies come out? Kids…(insert eyeroll).
Until next time….
