Confessions of a Suberban Mom
I have a dirty little secret! There, I said it! But before I confess my sinful stunt I must warn you, it's deviously clever! If you're one of those "perfect" moms (you know who you are)... just walk away! Haters aren't welcome here! I'm a good mom, no wait, I'm a fabulous mom! But truth be told I have very little patience (try NONE) between the hours of 4 and 7 pm, Monday through Friday! The whining and screaming and fighting oh my! Now on most days I deal but on this day while on the brink of total insanity... I experienced one of those light bulb moments. It was divine I swear! I need a cage! I corralled my offspring into the van, buckle them in for safety of course and popped in a DVD. We have errands to run I told them! LIES! Mommy will be right back... I gotta go pee... MORE LIES! I walked back into the house, poured myself a glass of Cabernet and sat on the floor surrounded by millions of plastic toys. I sipped my mommy juice slowly, caressing the glass and thinking to myself O.M.G. this is my life! After 20 minutes of quiet I got up, told the kids I changed my mind about running those oh so important errands! Chaos resumed within seconds. Some may find this unorthodox method of parenting lame and inadequate but to this day, I laugh out loud at my sheer genius! I ROCK!
