Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


I quit

I am going to be one of those moms who goes on strike and puts a sign out front announcing her resignation.

I'm tired of whiny, argumentative children. I'm tired of preschoolers who spill the entire box of cereal because she doesn't want to wait for me to fix it for her while I get her a video to watch. I'm tired of forgotten homework and no one caring but me. I'm tired of it all.

I wonder if anyone would even notice if I just quit caring and trying? Remind me why I try. Someone. Anyone.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Less than two hours later and the pity party has passed. Thank you for your sympathy and indulgence. All I had to do was look at my Christmas cards and see my friends with way more woes and troubles than I have to remind me to be grateful for sassy children.

    You care because you are an exceptional Mother who is putting herself aside to raise healthy well adjusted children! When you feel worn out just remember my friend Stacie, who is celebrating this Christmas with her 4 yr old healthy and cancer free but just 7 months ago buried her 8 yr old daughter. When I think of what she's been through I find myself realizing how good I have it. And I know you realize that, too. :O)

    wow thanks for posting this. I have been so feeling this same way. I love my kids but I just want to run away and quite often. I am glad I am not the only one who feels this way. It makes me feel so much better. And yes I guess I don't have it too bad either at least my children are happy and healthy I am blessed so maybe I should quit my pity party as well.
