I love honesty. I think as women and mothers we should be more honest with each other. For instance, the other night jack and I were at a Christmas party (sans children. Yay!) and well, it's been a stressful month. Wait scratch that, a stressful year. Anyway, it was a relief to hear other mothers admit that they also find pooh smears on the wall near the toilet paper roll, and have issues with that "issue" with their kids. RELIEF I tell you!! I love my job as a mother, there is nothing I would rather do in my life. But it's hard. It tests me in ways I never thought possible. I am in a state at the moment where it feels like (and I know is not entirely the case) everything I do and say is completely 100% ignored, m-a-d-d-e-n-i-n-g! It's frustrating! It's only a phase I know. but I wanted to write this for any other mom out there who may think that they are alone in feeling frustrated as a mom. Or has heard herself repeat for the 500th time a simple task to be done to just be ignored for the 500th time. It's not rainbows and butterflies, don't think that people's photos tell the story. It tells a moment of a day. We are all human and having lots of moments good, bad, and more times than I can count darn right gross and stinky. 

It's a tough and wonderful job and I have a year round ticket which when it comes down to it, is an amazing blessing and I am honored.

Oh, heavens! The ignoring! Gah!! That makes me insane. Seriously. So I ask a thousand times and end up yelling and my kids look at me like I've gone around the bend.

I totally feel ya! This year has been a hard one for us too. And I'm afraid for the coming one. More changes a head. We do the hardest things in life as Mothers. Hardest job. I feel like a yell all day long. Some-how and som-way the good prevails.

Loved this post. Sorry, I haven't been blogging. I miss it. Not in the mood to deal with technichal issues to be able to download my phone pics to computer. I don't use my regular camera enough.

Merry Christmas, Sarah. I have really enjoyed getting to know you and being apart of you Mommy-Moments and your honesty.

Keep it up!
