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.
