All I Want

for Mother's Day is to pretend that I don't have kids.

Don't want to see 'em.
Don't want to hear 'em.
Don't want to wipe their butts.

Let's start today.

That's exactly how I feel right now! I am shaking because I am so furious at my 10yo.

I think it should be Mother's Day week!! I think Monday through Saturday we shouldn't see them, hear them, or wipe them. Then Sunday we'd reunite and have this lovefest. My house would be so clean and I'd be so well rested!! Can you push for that in Congress?

I actually like seeing them (they're usually pretty cute).

But the hearing them and wiping their butts parts can definitely go.

LOL. Don't be jealous, but I work tomorrow on Mother's Day. I will be relaxing there. Plus, 3 other moms are working too, so we are all going to breakfast by ourselves!

No poop on my hands would make for a splendid mother's day indeed! Enjoy it, sister.

I asked my 6-year-old if he's going to serve me breakfast in bed tomorrow, and he looked at me kinda strange and said "They only do that in the hospital." I think Daddy needs to teach these boys about romance! I told His Royal Highness that I'm supposed to have homemade cards, breakfast in bed, flowers, and a meal in a restaurant and he looked a little worried. I know he hasn't planned anything for me. :( Come on, he gets treated like royalty (thus the title) all year long - give me ONE DAY!!

It's time to ditch the library - hell, ditch books altogether and get one of those Kindle things from Amazon. No more worries about late fees or dog pees.

I was just sitting here reading your blog and totally tuning my kids out, which actually comes quite naturally for me. Sometimes my daughter looks at the screen over my shoulder and yaps, but she's four and can't read. After awhile of repeating herself over and over and then calling her little sister over to look I finally clued in to what she has been saying: "ohhhh, poor kitty. Poor thing. What's he gonna do to the kitty? But whys he got that at the kitty? Poor poor kitty."

Oops. Spose' I better start paying attention....on second thought I'll just send her to bed now. That's my cue.

I was just scrolling through and found this post and I laughed out loud. I can soooo relate! Especially on the wiping their butts part.
