New Disorder

Being little kid's mother is like having a small, destructive shadow that sings Happy Birthday all day long, argues about everything and is constantly trying to touch your face.

It's a lot like mental illness.

Maybe Motherhood should be listed as a disorder in the DSM-IV.

It is in the DSM. They just call it Borderline Personality Disorder.

The DSM-V is coming out soon I believe. Perhaps a petition is in order?

Seriously - this may be your best blog entry ever. It is so good, I had to quote you in my facebook status. I have 3 "Little Kid"'s...I feel ya!

At least your destructive shadow isn't trying to whip your boob out in public and constantly groping you. Chay has an obsession with my boobs and will yell as loudly as possible in the middle of the grocery store, "Mommy, I love your boobs!" while reaching for them. Its horrifying.

So I feel your pain.
