Birth was the easy part.

Posted by in Motherhood | 4 Comments

All day long I have been writing a post in my head about how sometimes being the mom sucks. How can the best job of my entire life also be the one that I want to run screaming from? My boss yells at me all day, I never get a sick day, and the food sucks. How much vacation time have I accrued here? On days like today, the two minutes I can get by playing hide and go seek, and hiding in the locked bathroom, isn’t enough.


(Photo is actually from our trip, but I think the sentiment is right.)

And then?

Then she went pee in her potty. Twice. And it was like I had finally seen some progress on a project I’ve been working on for years. A scientific breakthrough – the wire that finally lit up Edison’s lightbulb. And while the pay still sucks, at least I get a bonus occasionally. Two less diapers almost makes up for the fact that she threw yogurt at the curtains today. Almost.

(I guess I’ll keep her.)

    Yeah, I hear ya. We had a rough night the other night (in the midst of the onset of my sickness) and, oh, I thought I was going to die? Today he played with his trucks and bus IN BED with me for about two hours. Complete with hugs, kisses and giggles. It’s like he knows… sometimes. 😉

    Every since Aislinn pee’d on the carpet she doesn’t want to use the potty annymore! I don’t know what to do, so I have left her alone, I am at a loss.

    I didn’t yell at her, I explained nicely that the pee should go ONLY in her potty and that it was “yucky” on the floor, lol


    YAY Ella for using the potty!!!

    I was trying to think of a clever/witty response, but all I can think of in my exhausted state is, I can relate.

    And we are going to have a newborn and a two year old? we both must be nuts, ha! ;o)
