And Not With A Soda On The Side!

So I have been feeling a little under the weather.

I have had snoot running from my nose, my head has been throbbing, and my ears have been popping, and my child has been a whining.

Just whining about any and everything and well, it just got me to thinking about some things.

Things like how when I am sick, I really want to be catered to by a warm body that has a lot of testosterone running through it and preferably is over the age of 20. Now, I ain't talking about having nobody wipe my nose and my butt (no, I didn't have the runs, but I am just saying). I am talking about having someone fret over me. Make me some tea. Make me some cocoa. Make me some freakin' CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP! Bring me some tissue, you know the soft kind that won't make all them ugly scabs show up around my nose. Someone to ask me if there is anything they can do to make it better, even if they know that I am going to say 'no.'

I also realized that even though I am a great MOMMY.....

That I don't particularly care for being a mommy.

That's the plain truth of it. I mean I love kids. And at one time I wanted 10 of them. Five of my own and I wanted to adopt five. Now, I don't want any. I want a DO OVER.

This is hard work and on most days I don't think it's all that it's cracked up to be.

It's like the saying goes, I can do bad all by myself. Why bring a kid into the equation? Yeah these are things that I should have thought about before pre-creation, and I thought I had thought them through. But, I just don't like being a parent. Now, it goes without saying that if my child wasn't such a brat that I probably would enjoy being a parent, but he is and i don't and I guess that's life, which is why I just do the best I can do.

I am thinking I am gonna have a slide show for you guys tomorrow, so please toon in.

"Life doesn't always give us what we need or what we want, but that should not stop us from doing what we need to or want to do. Most happy people accept what they have and work with what they got."

  1. Oprah had an episode where the audiance of MOMs admitted the ugly dirty truth of motherhood. It was awesome to hear mothers tell the truth of motherhood.

    I'm back from my cruise. You can go here ( http://jenellybean.blogspot.com/2009/08/around-world-in-50-years-bahamas-cruise.html) to read about day one of the trip.

  2. Ain't that the truth. I declare I would not do a do over with having kids. Goodness gracious no. Yeah I got love for them but I honestly don't like them most days.

  3. @JB I am going to see if I can find that episode. it's funny because one of my friends sent me a private message stating it was brave of me to admit i don't like being a parent.. i guess i never saw it that way. i just say it as speaking the truth..but God always has the last laugh..so i will post an update about how i am getting another chance at showing how great a mom i can be

    @QB yeah i think i would just enjoy being the best aunt out there or something.. it's just too much now adays.. and yeah i don't like them on most days esp. when they are speaking to me
