Our Kids…

We have made it through the first week of summer break and we all have the same look on our faces.  It is so comforting to know I am not alone and I hope it is for you as well.  Our faces tell a story.  A story only moms get.  We love our children but let’s face it, summer break is hard and our kids drive us crazy.  It’s OK.

Our faces show the rest of the world~

Our kids are slowly killing us.

Our kids don’t allow us to shower in peace.

Our kids cause us to buy alcohol by the cart full.

Our kids make us forgetful.

Our kids make us walk out of the house looking like we crawled out of bed.

Our kids make us look like we haven’t slept in years.

Our kids make us react in ways we never thought we would in public.

Our kids make us stoop to levels we need to do to survive.

Our kids make our pets cling to us for safety.

Our kids make us question our intelligence.

Our kids make the workers at fast food places and coffee shops know us by name.

Our kids make us know all the shows on Disney.

Our kids make us have conversations about how we hate the shows (or secretly love them) on Disney.

Our kids make us need a strategy to get through each day.

Our kids make us question what did we do wrong?

Our kids make us hide in the bathroom, laundry room, or our car for some peace.

Our kids make us hate cooking.

Our kids make us use more cuss words in one sentence than should be allowed.

Our kids make us say things in sentences that most adults don’t ever think they will say (“Johnny stop touching ____”).

Our kids make us count down some days until its time for bed (us or them).

Our kids make us do so many things we never thought we would ever do. But bottom line, we love them and they do make our days interesting.  There are times when we are ready to strangle them but holding back laughter at the same time.  We are moms.  And we will survive summer!
