Parenting Envy Rage or P.E.R.


is it bad that I want to punch her in the face ??

I omitted some names BUT this is a post I just read -and I am not kidding when I say I want to punch her in the face -or move in with her one of the two ..


A bad nightmare woke ( child ) up at 2:45, and he stumbled into our room looking for consolation and cuddles. After I brought him back to his bed, I tossed and turned in mine for what seemed like much too long.  At 3:33 am, I decided to give up the fight and wake up for the day.  Might as well be productive, so I got to work and by 7:15 am I had…

…completed three loads of laundry (using my homemade laundry detergent, of course!).

…prepared a batch of homemade yogurt.

…scrubbed the bathrooms.

…sorted and organized the countertop paper piles that had been stressing me out for weeks.

…ordered school supplies for the upcoming school year.

…attended a hard-core class at my fitness studio.

…taken care of grocery shopping for the week.

By the time I came home from the gym and store, Child # 2  was awake.  She and I had some quiet time together this morning, a rarity as all three kids usually wake up together.  I prepared a blueberry breakfast shake for us to share, and we quietly enjoyed it in the growing morning light.

Once everyone was up and fed, we took a family walk to the neighborhood farmers market, picking up lettuce, radishes, beets and cookies.  We made it home in time for Vivian’s nap, so I put her down while Chris took the kids to see a movie.

With a quiet afternoon in my sights, I suppose I could have rested a bit.  But, that’s just not in my nature.  With a part-time job, three kids and my cloth diaper businessI just don’t have the luxury of a lazy Saturday. So, I got to work cleaning the kitchen, dining room, floors and and living room using all-natural homemade cleaning products and a little elbow grease.  I know I’ll rest easy tonight in a clean house!

Now, I’m headed out for a date with with Hubby  while my cousin  watches the kids.  I might be exhausted, but a quiet night out with my most favorite person in the world is too good to pass up. 

FUCK RIGHT OFF MARY POPPINS and see you at the PTA meeting ?
