A funny...

One of my big beefs with moms, is that they lie to other moms and tell them how wonderful motherhood is. I think if we quit looking at motherhood like this magical, wonderful experience, we will have a lot less guilt about our abilities and disabilities as mothers. Can I get an Amen???

I heard this somewhere, but, I can't remember where, and can't find it again. It was a comedian, but, I have no idea who...

Before I had kids, and I would see a mom wildly yelling at her kid, saying things like, "What's wrong with you? You just wait until we get home, you're gonna get it!" I would immediately think, That poor kid. What did he do to deserve that. That woman is a witch.

Now that I'm a mother, I see it completely differently. When I see a mom, frazzled, and crazy yelling at her kid, I think, What did that little shit do to that poor lady??
