Pass on the GOOEY for a minute...

Sometimes I come on here and it's so loved up on kids and being a mom.. that I want to throw up.. That sounds bad.. I don't mean it too... I love my kids.. I was brought to tears yesterday when my son who hated the fact that he had to start after school care, said he liked it.. Thank you Jesus.. and I LOVE being a mom.. I have ZERO complaints ...

HOWEVER... There's some moms that ONLY talk and share about the sweet moments and the bonding moments and the love and the blessings...

Can we seriously get real for a minute... Can we understand that all that goes without saying for a minute.. I don't mean STOP sharing all the great moments and milestones, I lOVE them.. I do.. But, I feel like as moms, a lot of the time it's harder than it is beautiful and I would love it if we could all come here and talk about that too..

I'm not saying to be negative and whine and complain.. I'm saying to Vent.. to let it out, in a place where there is NO judgement from people who understand..

We often talk about the MOST favorite thing about being mom.. let's flip it today.. just for for fun.. lol...

What is your LEAST favorite thing??? Sleep, constant need? The guilt? The smells?

My Least favorite? Today.. is the needs of my kids.. to find a shoe, to find their favorite pencil, hair clip, book, shirt.. and then they get annoyed with ME that I didn't wash their favorite shirt for them.. overnight... Oh, excuse me for working and feeding you and making sure you have SHELTER by working..

Needy little monkeys.

Ok ladies.. let's have it.. let it out.. talk to me..

      for me it's the never ending schedule. It doesn't matter if it's a weekday, weekend, or holiday. My baby still needs to eat, nurse, and sleep around the same times everyday, which means I have to make time for it EVERY DAY. It would be nice to have a weekend where I could do whatever without having to plan it all out around baby needs.

      I also dislike the crabby days. The days where my daughter is fussy all day because of something I can't fix or can't identify. It's hard to listen to the whining all day, it really puts me on edge!

        my son, griffin (8) is such a jerk to his sister. He is seriously like a light switch! There is simply no reasoning with him!!! The next complaint is that the second I sir down to eat at any given time, my 3 month old wakes up and demands to be fed while I am forced to sit there and stare at my food while it gets cold. Ugh!

        NICOLE!!! I know... on both sides.. I didn't sit down and eat until like a year ago and I still get up a bunch...

        My son is 9 and same.. He can be SUCH a prick to her.. just the attitude or telling her she's wrong.. I'm like, "SHES 7!!!!" let her mis pronounce that word.. back OFF... But then he can be so nice and protective.. siblings.. ugh..

          Right now, my worst thing about being a mom is the care I have to give Connor. I love him to death, but man does he need a lot of care. Between feeding him every three hours through a tube, that I have to set up and take down, the IV antibiotics every 6 hours, trying to take care of my house, and chasing the two and one year old around, along with playing referee between my husband (whos the biggest kid of them all) and my 6 year old, I am exhausted. I get an hour of sleep in between meds and feedings. That totals about 4 hours of broken sleep every day for me. Next week is so full of appointments, and I also pump milk every three hours as well. I am run ragged and we have only been home a week.

          We live in Los Angeles, CA. I'm a writer, comedian, actor and single mom of two. Parenting is hard. I try to keep a sense of humor about it all and find the find the funny... in what is most likely NOT funny (i.e. boogers, meltdowns, homework, etc.).
