Update: 2 kids at home now. No job, purposely. Going to start writing again on a regular basis. Still parenting from the couch. Currently trying yoga from the couch. At least in my sleep…
I am a hard-working, sometimes very lazy woman (first), wife (second), although my husband might disagree with this order, mother of three (third). My children are spaced pretty far apart which will allow me to appreciate the joys of raising teenagers for 18 years. So far I’m on year 2 & 1/2. (Please send help along with lots of Vodka/beer/wine…) One is out of the house, so technically I’m on year 5 of raising teenagers. But I still want the vodka, beer and wine.
I have an amazing husband who I would like to strangle on a regular basis. Don’t worry he shares the same affection for me. A job which pays the bills allows me to get the occasional manicure/pedicure without raging guilt. Fortunately I have a lovely group of beautiful girlfriends, unfortunately they reside all over the country. Three lovely children, the first one born while I was still a child myself. He is now a teenager and my karma from my teenage years has hit me with a such a vengeance; mothers of teenagers the world over should smile with reaffirming glee. I know it will be a blink of an eye and he will have moved away and I will cry tears of anguish because it went by so quickly…but I’m not there yet, ok? Plus by that time I will have another child entering the teenage years and another one after that, so just do me a favor and look at the paragraph above and send help.
I’m loud, obnoxious, opinionated, stubborn, I never know when it’s time to leave, I have major issues with boundaries, and am loads of fun. Please read my blog and feel better about yourself and/or your parenting skills, but don’t be too terribly mean. Even though I’m all of the above, I have a deep need for people to like me. This has cost me several trips to Europe in therapy money, but the need still persists.
