So. Very. Tired.

I have been so exhausted lately that I cannot even begin to bitch about my kid because I just don't have the energy.  I am pretty sure that the thick gray of winter is sucking the sunshine and happiness out of my soul (what little I had in there).  Anyone want to tell me a story about their spawn?  I am a fantastic listener (reader).


  1. I'm so glad I found your blog. I feel I'm not alone. I live in the sunshine state, yet feel the cloud cover following like I'm Charlie Brown. My 2 1/2 has been getting up at 1 AM, 3 AM, 5AM is actually kind, for the past month. Because both she and I are sleep deprived we've had plenty of tantrums, (yes both of us) to go 'round. Today was fun. Still potty training, we went to the opening of a new park. I asked if she had to go and she grunted, then turned around, her pants were soaked. It was lovely dragging my daughter kicking and screaming off this sparkly new equipment while some of the parents gawked and whispered. Because of course their children are perfect.

  2. I lived in Chandler, AZ for Lila's first year. To say that the Moms there were perfect, wealthy, snobs is to understate how "perfect" they all seemed. That was when I started this blog. Because I fucking HATED trying to fit into those little molds that I knew I would never be able to shove my kid into. When we moved back to Upstate NY to a far more blue collar area it was a total relief because the urban decay was better matched to my mothering style.

    You are not alone. The mothers that act like everything is wonderful all the time are simply assholes. :-)

  3. I agree - mothers that act like they have it all together and their children are just so perfect are complete assholes


I love comments. What did you think?
