Tonight



Tonight somehow I ended up with some extra minutes and some boredom and just read a dozen or so blogs. This is something I gave up probably a year ago and now I remember why. I'm going to bed feeling like I'm not "Oh so clever." My house isn't "Oh so clean." I didn't make the "most amazing dinner..(here are all the steps)". I didn't snuggle all my kids on the couches all day and I actually spanked Lizzy for drawing all over her door with her new birthday crayons. I didn't go to the gym and do ten classes and then run five miles. I didn't take any amazing photographs and then spend oh so much time editing them in photoshop. (Ok, well I take THAT one back. We did take 37 amazing pictures and posted them on facebook. And we laughed our guts out while we were doing it.)
Anyway, to all the women out there who let their kids fix their own breakfast (and it wasn't hot and was full of sugar) and then selfishly went out to lunch with a friend, had fast food for dinner and then watched 24.... Here's to us!!

But I like your blog. I've been sad and weird without it all this time. Maybe just post things that make you look insane. It works for me. Plus no one expects the insane to clean their house or be nice to anyone. It's kind of a win win win situation.

I'm happy to hear from you again. I've missed you Melanie. And for the record...you're an "oh so awesome" mom with "oh so cute" kids, and sugar cereal is "oh so delicious".

Wow...I loved your post! Probably because it's how most of my days go. It's nice to be able to read a blog and not feel like a total crap of a mom after I'm done. When I do post on my blog it's usually a little therapy session for me where I blog vomit all of my troubles and then I go read other blogs and their so...perky. So thank you for your post and letting me know I'm not alone.

Oh Melanie, how I just love you! You always make me feel so normal when I feel like I'm surrounded by perfection shining their perfect lights on the boogers hanging from my nose. ;)
