The last time you saw your sense of shame, you were lying on a gurney in the delivery room and a group of people were hunched over your privates. Ever since, you’ve grown bolder. More uninhibited. More… desperate. You say and do shameless stuff, especially around your kids, that you never imagined you had in you.
Of course, there’s also the fact that you are tired and not always rational. Some days, you will do anything to get your kids to behave/eat/sleep/leave you in peace. Some days, you will do anything just to get by.
These are the tactics plenty of us moms resort to. Not proudly. But, heck, they’re good.
