Let’s get this out of the way up front: we all love our kids. We just do. They’re cute funny, smart, awesome, and sweet. That’s a given.
What’s also a given is that being a mom has its less-than-awesome moments. I have yet to meet the mother who makes it through the day without stifling feelings of annoyance or exasperation over some tribulation inflicted by her offspring. We all have little things about being a parent that DRIVE US NUTS. For me it’s clipping little fingernails. Hate it. My kids hate it. I always let it go too long so they have talons. Then they wiggle and squirm while I’m clipping them so it’s a little like wrestling an octopus, if octopi had claws and were willing to rake them down the side of your face. Every time I find myself clipping tiny fingernails, I wonder if it would be acceptable to send a 5-year-old and an 8-month-old to a nail salon so I can outsource the whole thing.
