attempt to work from home with the kids while my husband works his 9-5. Most days are OK, but every so often there are those really tough parenting days that fry my brain and zap my every last will to live.
I have this adorable habit of allowing my frustration simmer on low until it comes to a rolling boil. I then release tension by tossing out a good parenting jab at my poor, unsuspecting husband. I know it’s not mature. I know it’s not fair. I also know it’s not good for our marriage and yet, I do it anyway. Thirteen years of marriage and I’m still jabbing.
I know I’m not the only jabber out there; we all do it at some point. Whether under our breath or right out in the open, we moms say these things almost begging for a fight.
You know as well as I that your kids have a damn great dad. You also know how hard you’re both working to raise happy, confident children. Since the blessings far outweigh the crap, let’s say we focus on the good in each other and burn off the frustration in more productive ways. Easier said than done? You betcha my friends.
Have you ever caught yourself uttering these phrases?
