1.) We are not boring. We just got knocked up, made the decision to keep another human being alive….mind you they come with blood, bones and souls. So, the task of raising a healthy child in THIS ridiculous world, and making sure they come out descent…..takes up every inch, space and crawl space of our lives. BORING……you know what you can kiss.
2.) I have had to inhale and exhale so many times, to avoid having the doctor write up a prescription for volume. Again, raising a human being means….they come with their own minds, their own annoying habits, their tantrums…..and NO, they do not always go with the flow.
3.) I have had water with remnants of feces and piss splash all over me, because my baby boy poops like a machine gun firing off, and clogs the toilet every time.
4.) We sweat over that stove, to see noses scrunch up to what we’ve cooked….after standing in grocery lines behind couponers, old people, the ones who smell like hot fermenting garbage, the bad kids whose parents think they’re cute, and you have the nerve to scrunch your nose up? You better eat or you go hungry. Old school is BACK! There is no cooking 2 meals.
5.) I am a single mother, handling my emotions, bouts of loneliness at times, cooking 3 meals a day, sometimes more, cleaning, Being desired but unable to show the same desire back, because my life, by choice, it is about my child. I do not get a lot of breaks, I cry a lot, I get exhausted, I get moody, I wonder…”why” most of the time, I have to build up my child’s confidence, while maintaining my own…..No, we are not bored or boring. We are just extremely responsible for “life”.
I almost cried and threw my computer against a wall while typing this. 😀
