Overview

Every once in a while, I look around and wonder what in the hell happened to me. I have three children. I have one dog and one cat. There is a fence around my backyard. I own the house I live in, as well as the aforementioned back yard. I drive a minivan. So, at least once a day, I find myself wondering just when I stopped being me and turned into the “mom.” This leads of course, to wondering who I was before I was the mom. Was there a time in my life when I didn't have anyone to take care of? I can't remember.
I love my children, I am proud of them. I have their names tattooed on my back. I smoked while I was pregnant. That's not something that I am proud of, but I did. I did not however, drink or take drugs. I do not abuse my children, neither physically or mentally. I curse around them, I try not to, but I do it. I do not, however, curse at them. I lie to them, sometimes for my own amusement. I deflect tough questions, and let them come to their own conclusions.
I suppose everyone has a parenting style that suits them. I have gone from the perfect mom in the first year of my oldest daughter‟s life to a being a “real” mother. Parenting magazine still has a place of honor in the bathroom, but it is no longer my bible. It is in the bathroom because that is the only room in the house that where I can hide from my children. Seriously, I turn on the fan and pretend that I can't hear them through the door. It's awful I know, but sometimes I just need to breathe.
"They just love you Honey" My husband tells me.
I'm sure they love me, I am their mother, but I think it is more likely that they have secret meetings in the morning while I am still asleep. I believe that they devise a strategy for the day, every day.

Started reading this and could not stop. It was like reading all of the insanity that happens in my household. I mean seriously my 4 year old daughter is dancing and singing around my completely disheveled living room and I thwarted her plans earlier for making a wall mural. I love how this mother keeps an excellent sense of humor in her writing as she is explaining what a real parent is like. I would love to see more of these as her children get older. This book will have you rolling in laughter at times due to the fact that if you have kids you know how crazy they can be. Love it!
