Sentiments that Hit Home

My sentiments EXACTLY!

Sometimes as a mother the repetition of my domestic duties drive me to the edge of insanity.   If someone were to record the dialog that I create in my head as I’m doing chores I would probably be absolutely horrified… as would everyone else.

Pinterest was clearly created to give voice to my thoughts, and bring a sense of validation to my life.  A few of my recent favorites:

The other day I told my daughter to get herself her breakfast and she looked at me and said:

“That’s your job.”

“FAMILY MEETING!!!”  I screamed….

Needless to say we are all very clear now on roles and responsibilities.

Now my children can repeat after me:

“My mom’s job  is to stay sane while teaching me to be self sufficient, gracious, well mannered, and trustworthy.

There is something about the old time photo’s paired with my own stream of consciousness that I just find incredibly refreshing….
