For all of the snuggles, cuddles and kisses that a Momma receives,
there certainly seem to be an equal amount of pouts, whines and
eye rolls that shoot our way.
A mom’s job of pissing someone off is never done.
They honestly think we enjoy it.
They think we’re sadistic monsters sucking all of the fun out of life.
Because…we’re always stuck doing the miserable things no one else
wants to do. So, ‘of course’ we want our dearest loves to be miserable too!
One giant sad and miserable family.
Don’t they know that is what we’ve dreamt of since we were little girls?
To be a drop dead GORGEOUS princess in a HUGE castle with AMAZING shoes all while raising a beautifully MISERABLE family. All of the things dreams are made of…
They see us as the terrible tyrant that makes them
eat veggies and do chores while taking away their
technology time (since that’s a thing now).
But, what we see is the REAL wizard behind the curtain.
The woman frantically pulling levers and pushing buttons trying to
put on an impressively important show so she can be taken seriously.
All the while, what she really wants, is for her kids to use their brains
and their hearts and to realize that all she’s trying to do is to help them
grow into happy, healthy, non-asshole human beings.
They just want to paint us green and stick us on a broom.
Why is it always ME vs.THEM?
Because I haven’t given them reason for it to be any other way.
Because I apologize and feel guilty when THEY are unhappy.
Because I bargain and compromise what I want.
Because I don’t stand confident and respectful of myself.
So, why would they treat me any different?
Maybe, it’s not ME vs.THEM at all.
Maybe, it’s just ME vs. ME.
Maybe, if a momma wants to feel loved and appreciated,
all she has to do is love and appreciate herself.
Even if they don’t always appreciate me, I always appreciate
the person that I am helping them become.
