Exhausted Mom Seeks Validation

I have not cooked a meal in over a week.

I took the boys to the library only after listening to hours of begging, and have subsequently refused to read the twins any books out loud. I told them just to look at the pictures.

I have let the boys wander about the neighborhood and everywhere else without making sure they have brushed their teeth or hair.

I have relaxed my usual media standards and have used the computer and TV as babysitters over the past few days.

I have become short-tempered and snappish.

Last night I prayed, “Dear Lord, please help me keep these children alive just one more day.”

Here is the one visible thing I have accomplished.

Figure 2: Target shirt after application of Shout and wash in hot water with Tide and Oxy-Clean:


Please validate my laundering skill. It’s the only thing I’m proud of right now.

I'm Anne Glamore, wife, mother, lawyer and blogger. I have three boys, and I'm desperately trying to train them to become Southern gentlemen, but that may be an unrealistic goal. At this point I'd be ecstatic if they'd quit farting at the dinner table. If you're new here, check out the Readers' Favorite Posts below or browse through the Categories. I write about my attempts to teach the boys about peckers and sex (which we call "making googly eyes"), my struggles with hepatitis C and spine surgery, the boys' adventures with fire and pets, my mom's death from ovarian cancer, my love of cooking (with plenty of recipes) and anything else that crosses my mind.
