Mothers love to share and swap stories about the accomplishments of their children.
We’re not able to confirm that your child has had their basic needs met all week, let alone every day. Sorry.
Real parents on what it takes to get the peace and quiet they crave.
Recently my Facebook feed has been blowing up with an article titled, “6 Reasons My Husband and I Probably Won’t Make It To Your Event, and Why We Don’t Want You To Take It Personal.”
I hate crying in front of other people. I appreciate the weight lifted when I have a good cry, but it isn’t an activity I seek out.
Today I packed up, changed all my plans, and got on the train. I watched people kiss in Grand Central. I’m watching the leaves. I’m watching the water.
When I first began nannying I figured it’d be a piece of cake but little did I know that I would become well versed in Doc McStuffins and be cleaning up bodily fluids that only my nursing friends had experienced.
Those of us who make a conscious choice to be childfree endure many insensitive comments, such as (but definitely not limited to), “You’ll change your mind,” or “But that’s your life purpose!” However, stating that your life had no meaning before children has to be the most insulting.
“Kids are idiots.”
Houston, we have a problem.
