A few weeks ago, someone rather close to me vented on Facebook (because that's what we do in 2015) about someone making the loose comment, "You find out whom your real friends are when you have kids."
My non-parent friend's vent in a nutshell was, "Wait a minute, I didn't make the life-changing decision to have kids … YOU did. Pardon me if I don't want to be around your kids every single time we hang out. At some point throughout our friendship, I would like some time alone with you. I love your children and don't mind spoiling them with my affection, but there are times where I would like my friend's attention."
I want to crank up the radio and sing my little heart out.
I want to order a fountain Coke and drink it all by myself.
I want to go to target and walk around for an hour without one child pulling everything off the racks, and one child whose legs all of a sudden don't bend while you're trying to sit them down for the 85th time.
When I do make the time for you, I don't want to go out. I know you think I "need it," but I don't.
Going out for dinner and few drinks is one thing, but I don't want to go out all night. I'm already sleep deprived and have negative thoughts about beating my children, the last thing I need is a hangover.
My name is Paige, and I am a stay at home wife, and a mom to two crazy kids under three. I believe that adding humor to the life of parenting is a must, or you will simply lose your mind! I am fairly new to the blogging world and truly have no clue what I’m doing, but when I’m on the computer, I tell my kids that I’m “working on something very important.” It doesn’t go over well.
