Finally some one who "gets" my version of motherhood!

"I'm going to write a book. I'll call it "How to Raise Children Without Slashing Your Wrists" It won't be over dramatic at all.
Chapter Synopsis
1. Look, maybe you aren't cut out for procreation
2. Too late, Now What?
3. The TV as Babysitter and Sanity Saver
4. Send them to Grandmas, but don't be surprised if they come back entitled and high on sugar
5. Discipline techniques that don't work, but make you feel Angrier, which makes you feel powerful, which makes everyone cry in the end
6. Accepting your role as Wicked Witch of the West
7. Who needs Love when you've got Guilt?
8. Removing the door handles to your children's rooms and other effective time-out strategies
9. Sleep deprivation, Repetition, and other Torture techniques (how to survive when your children use them on you)
10. Cleanliness is next to Craziness

What chapters would you include?"

This is another list written by the funny Steph on her blog that I thought was soo worth sharing.
Holy cow this girl is hilarious! Go check out her blog Everyone's Excited and Confused
and tell her I said thank you for being able to read my mind about being a mom and then creative enough to write about it!
P.s. I will be the first in line to by her book!

Oh, thank you, thank you thank you! Finally, I meet someone who is honest! I have three kids, whom I love dearly, I homeschool the youngest who is ADD, and all the "chapters" in your book could have been written by me!
Problem is, I feel like I am the only one I know who would be honest about it...the other people around me would never admit to anything like it..
So thanks, for making me feel normal, and for following my blog.
PS: would it be ok if I share this "book" on my FB page? I will give you credit..
I just want to mess with the "good" mothers. lol
