It’s Tuesday. Which means it’s “It’s Okay Tuesday” over at another brilliant Amber’s blog. And you know what? there are a lot of things I’m trying to be okay about this week.
So I’m going to play along.
This week, it’s okay:
To tell your husband to give the kid a bath so you can have a precious 30 minutes to yourself.
To wish you were the kind of parent who’s comfortable giving a kid Benadryl just so you can get a little shut eye.
To wonder if you’ll ever stop whining about lack of sleep.
To be really annoyed at the political climate.
And to be even more annoyed at the political person you’re being forced into becoming.
To hope Rush Limbaugh is reincarnated as a woman.
To wonder who all those crazy people on YouTube are. And to wish you could send them your laundry to fill up their obviously too empty hours.
To feel vaguely guilty about your lack of potty training progress. But kind of relieved that you don’t have to deal with hourly potty breaks just yet.
To really like green smoothies. But like chocolate cake even more.
To like the idea of exercising more than the actual act of exercising.
To dream of creating the Perfect Birthday Party for your daughter. But be pretty sure you’ll settle for generic invites and a box mix cake instead.
To really wish you could go sit in a tanning bed. Even though you know you’d just burn in 30 seconds flat.
To snort derisively at the silly sorority girls hanging out in short shorts in 60 degree weather while stifling a pang of jealousy at their still perfect bodies.
To wish you had gone on a real Spring Break. Until you remember how much you hate crowded bars. Especially bars filled with drunk college kids.
To hope your daughter never, ever goes on Spring Break. Ever.
To kind of wish you could home school your daughter until graduate school. But then remember you can’t do math.
To be ready to end a blog post before it’s really done. Just so you can close your eyes for five minutes…
You’re still here? I told you I was done.
Okay, then you tell me. What are you okay about this week?
