I guess I should have mentioned...

I love my kids SO MUCH. I do! I've had a couple of comments already (one posted, one rejected and the rejection knows why), both of which sound like I've been perceived as a true mommy on the edge. Edge of what, I dunno. But in retrospect, I did sound a bit manic, didn't I?!

Sorry 'bout that. I'm not crazy, I'm not near a breakdown or anything. Rest assured that aside from the occasional cry and whine I'm in perfect mental health! I get a little down when I don't get any "me" time for weeks at a time and when I voice my frustration, he poo-poos it like my feelings don't matter.

I cherish my time with my kids. We've made a lot of sacrifices so I can stay home with them and I shouldn't complain about the job I have. So many moms and dads would LOVE to have my job!!! My kids are, and always will be, my first priority. Please don't call that into question.

All I'm saying is that everyone needs a break sometimes. Grass is always greener, right?

I just felt the need to comment to let you know that I seen nothing wrong with your previous blog. I think all parents (especially when you have multiple children) get a little batty from time to time. Just because we decide to have children does not mean we should give up our *me* time. I think we need it even more once we do have children; that is at least what keeps me sane! It has nothing to do with lack of love, its about getting a little frayed on the edges after day to day of the same thing and no real contact with the outside world. I hope you get some *me* time soon and your spirits get recharged.

Of course you need a break, we all do from time to time. If you ever need a shopping buddy you know i'm like 20 minutes from the Outlets!

When I told Kevin this last night he said, "Thats motherhood."

Men don't get it.
