Night and day it’s
make the fire,
fix the breakfast,
wash the dishes,
do the moppin’”
Being both a mom and step-mom I feel like the evil step mother in Cinderella except not only am I the evil-step mother I am also Cinderella. I am sure most every parent feels that way, do all this work and little to no thanks but according to the philosophy of the locker room teens last night, as parents we signed up to be their slaves willingly. For as much shit as I have been through in the relationships in my life I really wanted to slap the taste from those kids’ mouths. I am sure each parent/family/individual goes through enough shit in life to not have to deal with snarky comments like that. Teens , I am SO GLAD I am not one of them anymore. Strangely I’ve been dealing with teens from 25 years old and I’ll be dealing with them until I am 50 years old, at which time my own grandkids will be spanning from 25 down to little sausages. LOL
Don’t get me wrong, I do adore all our kids, no matter what their parentage, to itty bitty bits and pieces but they all drive me/us crazy from time to time.
My life’s saving graces are finding a paperbag prince & living in our tiny palace on the hill, establishing a phenomenal career and knowing that I beat all the odds, statistics and forces against me. I know my happily ever after dream will be met on our wedding day (if I ever get around to finishing planning it). Knowing I had a happily ever after before I even met my prince, I didn’t need him for my happily ever after he is just a great perk in a world of awesome, as are his kids (even with my evil-step-mother/Cinderella syndrome) and everything we have made together so far.
What could make it better? Well as probably a lot of people winning the lottery, having a pet narwhal or sheep or dinosaur, more vacation time, one less disease in the family, more William Shatner in the world, lawn pooping marathons and…..
….Uh….. World Peace?
