Oh..they were doozies of prompts today...
Sooo exciting! I'm going to write on 4 out of the 5... so get ready...
1. Mother's Guilt... tell us what happened...
Well.. to be perfectly honest... I don't have any Mother's Guilt. I have been present and involved with each and every tiny second of my kids days and nights for the last 15 years, and frankly... I'm exhausted. A "Job" actually looks good to me sometimes. I don't suffer from guilt. Am I supposed to? I'm a really "no nonsense" Mama, and I am always telling my kids that this is my first go around as a Mama, and I'm gonna make mistakes... lots of them. I don't worry about whether they have all the newest technology, toys, things... what have you.
They are getting an excellent education from prestigious private schools, we live in a modest home, they have traveled the world with us, they are constantly being disciplined, talked to, mentored, scolded, hugged, loved on, and are in any and every sport they wish to play... but I say "No" an awful lot... and I will never apologize for it. I don't like or enjoy being around spoiled, entitled kids, so I am trying not to create them. There are no "Jones'" I will ever feel I need to keep up with. So yeah... guilt... none found here... sorry.
Write 5 incredibly short books...
(Dan says..."The point is that the book is of zero size since the title is a contradiction with reality")
Okay... here's goes my titles...
"My Life as a Man"
"The Smartest People in Politics"
"The Joy of Cancer"
"Nazi's... sweet and cuddly people that they are"
Okay... so I only came up with 4. Sue me.
I'll be happy when______.
My answer to that is simple... I'll be happy NOW!
I just choose it... can't wait for it to happen... just be happy now.
