I love my kids! I just want to say that up front. But I have also learned that being a mom is hard work. And it can suck the life out of you. Sometimes they make choices that just make you want to beat your head on the wall and scream. And your children can hurt you, more than anyone else in the world.
I should write a book. Really I should. But I don't like books without happy endings and so far I can't envision a happy ending. I take consolation in the fact that I worship a God who can. Until then I'm buying stock in Band Aids.
