Ok, I am just gonna say it...

It irritates the h*** out of me when people complain about their kids or their mundane daily routines involving their kids. I want to throw perspective in their faces. Think about it. What if, in an instant, it was all taken away from you? The mundane routines, the crying, the "mommy this and the mommy that", the loud obnoxious toys, the lack of sleep, ect. What if one morning, you realized that you had slept until 7:45, only to realize that the reason you had slept so late was because your child had died in the early morning hours. I don't expect anyone to have the same perspective as me, unless of course, you have also suffered the unfortunate loss of a loved one.

  1. I don't blame you for being frustrated. We are all insensitive at times and a little perspective does us well.

    I meant to tell you earlier that your blog update is awesome looking....I really like it....great new look and the picture of you and Karissa is precious.

  2. I'm not saying this is even close to being the same thing because I know I don't understand the weight of your pain... but I think I do get the concept, because every time I hear a woman complain about how her husband is gone at work too much or doesn't help with the kids the way she thinks he should (while oh by the way that job is what allows her to stay home with her kids and still live a comfortable life).... it kinda makes me want to ask if she wants a piece of my pie!
    You remind me to be grateful for the opportunity I have with my kids even when I am tired, stressed out, overwhelmed, exhausted, broke, terrified and just plain insecure about the kind of mom I am. I love you girl.
