I, in and emotional moment today, told the kids that tomorrow we will be cleaning all day
and they can’t have friends over,
or play on the computer..
or do anything else that might be fun.
And I am sure we will eat Non-sugar cereal for breakfast,
and have the off brand of Mac-N-Cheese for lunch.
And we will probably only get to watch PBS,
and listen to easy listening radio.
And I will not use fabric softener in the laundry so their towels will be scratchy
and I’ll take a long hot shower before bed so that theirs will be luke warm.
Then I’ll lick my lips before I kiss them goodnight…ew!
all because they said Mom
in that tone of voice
too many times today.
Why did I punish myself.
