Baby Carlos…..not ours…..

I am a 40 41 42 43 44 40 something…. year old working mother with 3 boys aged 39 40 41 42 43 40 something (Mr Cruisey), 10 11 12 13 14 Teen 1 (Moomoo) and 8 9 10  12Teen 2 (Monkeyboy), 1 cat, (Dame Esmerelda) and 1 dog, (The Moose) (Benson)…..

I don’t bake, I don’t kinda sew , I am in the P & C to make up numbers, I work in Hospitality as a Front of House Manager and  I am surrounded by testosterone, farts, skateboards, band aids, broken bones, scooters, Nerf guns, wrestles, silly giggles, yelling, music, family, friends, love, love and love.

The reason I want to do a blog is:

1) cheaper than psychologist fees and

2) everyday I have these moments (sometimes very often) and I think ‘It’s Not Just Me Right?’ It’s not just me that:

  • Is flustered most mornings before 9am as I have had the dreaded ‘Get ready for School’ horrors. NOPE – I now start before the boys and because they are in High School, they do it themselves!  YAY!!!!
  • I am now flustered the night before school asking the boys about homework and notes and lunch and all that as we leave it until the last last last possible moment…..
  • Deals with what appears to be capable human beings only to find out fairly quickly that this is not the case
  • Sees or reads an article and thinks ‘Really?’ and knowing that if the kids get a hold of it, there’s going to be a whole new world of explaining to be had (aka lies lies lies)
  • Is surrounded by noisy chaos
  • Worries about their weight, health, mentality – oh when will it stop
  • Wants to be the favourite parent that always says ‘Yes’
  • Does not want to turn into their Mother (I love you Dawn, I am not and shall not, ever be you)
  • Needs more sleep, exercise, food, sex, love, money, security……. And the list goes on…..
  • Loses their shit – frequently!
  • Becomes a hormonal raging beast (that has now stepped up a notch too!!!)
  • Loves spending time with their family and friends
  • Is honest, scared, afraid, happy, sad………And the list goes on…….
  • Thinks sarcasm is a useful tool not to be wasted
  • Sometimes wants to grab life ears and kick it in the nuts and other times explode with joy
  • Is going crazy dealing with a pre teen ……..2 pre teens….TEENS!!!
  • Is a Mother, Lover, Sister, Daughter, Aunty
So with all of these questions in mind, it’s either therapy or a blog so I have chosen the latter.

Please enjoy, comment, laugh, cry – do whatever bloggy thing you want to do because the more I hear from you, the more I realise, It’s Not Just Me Right?
