My cup... have RUNNETH over!!

Dear Neighbor Lady.
I wanted to apologize to you for my EXTERME meltdown your were lucky enough to hear today.
I do USUALLY have all my poop in a group.
But, apparently today was not my FINEST moment.
Yes, I do have food in my house--
No, Tayson was NOT starved to death.
Yes, I was sobbing UNCONTROLABLLY when I answered the door.
No, I didnt beat my children.
Yes, they are all 3 sick with strep throat, fevers, and the stomach flu.
No, I did not want you to think that your concern for us was unjust.
Yes, I will probually NOT look you in the eyes for a few days.
Thank you for caring enough to knock,
Love the crazy lady in Apt #F

For the most part I can keep everything together. And for the most part it takes alot to BREAK me.
But as for right now I am at the breaking point.
I want to breakdown and cry at any given moment.
I have had it.. I am tired, I am frausterated, I am on MEDICAL information overload, I miss adult converation that doesnt always end in MORE parenting advice. ( not that I dont appreciate it- but come on EVERYDAY). I am stressed out.
There I have finally admitted it.. And nobody will know except you my bloggers and I.

Now that I have put all my feeling out there I can already tell I am feeling better.. But Today was NOT a good day to be at my HOUSE..Just ask the kiddos they were ALL home sick!!!

Awwww... I'm so sorry this happened! At least your neighbor cares, right? The advice thing does get really old. We have a wonderful relative that gives us advice everyday. And it's over anything & everything. I hope things get better soon, & everyone starts feeling better!<3 -Cassie

Oh I have been there. All mommies reach a breaking point sometimes. I have on more occasions than I care to mention. lol. Usually other mommies will understand. It's nice that your neighbor cares but I understand how frustrating it can be. Yes, the advice does get overwhelming and annoying. My ex mother in law used to change the words "giving you some advice" to "can I make a suggestion?" Both are still to this day equally annoying. I know she means well but I swear she doesn't think I know what I'm doing. So no worries mama, your human like the rest of us. :-)

Oh man! I can't believe I didn't see this post sooner and get to encourage you. We all have those really, really bad days where the house is a mess, the kids are sick, and mommy is in tears. None of us our perfect and I'm FAR from it. Every day won't be fantastic but on those really bad days, just curl up in a blanket and watch movies or a read a book. Don't worry about every day being successful and perfect. Love you. ;)
