Approachable rage-cleaning mothers are not common. Most of them are aggressive and unpredictable.
Being the mean mom isn’t something I enjoy, but it’s damn well necessary.
Someday, my kids will move on, and I will surely miss the mess. In the meantime, I’ll continue to strive for a messier-than-I-prefer balance between both worlds.
I’m here to tell you that you absolutely, 100%, without a doubt are doing right by your family.
Moms, the next time you are losing your shit in the middle of a chaotic afternoon, just remember, it could be worse.
I know it goes so fast. I know it could always be worse. But if I want to complain, can you just let me?
