The Happiest Mother On The Block

I am not particularly proud of the mother I am from seven to eight o’clock in the morning.

Well, I am rather proud of what I manage to accomplish — getting the children up, getting them dressed, making their lunches, seeing that their teeth are brushed, packing their bags, walking the dog… you know the drill. I just can’t say that I do it all with much ease or grace. Any ease or grace, for that matter. Nine times out of ten, I am barking at all three of them by the time we make it into the car. Ten times out of ten, the car ride to school is pure hell.

“He’s repeating me!”

“She’s kicking me!”

“He’s looking out of my window!”

“She called me stupid!”

“Well, he is stupid!”

“Well, he is stupid!”

“Stop repeating meeeeee!!”

“Why couldn’t I be an only child?”



“He’s repeating me again!”

Every single morning, day after day, it’s the same. Our own little Groundhog Day.

“Just be quiet!!!” I holler, glaring in the rear view mirror. I can feel my blood pressure rising and the beginnings of a killer headache setting in.

“No more talking until we get there. Everyone just STOP!!”

I sigh audibly for effect. Just once I would like to get to drop off without a sore throat from yelling and without beads of sweat forming on my forehead. Is it really necessary for me to play referee before I’ve even had my coffee? Can’t they just sit in the car and mind their own business for the 15 minutes it takes to get to school? Do mornings really have to be like this? And,  just then, I see her walking by like clockwork and my question in answered. No, they don’t. For some people, mornings are a breeze.

Every single school day, The Happy Mother on the block walks her dog and two children along our route to the neighborhood school. Her kids are typical kids, not particularly spotless or notable, and I’m pretty sure I once saw the brother knock over his sister and laugh about it. They’re kids, just like mine. But, it’s the mom that strikes me day after day after day after day as I ride by hissing at my own offspring. And, why? Because she’s smiling, ear to ear, every damn time I see her.

I look at her laughing with the kids, holding the dog leash in one hand and a coffee cup in another and wonder how she manages not only to bear that uphill walk, but to actually seemingly enjoy it. I wonder if she notices me at the same intersection every day, with the exhausted look in my eyes and the sulking kids in the backseats. Does she wonder why I have to yell at them? Why we’re not happily playing word games or discussing world peace like they probably are? Does she think she’s better than me? Does she even see us? No, I’m sure. Most likely she doesn’t even notice me because she’s too busy being… happy.

Now, before you go thinking that I’m all depressed and should start dealing with my feelings, I’m not unhappy. I laugh and smile and enjoy my kids throughout the day, the morning just never happens to be one of those times. My daily run-ins with her make me wonder what she could possibly be doing that I’m not. Is she filling her coffee cup with vodka? Is she meditating for an hour at four in the morning to ground herself? Does she pop pills and peak in the morning and then suck for the rest of the day? Or, does she really just enjoy her children and parent them effortlessly all day, each and every day?

I’m going with the vodka. Or the meditation. Or the pills. The alternative is simply unthinkable.

Same route? Why aren't you walking with her? That way you could have grown up time, walk the dog AND ignore your kids. What am I missing?

I'd bet it's because she is walking! Getting kids into a car and to enjoy a car seems impossible.

She could be on Prozac. Seriously, it’s happiness in a bottle. I was soooo happy when I was taking it. Absolutely nothing bothers you!!! You float though life, made of Teflon. Then I stopped because I didn’t feel like “myself” anymore. Who IS this insanely cheerful person? The REAL me is not in a good mood ALL the time. Also it was making me fat – my appetite was insatiable. I wanted to eat constantly. (Of course, because I was on Prozac and so carefree, I was emotionally unable to feel unhappy about gaining so much weight.) Finally, in the doctor’s office, and the nurse saying “No…no, really?” as she is shifting the balance to find my weight on the scale, I realized I’d rather be irritable, crabby, and depressed…but thin!

It might just be the morning walk… it is a very pleasant thing that they might look forward to.

Rebecca 3 years ago

She could just be super happy because at last she got herself and kids out the door and she knows very soon they will be in school and she can get a break from it all. I always feel more stressed at home with the million and one things I still have to do waving a me. Or it could be plastic surgery gone very wrong (like the joker in bat man) and she cannot stop smiling

Ladies..I am exactly like that mom 70% of time. I was completely not morning person but after having baby I have turned into morning person (he is 2.5 now, & I m typing while I am few weeks away to hold newborn). I figured out that I m getting scary mom..& decided to take time for lot of self talk. Formula I almost quit working …only 20 hrs a week..when I m working I see myself looks more like scary mom yelling at my toddler & 2 dogs…all 3 stretch me in 3 directions… But when I m not working I m always smiling like that mom..because I m so relieved..because I get lot of my time once my son is gone to his daycare, even though I m not working full time, my son almost goes to daycare full time…so I think we can keep ourselves calm better if we have little time every day bases..I m definitely self employed to have flexible schedule & I m letting making money part go..& definitely have upset husband whose wife is not making enough as neighbors wife does….who cares…I m happy with what I have choosen..:) see I m happy & smiling typing this..

I *feel* like my childhood was one of those happy moms personified. My family is bilingual (Russian and English. I studied Latin for four years from age nine and we can all read, though not understand, Hebrew), intellectual (algebra by nine for all three of us and deep philosophical conversations during which I just want to go back to my books during dinner), cultured, foodie (as in, we actually shop at Whole Foods sometimes and the one time we went into Safeway, my bookish 11-year-old self spent the whole time lecturing my family about the dangers of processed food and pointing out that the shine of the apples was from a wax which was corn-based and the corn was grown in ways which literally killed workers) and somewhat better-than-thou. We do sports like ballet and gymnastics and judo. We’re effin’ HOMESCHOOLED. Aaand then, I turned 12, decided that I was an adult now, got into college (I’m a BA candidate at an Ivy League university), and start helping parent my 8- and 10-year-old brothers, especially if only one of my parents was present. And I suddenly realize what a huge pain it is. Making them behave enough that if I look away the building won’t turn into a smoking crater with purple mutant zebras running around, keeping them from fighting with each other, keeping myself from fighting with them, making sure they don’t let on too directly that we think we’re better than the people who’re telling us how lonely we must be homeschooling, finding their judo gis because even though it’s their clothes and I picked and put on my clothes all by myself since I was five, they can’t keep track of their uniforms, making them breakfast because my parents are really not morning people and don’t get up before 11 or 12 because between homeschooling and dad being a co-founder of a software startup wherein they all stay up ’till thee AM coding or something (maybe they’re just playing Eve or Infinity Blade 2 or Starcraft together) they don’t have to, making them actually leave playdates, ever (my argument usually goes something like ‘I have homework, and if I don’t do it, Harvard will give lower grades and that will lower my GPA so your not putting on your shoes and getting in the car RIGHT NOW could potentially ruin my WHOLE LIFE’), etc. I’m so sorry for all those fights I got into with my brothers and the temper tantrums I threw and all those times I couldn’t find my shoes now.

I am glad that I saw this article. I think I might understand the minor distinction between the Happy Mother and the rest of the parents out their who face their own lack of superhuman powers with humility.

I studied a psychology and my personal passion has revolved around happiness and efficacy. It may behoove readers to know that “Happy People” react to the world they live in differently. They tend to have reasonable, abstract goals versus rigid, ambitious goals. They tend to smile and laugh more and with less prompting. Psychology is learning that they really are different.

And psychologist have also found that you can train yourself to be happier. I am not saying that this will make you any better or worse as a parent. It’s not about your kids (finally!); it’s about you.
Try smiling when you are feeling apathetic and it will help switch a bland mood to a positive one. And give yourself credit for ALL the things you do well, even if the complete product doesn’t turn out well. You can focus on improving it the next time, but happy people tend to let themselves appreciate their own self.

I don’t know that anyone will read this, but I know this has drastically improved my work as a tutor for children and has made me more confident about my emotional future when I become a mother myself.

And yes I was smiling…it was nice to get out of my house and enjoy the sunshine and no one honking at me!

I HATE mornings getting ready for school. By the time the little shit gets out of my car I am so happy. But then the 2 yr. old is still in the car with me, ugh. Drop her at gram and paps, then I can let out a sigh of relief. Glad to know it’s not just me.

You know, she probably gets some exercise and time to herself before the kids get up. I know that when I do that, I’m happier than the mornings when I get up when the kids do and I have to rush to prep everything to get them out on time.

I often wonder what was missing in my gene pool when I can never be that put together morning mom. Now, I have to be that person in my classroom but at home, no way. I think we should be proud that we are the true person we are…..torn sweats, no make-up and bad hair and all…How do these people get up early on the weekends to get all made up to go to their kids soccer games, etc… Not in my gene pool!

No idea what’s in her coffee cup, but I find that “music soothes the savage beast” has saved ME many times! When my kids get to bickering in the back seat (at any time – the ride home when I pick them up after work is just as hellish as the ride to school in the morning) I queue up a song on my iPhone that I know they like and they’re singing along (and playing air drums) in no time. :)

I became a morning person in the mid-90s, when I had to be in Midtown at 6:45 am, and then for many years of showing up to teach high schoolers at 7 am.

I much prefer mornings over evenings, but before we leave the house, I’m a banshee. Then, once I know we’re going to make it on time and we’ll make the bus with time to spare and I’ll be able to follow my “plan” for the day – I relax and – holy crap! – smile! No drugs other than caffeine are involved.

Now evenings. Evenings are medicated with wine.

Im not a morning person but i have to wake up @ 6 to get my daughter out of the house at 6:45 to walk to the bus stop with my neighbors. she is almost 8 and is really independent that she can get herself up and dresses and i dont have to nag about it. i only have to wait until she is awake to remind her to brush her teeth before she gets dresses(she has this thing about doing it after and toothpaste on her uniform would not be pretty) anyway she knows that she gets ready as quiet as possible so not to wake up my 4 yr old who i have to sit next to in my bed so she thinks im still sleeping(yes my 4 yr old ends up in my bed sometime when my hubby gets up for work at 4 i dont know how this started) anyways our unofficial rule is not to talk unless unnecessary (she is a yapper first thing in the morning) so far it works for the both of us.

At least she’s not bragging about it. One hot day beside a crowded pool I watched another mom flit about wearing a pink tee shirt that said HAPPY MOM! across the boobs, with a little smiley face on it. Maybe it was just the heat, or the overpowering scent of 50 SPF sunscreen, but it made me feel like belting her.
I have moments of “happy mom,” but I never once had the urge to print it across my chest.

Amber 4 years ago

I am NOT a morning person, never have been, never will be…..I know exactly how you feel when it comes to the morning battles and screaming at the kids. However, it’s not a smiling mom that gets me. It’s me looking like a total hag, refusing to get out of my car when I drop my son off. There are mother’s with full on hair and make up done and their son’s or daughter’s are equally primped. I work nights so I literally roll out of bed 30 minutes before we have to leave the house and I always wonder if these ladies sleep…because they appear to have perfect homes and lives, all while I feel like a monster mommy with awful morning breath.

I doubt it’s effortless; she probably is very intentional in her “zen state.” :-)

I would love to routinely apply my efforts to being happy rather than… Fighting against the chaos of the routine? Life happens, day after day, and it’s exhausting to resist it.

This might be worth an experiment…

I have to comment again. To have “good morning sex” – no, scratch that – to have morning sex, I would have to wake up at 5 am before the kids and manage to brush my teeth without waking them up. My husband is most game early in the morning (why ARE men like that), when all I really want is another four hours of sleep. The chances of him rousing me and then convincing me to sacrifice sleep for nookie at that time of the day are at their lowest and if there are any moms having GOOD morning sex with children under six in their house, I want to know HOW! Ha ha.

    Deirdre 4 years ago

    I was going to say the same thing. There is no such thing as GOOD morning sex with kids in the house. Even if you do manage to get around to it, you then have breakfast making and lunch packing and getting everyone dressed to look forward to, feeling like you need a shower immediately or want to just go back to sleep.
    No, it’s pills.

I am THAT mom….but I don’t have the energy by the end of the day, my days top at about 5pm and I’m done, climbing into bed at 7! no drugs, no alcohol…just a happy morning person. But, it all works out great for us because hubby is an evening guy, so he takes over when he gets home…which is a good thing because if I had to carry on til bedtime I would be a witch! Just think, that in the afternoon (or evening) when you’re flying high and at your best you can go “HAH! I’d like to see you now Happy Mother!”

You probably see me on your way to school too..I am the one with no make-up, bedhead of Einstein proportions, wearing a combination of my pajamas and other clothing items I have picked up off the bedroom floor..possibly my husband’s who is not even close to my size..and ratty slippers or whatever shoes were by the door.I am the one praying not to be rear-ended or have any other problem that requires me to exit my vehicle! I am down to one 10 year old so we actually chat not fight. We used to have The Perfect Mom at our school when my olders were little..every hair in place, full makeup, fancy expensive outfits..she never did the curbside roll up and drop off of shame but personally walked her perfectly dressed children to the door everyday. I later met her and found out her life was as about far from perfect as possible so I now try not to assume!

I would go with pills, too. But my son’s old teacher might be one of those people. One time we showed up at school soaked after having been pelted by freezing rain for blocks (I live in the city). And I sighed and said, “Oh the SCHLEP!”. And she, a native of Michigan apparently hardened by many a winter said, “You know, I kind of like the schlep.”
And there you have it.

This also made me think of a post I wrote way back about making the bus and I unearthed it from a never-posted old blog and just reposted. It stressed me out to even read it!

First of all, it’s possible to smile through clenched teeth. And second,well, I am also one of those smiling, laughing moms (and I get confused looks from other women all_the_time). If only they knew how very tedious I find motherhood to be at times, and that to break the boredom I amuse myself by teasing the crap out of my kids. I’m say things like, “Did you know that when you were at school yesterday, I let the dog fart on your pillow?” Or, “You didn’t clean up like I asked. I can’t wait to get home and set all of your toys on fire!”

And I laugh and laugh.

I’ve been described as that mother who always seems happy. And the truth is, when I’m with my son, I usually am pretty damn happy. But I also share custody of him with his Dad so he’s only with me a few days a week. So when I have those precious moments with him, I enjoy them. That is not to say that he doesn’t get in trouble and really piss me off sometimes but, for the most part, we love being together. I miss him so much when he’s gone so I enjoy the time we have when we have it.

Your description of yourself is basically a description of me in the morning (and my kids), and I even know a mom like the one you’re talking about! They walk to school, baby bro in stroller and the three of them look like Norman arockwell characters. But instead of letting her bug me, I talk to her when I see her at my son’s school. I think I have a girl crush. She’s just really, really nice, without seeming judgy or snooty or any of the things those REALLY infuriating moms can be. And she inspires me to take a breath and remember that even if I feel like a raging bitch because I do, in fact, have a sore throat from screaming at my kids a few minutes ago, they also know I love them, and they also know I need a f#*!ing coffee. They also know that MOST of the time, I will drop what I am doing to laugh with them (or at them) or enjoy being with them, in the moment. Even if I have to get back to the dishes or cleaning their pee off the bathroom walls shortly after.

My husband is not only a morning person, but he’s always, always, ALWAYS happy and playful, and singing, and OHMYGOD stop it already!!! I always tease him that it’s way TOO annoying for a bad mood person like me. 😛 I hate mornings and I feel miserable every single day when I have to get the kids ready for school. And there’s yelling sometimes as well. However, the rest of my day is usually a breeze (all alone, YEY!), and night time isn’t too stressful. My kids don’t even complain about going to bed! So yeah, I prefer it this way. The mornings are too fast anyways, then everyone’s gone, while afternoons/nights are much longer, so… :)

I KNOW I would be, not only smiling but laughing like a deranged clown if I was sending ALL my kids to school for 8 blissful hours!! LOL!

If I don’t do the yelling, nagging and pressuring in the a.m.(e.g. when I finally let go and tell myself I don’t care if my girls go to school starving, in their pajamas with morning breath & rat-nest hair), my annoyingly laid-back husband takes on the role.
