You May Call Me June Cleaver

Thankew to blog bud ThirDEE for linking this one:

British mum is bored stiff by her children.

Which begs the question: why in the hell did you have kids in the first place? Did she think her kids would be any different?

Oh sure, I'll be the first one to stand up and say that yes, sometimes I do get a little bit fed up with the kids sometimes - the arguments, the bathing, the birthday parties and whatnot - but for crying out loud! This is what I want to do!

Call me an old-fashioned geek, but maybe I want to have that 1950's life where the dad works and comes home to dinner and a spotless house. I can't say I actually pull that off, but at least I try.

I love my kids, believe it or not, and some days I have to repeat "I love my kids/they are a blessing" over and over (like today at the mall), but I can't imagine life without them.

This "mother" texted her friends throughout Pirates of the Caribbean. Good grief woman! Johnny Depp was up there! Have you no shame???

Look, maybe I'm not June Cleaver (though I aspire to be Paula Deen), any maybe every day isn't a beautiful day in my neighborhood, but dammit, I try, and I know that I'm doing the best I can for my kids.

Just keep doin' what your doin, GroovyVic.

I have no doubt that in about seven to ten years we'll see that woman again, this time expressing her shock and horror at some violent crime her offspring have commited.

The time a mother spents with her children is a big part of what gives them their sense of self-worth. I have no doubt that Paula Deen is within reach and June Cleaver is do-able. Hang in there.

BTW, do you know the real reason Barbara Billingsley always wore pearls?

And for cryin' out loud, give Curves a rest until you've seen the Doc.

God Bless

As a SAHD, I'm not as sold on the traditional roles, but I think we're in agreement on just how precious our children are. I keep thinking about the Andrea Yates case, and I can't help but think that if those had been my kids, and she had been my wife, and she had called the police and then me, she'd better have hoped the police got there first, because I would have killed her.

I made a promise to my boy when he was just days old that I would kill anyone who tries to hurt him, and I mean it.

God, if you don't adore kids, why freaking have them?

Children are a treasure. No! They're not always enjoyable. But, who is? Good grief. Most of the time when I'm not enjoying my children, it's when I'm a grump.

That "mum" is an idiot. I'd say that when she's in her final days, she'll regret every minute that she got rid of her kids so she could have her time. But, she's so obnoxious and selfish that she'll never care.

My oldest baby is 8 years old. I've only got her for 10 more years. Today, she's supposed to go to her friends house-a first. And, I'm all worried about the "what-ifs"!

That "mum" and many like her are a big part of the problem today. No wonder kids grow up with problems.

That woman is unbelievable. I mean, who could sit through a Johnny Depp movie and just text message all the time?!

*raising hand sheepishly*

Johnny just doesn't do it for me. Kate Beckinsale, on the other hand....
