Stress and my kids

     Today I'd like to talk about stress. I had one heck of a stressful day. I'm a mom who chooses to stay home with my four year old and two year old. I don't like to complain much about the work or the stress being a stay-at-home mom is but, today, I'm going to make an exception. MY KIDS DROVE ME NUTS TODAY. There I said it. I'm not ashamed of that at all. My wonderful four year old daughter is FULL of energy and likes to be running around constantly. My two year old son is a mama's boy and loves to be played with...all the time. Man, do I love my kids but sometimes I want to lock myself in the bathroom and just stay there. haha. When things are getting to be too much, (i.e. sibling fights, spilled messes, whining, and so on) there are two things I like to do to calm myself down and regroup. First thing I do, is grab my mp3 player and turn the volume right on up. ::sigh:: Music certainly can change my mood and it's a damn good thing. The other thing I do to calm down is go on over to ScaryMommy's blog and read her entries. ScaryMommy is such a fabulous writer and mother. She writes about every day motherhood and she's real about it. It always lifts my spirits to know I'm not the only mother out there who goes crazy every now and then. So you should go to her site and read. And enjoy. And maybe even laugh your ass off. She also has this ingenious thing called Confessions. You can find it on her blog. Confessions is a totally anonymous gig where you can type up a confession and have people 'like', 'hug', or 'omg, me too' your confessions. I have already confessed a bunch and have gotten many hugs from total strangers and it feels awesome. So, go ahead and confess anything you want. You may even get a hug out of it.
     Being a mom is one tough gig but it has it's rewards. You mothers out there know what I'm talking about. Those moments where your kiddos randomly come up and tell you how much they love you. Moments when you are so proud of them, you think your heart might explode. They are little treasures and I feel so blessed to have my monkeys....even if they drive me bananas.
