We all know parenting is a tough job, but especially when something like this happens.
My 10 y.o. son just told me I’m waisting his time.

By wasting his time he means doing anything other than Mind Craft like playing outside, reading, playing his guitar, doing his homework.
But he made up for everything last week when he said this.
When I woke my son this morning he said in a sleepy voice, “Mom, I love you.” #BestDayEver

It was the sweetest thing, y’all (I’m not form the south, but I don’t think it’s fair that only people from the south get to say y’all). And we all know those moments are few and far between. I think he just said it to get an X-Box, but I don’t care. I’ll take it.
As if being a person parent isn’t hard enough, you got people trying to be “parents” of more things.
I cannot stand those ads where people refer to themselves as “pet parents.” Now excuse me while I take my dog to the fucking dermatologist.

I’m with Ms. Not Quite on this. That’s why…
I know secretly my husband wants to be called a pet parent. But the day that happens is the day I give up my will to live.

You should see him with the kitties. He’s the one who said we weren’t getting cats (here’s part 1 of the Great Kitty Adventure) then tried to deny me two little, helpless kitties when I looked at him with big, sad, pleading eyes (Part II in the Great Kitty Adventure). Now he’s all about the kitties. In fact, he has a night time petting routine with the kitties that rivals his night time routine with our kids. The Kid even accused him of loving the kitties more (she may be on to something).
Neither does this poor pup.
And, because of the way Kevin behaves with the kitties, I find myself in need of something to keep my will to live going, something inspirational, something like the encouragement and support I receive from my paper towels.
I like how my paper towels give me little inspirational notes like “believe.” No 1 else cares about me enough 2 do that. *Hugs paper towels*

Or, maybe reminders like this…
Try not to screw things up today. *Inspirational tweet

Annee takes a different approach with the inspirational quotes, but still she’s trying to be motivational, and that’s what counts.
This next one may not be printed on my paper towels, but it should be because truer words have never been spoken.
If there’s one thing this life has taught me, I forgot it.

I would totally buy those paper towels.
I bet Rob R would too. Listen to what happened to him.
The fact that they haven’t carved an ice sculpture in my image yet is precisely why I’m quitting this job.

I can’t think of a better reason.
But, at least, this didn’t happen to him.
My son is sick with something nasty, so I’m trying to trace back to when he may have had contact with Miley Cyrus.

I blame her father, though, (and her mother). Every time I read something about her, hear her speak or see her father in an interview (for the record he was not at all uncomfortable with her performance on the VMA’s because “she’s an artist.” But the question is, what kind of artist?), it gets worse and worse, and I’m getting Cyrus fatigue. (Luckily, there is this awesome video spoofing her Wrecking Ball video. It helps.)
I think Cyrus fatigue is the sign. The sign the end is near. If this is where we are as human beings, I think we’ve run our natural course. It’s clear we’ve come to the end of our potential. We have nothing more to contribute. And, so, I leave you with this.
Do you guys know there is a radio station online called World Crisis Radio? I guess u listen to that b/4 slitting your wrists.
