I did everything in my power to break her and my father, yet they remained strong. My younger brother and sister had an easier time of it. I paved the way for an easier life. You are both welcome!
Now, I have my own children.
These words actually came out of my mouth earlier this month:
'If I hear one more word about homecoming before Monday morning, we are selling this house and moving back to the big city, where you will attend school with gang bangers and only have homecoming when you're in high school when it is logical to have homecoming!'
Except I screamed it. From the top of my lungs. And. I meant it.
In my defense, it is illogical to have homecoming for an entire WEEK! At our school, everyone 'does' homecoming.... from the smallest 4 year old to seniors in High School, and everyone in between. It can wear a mommy out. Smooth and completely out.
In that moment of being completely worn out, tired and zero patience left for the topic of homecoming, I said those words. You know what? It worked.
Be honest people, after this for an entire week, wouldn't you scream a little too?
