When you want to murder your children: Monday Quotes #30

“There will no doubt be a moment where you will want to murder your child.” – Vicki at Mommy Mishaps

Vicki has just started blogging at Mommy Mishaps and I look forward to reading about the crazy antics that go on in a household with four girls!

Yes we love our children, they do wonderful things like give spontaneous hugs and tell us we’re beautiful while we put our make-up on at the breakfast table. But they can also be horrible, evil, and insanity-inducing creatures that whine, run away when we say “come here”, and scream “don’t touch me!” in quiet public places like libraries.

Vicki’s 2-step murder prevention program includes:

  1. Medicating. I’ve never tried her vatorade mix (vodka and orange Gatorade) but it does sound tasty.
  2. Wait for the “cute” to come back. Although, in my experience this can take a while and you’ll have to do some serious medicating to get through the long wait.

Go check out her blog sometime! I’m always thrilled to find other un-Martha, Pinterestally-challenged mothers with well-developed senses of humors to commiserate with. I suspect she’s one of us.

Disclaimer: I don’t really want to murder my children. That would be very, very bad. And I’m pretty sure prison isn’t the vacation it’s made out to be. Right?


About dirtyrottenparenting

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.

    It’s such an honor to be welcomed into the blog family by you. You have no idea how refreshing it is to find other like-minded parents out there. I can already tell this will be a great way to swap warped stories. :). Thank you for sharing mine.

  2. “One of us”…lol, like an anti-June Cleaver cult? Is there a similar one for dad’s I wonder??
