10 Things I’m Thankful For

1. Cartoon-y botoxed and lip-enhanced mamas with the big fake boobs that dress like their teenage daughters (thank you for the belly laugh – it works every time);

2. Play dates at other kids’ houses (yes, I’ll drop her off in 5 minutes!);

3. That first five seconds after climbing into bed every night when you’re sure you will no longer be needed for a snuggle, a glass of water or a story;

4. Lunesta;

5. Sarcasm and the company of people who get yours;

6. Hearing ‘Mommeeeeeee’ shrieked across a busy store and realizing it’s not your kid;

7. Getting out of the mall without having to visit the pet store;

8. Getting out of the pet store without having to take out a puppy;

9. That crumpled up, 6 month old tampon you found just in the nick of time in that zippered part of your purse;

10. Silence.


About oneburnedoutmama

Ever so slightly burned out mama. Love kids. Not so much on a few of the parents. Hate folding laundry. Love long stretches of silence. Prefer rain over sun and football over HGTV.
