Like many moms, I constantly compare my parenting skills to others.
I try to emulate their patience, and then I snap at Sarah when she won't quit pulling on my shirt over...and over....and over.
I work so hard to be more attentive to my kids, and then I shush them when I'm watching Modern Family.
I try to be more health conscious to keep their bodies growing strong instead of wide, and then I stop at the nearest drive-thru and order burgers and fries.
One thing all moms do, though, is have days when you think you're going to absolutely lose it!
The other day while I was cooking dinner and getting tomato sauce all over my favorite white shirt, Savannah kept coming in asking for various snacks, Sarah was hanging on to the back of my shirt like she loves to do, Pace was crying at my feet wanting to be held, and telemarketers wouldn't stop ringing my phone.
I had a sudden urge for a glass of wine...a piece of chocolate...something that would give me a quick respite.
Then I remembered an article I read in a parenting magazine about the rise in the number of women who have become addicted to prescription pills.
Is it bad that I wanted to search for that article so I could get some tips on which pills work best???
