A show of hands, please.

Do all mothers have desertion fantasies, or is it just me?

"I have learned my lesson and I swear, Lord, if you just take them back I'll never have sex again. I'm SORRY, okay?"

Oh, yeah. Many, many times, and with #1 son still living at home at nearly 29, I'm still having them. he he.

I just have the one son and I have them too. Thankfully, my mother is wonderful enough to want to take him for a overnights every so often. It really helps.

A few months ago, we had a very difficult time with one of our children, which made we wonder if there really was a black market for children and if they had a toll-free number.

But, mostly, I wish we could have one more.

Shan,

I definitely have days like that... Makes me worry about there potentially being a #2.

Yeah, alot. As a homeschooler, I spend all my time with them and it gets really ugly some days. But, I guess we all are going to get some space real soon 'cuz I got fired. They wanted to try public school this year.

I definitely feel that way sometimes!!!! By the end of the day on some days I wish I could change my name from "MOM" to something else and NOT TELL THEM what the new name is!@

Oh you know my fantasy daydream -- DUCT TAPE!! And as you know my child, I know you understand.

Uh Oh. Sounds like I should vacuum and get the fold-out couch ready...

Shan said...

No need to vacuum. I'm hardly coming from the Palais Royale.

But I guarantee you'll need more gin.

Kate said...

Dude, you've gone GREEN!!

Ames said...

I like the green and the bird wing. Pretty cool.

lizbon said...

Considering I currently have no gin, I'd say you're right.

Natalie said...

Oh, yeah. I'm right there with you. And can I have a gin too?

Just keep in mind, these are the clowns that will pick your nursing home one day. *@#!

I used to tell them that I was going to sell them on ebay. Then the oldest checked and told the other 2 that I couldn't really do that. In my lottery winning fantasy I buy an apartment, furnish it with white leather and yarn, and never tell the children where it is!
