A tale of a Mommy Fail!

Who knows where I would be without the magical qualities of this highly addictive liquid. I HAVE to have one (or two) a day. It keeps the insanity that my crazies try to throw my way each day. I rely on the immediate effect it has on my soul, mind and mental health. Folks, I admit it, I am addicted to....


It is essential that I have one with lunch! I have come to realize that I fail my kids when I don't have one. Preferably a fountain one. The superhero abilities it has on me is amazing. I can drown out the fighting, whining, kids shows,and most crying.(OK, within reason, if they are hurt for sure I can hear it, and I help)However, I savor this stuff. I enjoy it till the last sweet drop. I know it is bad to have it so much, I know all the hype about the sweetener they use ..yada yada! I STILL LOVE IT!

Well, last night I must not have noticed that I SAVORED THE LAST ONE. Therefore, we were out! BIG Mommy Fail!! I cannot properly do my job with my magic elixir! I'm a bad mom when I don't have one, I am irritable, annoyed,lethargic and unmotivated.Devastation hit when the whining and crying due to my over tired and no longer napping children began to show. I almost lost my mind. I thought of every justification to go out and get a 24 pack. But, I decided to have will power. Could I do it without my magical elixir?

The answer is barely. I did manage to survive the mayhem and chaos of all four through dinner and bath time. But now, I am NEEDING it again. Will Power, strictly will power is the only reason I don't have one in my little paw.I will be going to get some tomorrow.I know I can make it. When did this dependence begin you may ask? Between June 14th and August 3rd. (the kids summer vacation)LOL How else could I handle this??

Even worse Mommy Fail is that my 2 year old Baby Q has a addiction too. He will say things like "I need my magic juice" when he is tired, frustrated, or bored. Yep, he loves his Orange Juice!! I have failed....I gave him a dependency! Oh man........

What do you need to get through the day with your kids? Pop, a laptop, or IPOD, maybe a few M&M's, a run, maybe a nap? Am I the only one who must enlist outside help to survive a day as a SAHM? Has any of that rubbed off out your wee ones?

  1. You have an amazing family! How blessed you are.

    My husband also LOVES diet coke. Preferably fountains ones too. And he is not happy when he runs out. LOL!
