Cut them, cut off your nose.

I was busy filling sippies with milk, making those Peanut Butter & Co Dark Chocolate Dream rollups the kids like (and coffee, always coffee), and getting our day started.  My ears perked up when Rachel Martin started talking about the current administration's proposed budget on Morning Edition.  As Orange Julius’s plan to eliminate the NEA, NEH and Corporation for Public Broadcasting unfolded, my stomach turned.  I wanted to punch him.  And scream.  And punch a few other people.

So, here’s what I’ve had to do to keep my sanity intact.  If you’re feeling like I am, maybe this will help you too.

How to be a better mom: be a shitty one

Today, Sweetpea has a very exciting field trip with her preschool class to a nature center.

When I was dropping her off, one of the other moms asked if I was going on the trip.  I told her that actually, parents had been asked to sit this one out because of some research thingy that was happening (Sweetpea’s school is part of a child & family research center).  

She said “Whew!  I was having *so much* mom guilt about not going.  I can cross that one off now.”
