The Tired Zombie Mom Chronicles: “Mt. Cocoa Puffs in Philly”
Date: 9 March 2017
Time: 6:45 A.M.
Location: Philadelphia, PA
So my three year old lumbered himself downstairs before I did this morning. Not typically a big deal. However, this morning he found the secret “Cocoa Puffs” stash in the cupboard and proceeded to dump said Puffs in a huge chocolaty pile in the middle of the kitchen floor.
Already exhausted from a hard day yesterday, I felt the blood literally draining from my face. The little bugger was hysterically laughing and grinding the Cocoa Puffs into my kitchen floor like a crazed little midget. I wanted to cry.
Trust me, I now know how a mother can both love and hate their child at the same time. Yes, a good mother can have the motivation and ability to protect and defend their flesh and blood like a well trained Navy Seal and at the same time…want to put a Tony Soprano-style hit out on them and deny any knowledge.
The dichotomy is both mesmerizing and sobering.
Anyway, the presiding question is: Am I a bad mother for wanting to drive him to the closest Walmart and abandon him in a dirty cart in the parking lot, or am I a bad mother for sweeping every Coca Puff up and stuffing ’em back in each box? The older kids won’t be the wiser and Puffs will disguise a multitude of dirt and incidental foreign objects. Plus, times are hard right?
As you’ve already figured out…this is how my wonderful day started. So…yeah…the next person I hear saying stay-at-home Moms don’t really work hard or don’t contribute to society…gets throat punched and choked out MMA style.
Have a great day guys!
