Have truer words ever been blogged?

A fellow parent recently referred me to this article; To parents of small children: Let me be the one who says it out loud

You are not a terrible parent if you yell at your kids sometimes. You have little dictators living in your house. If someone else talked to you like that, they’d be put in prison.

I read that and shouted, “Hell ya!”

You are not a terrible parent if you’d rather be at work.

You are not a terrible parent if you just can’t wait for them to go to bed.

You are not a terrible parent if the sound of their voices sometimes makes you want to drink and never stop.

“You bet your ass!” I exclaimed and raised my glass of wine.

We have enthusiastic, creative and funny children and my husband and I are highly amused by them. There are times, however, when we want to push those boys outside and lock all the doors. There may even have been a recent time when we actually did that.

I dove deeper into the site needing to learn more from this sagacious teller of truths. It was only then that I realized the blog was The Actual Pastor and had a definite religious bend.

I’m ashamed to admit that caused a slight pause, but it didn’t deter me – his message was just too wise. I quickly turned my exuberant cry into an “Amen!” and just tried not to read the comments. (Kidding! Most of his readers sound very sane.)
