Motherhood Obsession

I've discovered that, for work, Twitter is a billion times better for getting my info/gossip fix than anything else and that I act like a total techie jerk when my boss sends me a message like, "This is something so and so should know about ASAP." Meanwhile I'm thinking, "Yesterday's news."

And so if you've been following my personal Twitter feed you know that lately I'm all about my great parenting and how God commands my kids to acknowledge my great parenting. This swim suit spied at My Parents Were Awesome would enhance my great parenting, don't you think? You can tell it's the perfect swimwear for moms by how it accentuates the firmly-held hand of a young 'un being dragged to the water. Seriously, I hope someone on Project Runway makes this suit this season. It's freaking awesome! This is where you say, "Your obsessions are yesterday's news." Fortunately, I obsess a lot.

It's hard not to. Moms get the blame for everything and when they aren't the target for blame, then they are self-questioning or loathing. Choices, so many choices, with their pros and cons leave us looking over the fence where indeed the grass is greener (bending light, yo). Should I continue to pursue systems think, inquiry-based, performing/visual arts focused education for my kid in a happily diverse school? Or am I, like Hitler's mother, creating spoiled darlings by encouraging their artistic ambitions though they have no talent? (Yeah, she totally got the blame for that! Fortunately, my spoiled darlings do have talent.) Screw it. If I'm going to mess up my ankle biting rugrats no matter what, then I'm going to have fun and I'm going to do it in that swimsuit.
