I stole this idea from things I can't say . I thought it would be perfect for this blog. It's about not taking things so seriously. Sometimes you have to just sit back and say, "It's ok!" to do certain things that not everyone may agree with.. something like this:
It's OK to celebrate when it's time for your kids to go back to school. Anyone who has more than 1 child (and that are fairly close in age) knows how insanely annoying it can be to listen to fighting, arguing, and whining all day long. Enjoy the silence while you can get it, for your own sanity!
It's OK to buy yourself something nice once in awhile. Don't beat yourself up with guilt because you have 3 kids at home. They will survive and you deserve something nice once in awhile.
It's OK to get some YOU time, even if it means locking yourself in the bathroom, ignoring the knocks and "mommy, he did this!" until they go away. Again, enjoy every little bit of silence you can get before you end up in a straight jacket.
It's OK to have a sip of wine, or liquor, whatever is your drink of choice. Just because you are a parent doesn't mean you don't deserve to have a little bit of fun.
It's OK to miss the freedom you had before having kids. We all miss it. Ohhh, how I miss it. All of the travelling I did and the fun that I had. Soo many wonderful stories.
It's OK to think of the violent things you would like to do to your husband when he really pisses you off! Just don't carry them out. You get no liquor in prison.
It's OK to NOT be perfect in front of your kids. No one is perfect. NO ONE. As long as you are good to your kids, they will love you despite your imperfections. Don't beat yourself up about them.
It's OK to fart in front of your family and/or friends. No really, it's a basic bodily function. Why are we so embarrassed about it? Everyone does it! Don't lie!
It's OK to think more of your internet friends than you do your real friends. Honestly, most people suck anyway. Sometimes it's best to keep your friends at bay, behind a computer screen. People are assholes.
