An important part of being a good mom is to make sure you take care of yourself as well as your children. If you don't take time to pamper yourself
every so often on a daily basis, you can't be doing your job as a parent well enough. If Oprah says it's true, so shall it be....
With this in mind, I'm at my daughter's soccer practice today, in the oppressive heat, watching these girls play their little hearts out and sweating up a storm. They take a break and walk towards us and I immediately get the Gatorade out and down that thing in about three seconds flat. (No joke!)
My whiney kid proceeds to complain about, "dehydration", "dizziness", etc. The standard stuff. I explain to her that I'm being a good mom right now and to come back if she experiences any loss of vision.
Besides, she looked fabulous. She must have lost two pounds of water weight. I could almost see all her ribs! If I had coddled her she would have gotten all bloated and no one worth a damn would be her friend. She's seven years old! It's about time I teach her to be ashamed of her body. I did her a favor.
Now, the practice is over and here come the complaints again!
"I'm thirsty""I'm hungry""Who's my real dad?""My daughter is going into diabetic shock, can we have your orange juice?!"
Me, me, me, me, me!!! Get your own damn orange juice; besides it's not even orange juice it's Sunny D.
So, after finishing my "SUNNY D" I left the field feeling like I'm living my best life!
