You may have noticed that our funny little commentaries were getting increasingly...ummm. What's the word we're looking for? Violent. That's because we were starting to get angry. You see, some of these stories were really, really hard for us to read. And Kate and I cried more than once. As a matter of fact, I've been a sniveling wreck for the past two days. The Cap'n kept glancing at the calendar and then looking confused. And although the whole purpose of this blog is to always find the funny, sometimes that wasn't easy. Except for the guy who stole all the spoons and the parts of the lamps. We want to party with him.*
For those mommies who shared these stories with us - thank you. We gave you our feedback and as usual, it was completely useless. But there are other women out there who have been dealing with similar experiences, who may now feel a little less alone. And while bashing your ex for the sake of getting your B on isn't a cool thing to do, almost all of you who wrote to us had very serious things to get off your chests. And a little venting every once in a while never hurt anyone.
We know there are days when it feels like there is no one out there who understands or appreciates what you're doing. Like no one sees how hard you're working and how at the end of the day - you always come last. That if someone could just really see you for who you are -just for a moment- that it might make it easier to do it all again tomorrow.
Well, we see you. And you're a hero. Like Buffy, only with a slightly bigger ass.
Some of us are lucky enough to have a partner who gets it. Maybe not all the time, but who tries. Who loves with their whole heart. Even if you're not married to that person anymore or if they make a mess of things sometimes (yes, Lydia, we mean you) take a moment to appreciate your situation and their efforts.
Especially one who brings you coffee.
xo, Lydia & Kate
