Thank Goodness I look good in green

Some days I feel like the best mother on the planet like I just have parenting down pat and I could handle five more kids if I had them. And then I have days like I have had yesterday and today when my children behave like they have been raised by rabid coyotes! Its also on these days when the women that seem to have it so together makes me so green with envy. I want to just go over and mess up their perfect hair and break their perfectly spiked stilettos. (by the way those heels are not a good look at field day and normally I wouldn't say anything but I am exhausted and it irked me)

Its hard to not wonder what you are doing wrong when you look over at perfectly behaved children holding hands with their perfectly put together mother and probably reciting the Lord's prayer while yours are face planting mud puddles and asking the police officer if he sleeps in big boy underwear. I mean really...WHY DOES HE SAY THESE THINGS?? I do the things people/books tell you to do with children. I am consistent with punishment and rewarding yet somehow my children are always the ones streaking through church or licking random children or freeing the animals at the fair.

I love my kids and I don't want to change their spirit for life or the excitement they have for everything but I do realize that their behavior is a reflection on me since moms get the blame for everything...right? I for one would like to say that not all behavior is learned. I have never patted my doctor's boobs...EVER or painted another person in peanut butter and rolled them in the sand.

I am not typically a jealous person. I guess this comes from just being satisfied with who I am. I like myself, my family and the things we have worked for. I just cant help but get a little jealous though when I see someone have such a handle on something that I am dedicating my life to being good at. I don't like feeling jealous or even feeling like I wish my children were any different than they are because at the end of the day I love them just like they are but envy is natural emotion I guess. Plus I play it off good I just tell myself she probably has vodka in that coffee mug and if that don't work I just take the  jealousy for what it is and accept that envy green is a good shade for me!
