I really feel depressed today. We rented Coraline over the weekend and I thought it was a great movie. The only thing is, when we were watching it, my son speaks up and says, "You are just like her mom." Not the "Other Mother" who starts out being wonderfully nice and spends time with her and listens to her, etc., etc.
No. I'm the one who is too busy with work and tells her that she's bugging her and to go find something to do and don't bother Mommy.
What do you say to that? Yes, I'm trying to get my book ready and now it's almost to the deadline of the next issue of the magazine, but am I really that bad? Of course I'm all like, I am not! But, I can deny it all I want. Kids will tell you how it is and if that's how he feels, then it doesn't matter what you think. This has made me stop and reorganize my schedule around the kids. I mean, isn't that why we want to work at home anyway?
So, I learned a valuable lesson through a Tim Burton movie-how crazy is that?
Now, to make me feel better, I have sorted through my comments to find those awards that I haven't posted yet. Can I do that? Yes. I can. My mom said so.
The first one is from
She was so kind to give me this award. Thank-you and I will pick those 7 great blogs to give it to also.
The second is from
She thinks I have one lovely blog. Thank you to you too. I needed that.
So, next time you are thinking about giving another blogger an award, do it. They just may need the pick me up because they may be feeling like they are Coraline's mean mother too!
