Feel the love

Another Love Thursday has rolled around and you know what? Either my dosage of Zoloft has been up to the point that I am numb or the kiddos constantly acting like rabid ferrets fighting over a blob of peanut butter has finally gotten to me because I am just not feeling the love.

I mean, sure, I LOVE my kids and my husband and my friends and my family but I'm not feeling especially lovey dovey if you catch my drift. Sure, I could not do a Love Thursday post and just do a standard "dear God please help me not sell my kids to gypsies" post but I did take a picture last night- the last picture I took before Gavin threw my camera onto the ground and broke it- that pretty much sums up the kind of unconditional love I feel for my kiddos:

Day 35: Outtake or aka why I'll never master photoshop

Because if I can grow 'em, nourish 'em, raise 'em, play with 'em, and do everything I possibly can FOR THEM and they still climb all over me and pull my hair and grab at the boobages when all I want to do is spend five minutes on the Photoshop doing a little something just for ME and I still manage to not sell them to the gypsies?

Then that is love.

Happy Love Thursday.

Someday, the kiddos will appreciate all the unconditional love - probably when their future children terrorize them!

Hang in there!! :)

Just wanted to give you a little, "AAAAAA-men". To be able to not trade our kids in for (in my case, a dog) is the ultimate act of love.

On a side note: I've been feeling like my Zoloft hasn't been working very well, either. Have you ever thought about switching SSRIs?

Yes, that is indeed love! I think Heather hit the nail on the head - it'll be appreciated when your kids are crying to you about how THEIR kids are treating them!

Oh yea! I quit my job last May to stay home with my 3 and 5 year old full time. HOW glad was I when said 5 year old went to full-day kindergarten? There are no words. HOW sad am I that he's been home sick for two days, will probably be sick tomorrow and Monday is a school holiday? There are no words! YOU are a SAINT woman! A SAINT! Hoping that next week is tons more lovely!

Hang in there, chica--you're not alone. Besides, the gypsies would bring them back =)

Poor kid has no idea he just forfeited his "favorite kid" position by breaking that camera. ; )

ohh, kids are really not the most grateful creatures, or the most 'respectful to your things' creatures, but they may be the most loving! :)

Thanks for reading/posting, everyone.

PIT, no I have never thought about switching meds. Vitamin Z is my friend. I may go a little wonky at times but the benefits far outweigh any negatives.

LOL @ Dawnie Marie and toruguita.

Thanks again, everyone.
