     I think one of the things that frustrates me the most about some religious people is their idea that god needs to be their number one priority.  I've heard it over and over in weddings where the minister states that the couple must put god first before each other and then their marriage will succeed...that is such bull shit.  When people get married they should put their spouse as their number one priority.  No wonder so many people get divorced!

     Then when people have children the child should become their number one priority.  If you take some mystical being that isn't even physically there and put him/ her/ it as the number one priority then things become unreal.  Well the husband could say, "god told me to go to the baseball game and I am putting him first above all, even you!"  Or the wife could say, "god told me to not cook anymore because it is against his will, blah, blah, blah!"  It is so stupid to think that people would rely on something that can be created in one's mind so easily.

     I must go now because god told me to go eat ice cream...bye bye!

Kid Free

     I am one of the few privileged to be a stay at home mom.  I never imagined this life for me, but I am enjoying it.  Although, there are times that I need a BREAK!  My mom lives about 1.5 hours away and loves watching my son.  This week he stayed at her house for 2 nights...it was nice.  The problem is she is going back to work full time soon and won't be able to watch him like she has been.

     He started preschool back in January and attends 2 days a week for 2 hours; it's a small break that does help.  The thing is people who have jobs, like my husband, get days off; as a stay at home mom/ housekeeper, I rarely do.  Sometimes I feel like I am going to go crazy; especially on the days where my son is truly acting up.  Some days it's not that he's acting any different it's just my tolerance level is lower than normal...that's when I know it's time for a break.  Occasionally, my husband lets me have alone time on weekends while he takes our squirt out for the day and that helps.

     I know it won't be long until he is in school full time so I am trying to enjoy my time with him while I have it.  I shall take deep breaths and remember this time is short!
