Today I do not want to be a mother.
I won't apologize for that statement.
Because it's true.
I'm sure all mothers have those days. I just want to be left alone to my thoughts. I want to read a book for hours without interruption. I want to lay down and watch a movie. I want to go somewhere fun with my husband. I want to sleep in. I don't want to change diapers, clean snotty noses, watch oatmeal covered hands, whip down yogurt crusted highchairs, entertain children, or cook meals.
I just want to do my own thing today.
I want to be selfish.
Which, unfortunately, is not an option when you have the title of mother.
