Just a bit of venting today.
Hey, its my blog after all.
And life isn’t just a bunch of fluffy kittens and rainbows.
I’m just feeling blah about parenting and what it really means.
You see, in my life, I have a parent that wants the accolades without many any of the responsibilities.
And, really, it has been like that for the bulk of my life.
I know there are as many parenting styles as there are women taking up the mantle of “mom”.
And I could have had it worse.
I could have been neglected.
I could have been made to feel as if I wasn’t worth the labor it took to bring me into this world.
Intellectually, I know all of that.
Emotionally, I wanted…I want…more.
Yes, even at the ripe old of age of almost 36 (birthday is July 11. Feel free to get me a present!).
And I want more for my children from their grandparent.
Being a real parent takes a lot of thought and action.
I want a parent in deed.
So that I may have a parent, indeed.
