Parenting is hard y'all. God, why do we birth people we can screw up so completely? Parenting a sensitive kid is ...ugh. Why aren't I a better person?

Being a sports sideline parent is the worst. I am not meant for it. 30 seconds into my kids first game I was already squaring off with this overly invested opponent Mom and feeling all the feels for our little Bad News Bear team. Why aren't I a better person?

Days when I have PMS-rage (which through tracking apps I have discovered is REAL and it really is this unstoppable rage followed by deep dip depressions) working with children is horrible. They will annoy you. Wrath will be unleashed. Guilt will be felt. Why aren't I a better person?

You know those obit/inspiring bits about changing one persons life and leaving the world better than you found it? Yeah, I don't think I'm in any danger there.

Excuse me, I'm going to eat chocolate and buy something online.
