I have a confession to make.
Sometimes I feel lucky to be a parent with joint custody.
I LOVE having my children with me. They are amazing individuals and we have such a good time together. I absolutely love watching them grow and there are days when I can’t wait to have a more mature relationship with them as they become teens and then adults. I can’t wait to see them follow their dreams and become who they are meant to be. I can’t wait to see them fall in love and choose the amazing partners that I know are going to feel so lucky to love them.
I also look forward to the days when they head to their dad’s. My ex and I have shared custody. Due to his work schedule, I get them a little bit more than he does. This means that I have about five nights to myself every two weeks which includes every other weekend. I have the luxury of having a social life if I want to. I can have the house to myself and enjoy the silence.
It’s a silence that I desperately need.
I’m a mom and that is my confession.
Speaking of being a mom, CBS has a new show starting September 23 about being a less-than-ideal mom.
Aptly named, MOM, it is a comedy produced by Chuck Lorre and starring Anna Faris and Allison Janney. Faris plays, Christy, a newly sober single mom who is trying to raise two children during trying times. Janney plays her estranged mother who reappears in her life full of passive-aggressive insights into Christy’s life.
Check out a preview of this new show.
Looks funny, right? I’m looking forward to watching it and hoping I don’t relate too much! MOM premieres on CBS Monday, September 23, 2013 at 9:30 EST/8:30 CST.
What’s your mom confession? (Dad’s can confess, too!)
