You didn't just say that to me....

Let's see.... how many times have I heard this phrase this summer:

"Well, at least you only have one to deal with!"

Does that mean I don't have a right to look disheveled and tired? Does that mean I don't feel empathy for other women who fall into bed at night wondering desperately when school is going to start again?

No, I have every right. I am a mother of one, and one is plenty hard!

Some people are SO inconsiderate or don't think what they say before they open their month. Sorry that happened!

People are so rude! I get that one a lot too. I am actually naughty and end up telling that person why I only have one child and they shut up pretty fast. Then I pray that they keep their mouth shut the next time they want to say something like that!

I think I have probably thoughtlessly said that to you at some point (definitely not meaning in this way, of course) - so apologies for that - however, as a mother of 3, I will tell you that I think one child is probably the hardest number of all! (3 makes me want to lose my mind sometimes, but at least they can entertain each other between the fighting about who gets the fiona dress up)! Motherhood is motherhood and motherhood is dang hard.
