From Oprah’s Mom Show Yesterday

“Like when you drop your kid off at school and you try to keep it together for those 10 minutes when you see other people, and then you cry on the way home.” — Cheryl Hines

Not showering for days.  Throwing functional food together.  Reinventing yourself.  Trying to keep it together — and failing.

All I thought watching this yesterday was “Oh, thank God, I’m not the only one.”

If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.

    I felt the same way.. in fact… I wasn’t able to keep it together… I left him in his classroom and walked out and started bawling barely able to get out the door…

    it was an awful experience…
