His daughter is four months old now. We’re approaching lift-off.
This week has had me seriously considering doing something unthinkable to get myself some jail time, or hospital time to get some effing peace, quiet & space from the devil that lives inside this child...
He’s literally sending me to the brink of insanity and all the coffee in the world is not helping 😭
This week I’m going to a parenting workshop that’s aimed at regaining parental control and effective discipline for strong willed children (that’s putting it very nicely)
Essentially I just need help letting him know that I’m the parent, I’m the boss & that he doesn’t control me.
I think it’s super important to constantly work on yourself & your relationships with those around you, it’s constant daily maintenance and when you slip up, you fall so hard on your face you think there is no coming back from it.
Might even fit some therapy in this week somewhere, (retail or otherwise COUGH COUGH) to get me through the shit storm that is my two year old...
All your good thoughts and prayers will kindly be accepted via my PayPal account to fund my therapy 👍🏻 #terribletwos #mumofboys #motherhoodunplugged #mumming #shitshow #kidsareassholes #cuntkid #sendhelp #selfreminder #workingonmyself #maintaineveryday #mumandson #idolovehim #mumlife #motherhoodthroughthelens #mamablog #mumblog #momlife #momblogger
I think that cost me my tip.
Happy 8th birthday to Detective Munch, my Zelda-playing, Beatles-loving, brother-cuddling, book-reading, first-born pain in the ass! #birthday #birthdayboy
This photo was taken about a year before my first son was born, but the confusion-verging-on-anger-with-a-side-of-buzzed is a pretty good representation of how parenting makes me feel most of the time. #flashbackfriday #fbf
I don’t get cheesy often, because it makes my stomach hurt. But the one time I do is around my kids’ birthdays, and Detective Munch turns 8 tomorrow! So today I’m sharing an older post about some of the fun stuff that comes with being a dad. (I could only come up with six.) Check it out via the link in my bio! #birthday #cheesy #sappy #sentimental #beingadad
My mum had all of these old school projects of mine. This is from . . . 2nd grade, I think? I fucking hated dresses because I always wanted to be a boy, but had a couple that were tolerable. I wore them on day 1 of the school year and picture day to make my parents happy.
I'm pretty sure it was this year that a boy flipped up my skirt and made me hate dresses even more. Sexual harrassment and the disrespect of a female's right to feel comfortable and safe in public starts so goddamn early. It's not cute and it isn't funny - it's traumatic. Especially as a child who suffered from sexual abuse and already hated males, no boy ever really tried to make me feel like my thoughts that they were all disgusting, horrible monsters was incorrect.
If you have a son, teach him to treat ALL other humans with dignity and respect.

Give or take five and a half years...
On Saturday, it will be 8 years since Detective Munch was born and I became a father. On Sunday, it will be 8 years and 30 days from when we missed the deadline to drop him at the fire station and I became completely stuck. MEMORIES! #tbt #throwbackthursday #birthday #newdad #safehaven
