Do you ever feel like a chocolate rabbit, and everyone keeps taking bites out of you? Today I felt like a chocolate rabbit. Now, I don't mean vicious bites. I mean the typical bites family takes out of us women. Specifically, the bites children take from their mothers. There, I said it. Does that make me a bad mother?
MY mother once told me, "Children are the beloved parasites." That sounds awful, till you really think about it. Yet it's the natural course of things and I would not trade motherhood for anything. Just a chocolate rabbit kinda day.
