Attack of the Mommy Brain
I so have little motivation to write. Actually, I have a lot of motivation to write but little to write about. I´ve been on full Mom mode since Tuesday. Mr. Rant was prisoner in a hell of a place called São Paulo working. He was then stuck working in an even worse spot this weekend, Barra!
Yes, I do suffer from Zona Sul elitism. Actually, it´s worse. I bascially enjoy my neighborhood and the surrounding ones best. You can even count Leme. I like Leme. They have pools on the beach for my boys. I mean, pools on the beach! That´s as evil genius as you get! The sand of the beach with the convenience of a kiddie pool.
See, see where my mind is. My head is wrapped around juice boxes and poopy diapers, kiddie toys and parquinhos (parks). You really can´t get that sarcastically sassy when you are searching for a shovel. What can I say, my hands are tied with Playdoh and bristle blocks.
Not to worry, it´s Monday and a new week! Oh wait, the school will be shut Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. It´s closed Tuesday for whatever the hell Catholic Saint´s day it is and on Monday because Tuesday is a holiday. That just burns my butter. What the hell is that? You can´t just make Monday a holiday because Tuesday is one! Then the school looked at me, put up a talk to the hand hand, and asked me what the hell I was going to do about it.
Well I´m going to bitch on my blog! So there! I´m taking my ball and I´m going home.
Yeah, basically I took it where they wanted to put it. They are also closed Friday for Teacher´s day. That is another load of poop. I consider Teacher Day like Father´s Day. It´s a day for them to spend with the kids. Now Mother´s Day is also a Day for Dad to spend with the kids. Like that, don´t you?
Daring to sound fuzzy and positive, I have been enjoying my little monkey. Not a derogatory term, I did, in fact, give birth to little monkeys! We´ve gone to every playground imaginable, cooked together, finger painted, regular painted, played everything possible, and snuggled. I´m not stupid, I know they are at the age where Mommy is cool and they want to hang with me. Soon enough they will get delusional and think I´m not cool. Crazy, I know!
