When I became a mom 11 years ago I had no clue what I was getting myself into.  I wasn't unfamiliar with kids considering I am the youngest of nine and by the time my first baby came around I had 26 nieces and nephews (I was born an aunt even).  I watched my nieces and nephews all the time and watched my siblings be parents.  I remember going into a store and seeing a parent yell or drag their kid into the store and thinking "I will never be that kind of parent, I will never do that to MY kid".  Little did I know that I would be that kind of parent more often than I would like to admit.  Being a mom is hard.  It's hard work and stressful and challenging and some days just plain suck.  But at the same time it's wonderful and so great too and there are days that are so awesome and so much fun and so rewarding.  For the days that aren't so great, I decided to make myself a little stash of treats and gum to get myself through the day.  Because some days you just need to hide from your kids and eat something to get yourself through the day :).
