Really that saying should be, "When Mama has no quantifiable evidence whatever that anything she is doing is producing even the slightest positive result, then nobody's happy..." Yeah, the other has more of a ring to it, I know.
All I can say is that I'm glad that there is no such thing as Mom Idol. If my kids were the judges, they would all be Simon and my performance today would be worse than a theme-park performance. If they were the viewers at home, I would not get any votes.
One last thought before I go curl up under my covers in the fetal position and have a very dramatic and cathartic fall-apart:
I'm glad that at least other people's children like me.
