the frustrated mom

because they don't understand.

because there really is a tangible disconnect between the parents and the non-parents.

because what happens to them doesn't translate as well when it happens to a child.

because they don't know what a lack of sleep or a worried mind can really mean.

because your soul is dedicated to something different than theirs, but you're too smart to tell them that. (because you're a parent.)

because you can't jump up and down and scream "She fell on her head, you idiots! Don't you get it? Don't you care?"

because they are made in such a way and underdeveloped in such a way that no, they really don't care.

because so many of them worry that no one gets them, that they are being disrespected, that they are not treated as equal.

because they all forget we conceived them, we birthed them, we raised them and loved them, and they never need validation to know that they are enough, just the way they are.

even though they'll never get it until they get it.

**Disclaimer: I have NO idea why I was being so judgmental this day, but if you know me, you probably know that's just how I am sometimes - rude and judgy and mean.
