Dear Kids – Nasty, Nasty Tissues

Dear Kids,

Being a mom means that in my environment there are tissues…everywhere. There are tissues  – USED tissues – in the pockets of every item of clothing I own. There are tissues on the floors, behind cushions in the furniture, in my purse, and on the counters. There are tissues overflowing from every trash can in the house. I am constantly picking up tissues! And, God knows what’s in them! Very few of these tissues actually contain my own bodily fluids. And – No – it isn’t any less gross just because I’m a mom. It’s gross. Insanely gross.

Are you handing me another tissue??

Are you handing me another tissue??

  1. Both of mine have colds right now. You’re right. Just because you’re their mother doesn’t make it any less revolting.

    • Exactly! I woman once came up to me and said, “You’re a mom – do you have a tissue I could borrow?” Not one that’s clean, lady. You’ll need to see a single person for that.
