This story reminded me of my five grandchildren and their mom. Most moms do hide out in the bathroom. What a cute story with a happy ending.
Love your title. And your story is both real and tender. I know it will be an encouragement to other sometimes desperate moms.

For some reason I produced my first child without knowing that I would sometimes feel angry toward her, and that feeling anger didn't make me a horrible person. Ignorance is not bliss. Thanks for sharing so well.
This was cute--I especially like the first half with the "British lady" in the bathroom.
I like it!
Hi Dena. I just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, Warning Explosive Mother, actually did very well in the Light and Dark Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 1, placing 6th in that Level. There were a lot of entries this week, and competition in Level 1 is always very intense, so give yourself a pat on the back. :-)

If you'd like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:

The highest rankings are posted every Thursday evening on the Message Boards.

Hope to see you at the FaithWriters' Conference in August. Itís going to be an amazing time of inspiration, information and encouragement.

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
