My Journey Through Postpartum and Life After I Kicked It's A$$!!!

Teach your kids love, patience, and kindness…

I can’t even put into words the magnitude of grief I feel for all those affected by this senseless act of violence. I won’t even probe on gun control at this time. I just want to express my deepest of sadness and condolences for those poor kids and staff who lost their lives to someone who was afflicted by mental illness. It does not even make sense to me why he had to go to the school to do more damage after he had already killed his mother. WHY???? WHY???? WHY???? The kids? They were merely 6 years old. What did they do?

While my mom and I sat in pure shock… she told me an old Korean adage. That “life without children is freedom from stresses and fear.” I told her, but a “life without children is a life without knowing love.” What’s worse? I can’t even fathom the grief the families must be going through because I am sitting here still in disbelief and tons of sadness. To know such pure love of innocent youth and to have that unconditional bond be so abruptly taken away is the worst form of punishment on earth. But to seek comfort, I hope they feel blessed to have known each of those pure souls for even those short six years.

I ache wondering if the children suffered. If it hurt. And I pray that they didn’t. I pray they didn’t have enough time to know fear or to feel pain. And I hope that all twenty children and seven adults closed their eyes and went to heaven immediately.

He did the cowardly thing taking his own life. I hope he is burning in hell and feeling the wrath of all those he affected. And yet, I wonder too… what torment did he go through in his lifetime that he so viciously and maliciously wanted to afflict the same grievous amount of hurt onto the world.

It’s crazy that in my last post, I prayed for a more evolved, positive world… and just a few short minutes later… this tragedy was on the news. I prayed to God that He would help me understand this. Why things like this happen, because right now, I still can’t seem to find a justification. Not for this one, not for the Wisconsin, Virginia, Columbine, movie theatre, mall or all the other mass shootings… I need to know why.

My friend, George Mitrospetros, wrote it best on his Facebook wall:

“There is no flag large enough apology big enough….no explanation of evil…to cover the shame of one killing innocent people ESPECIALLY our CHILDREN…… I am ashamed to be human…the most stupid senseless of all animals….”
I agree with him. It’s not the gun that hurts the person, it’s the human behind the gun. We definitely need some sort of mandate and policy on controlling the distribution of guns. It is way out-of-hand.

Sorry for all the errors, but I wrote this truly disturbed and in a state of utter disappointment at the world we live in.

It is true too, that the media needs to stop sensationalizing this situation. Because it is going to prompt the next idiot to do something worse to top this and become a household name. Remember the innocent people and their sacrifice. Not the killer.


Told my BFF who has four kids to look like this when her hubby comes home

So my BFF, Suj, and I have been having random meltdowns for this and that.  And yes, to some, we may seem like spoiled little brats.  But we are not.  We are human.  Like you.  Like anyone else.

We have a texting love affair going on.  So, she’s the first person and last person I contact throughout the day.  Yes, it’s crazy.  But yes, we are addicted to each other and as my sister said… “we are making up for lost time.”

Well, Friday night during our texting session… she was having a colossal meltdown.  Just tired of the same ole dinner and bedtime routine.  (Let me tell you… that’s one of the most drawn out routines in my household as well).  Can you imagine what that is like having four different bedtime routines for four kids all under the age of 5?  So, she was going to make a clean break and get a breather.  Then… mission aborted.  Why?  Because her husband decided to do the “Oh but when you want to meet your friends, you get a burst of energy.”  Oh man… I’m doing the Shanaynay…”no, you di n’t” finger shake, hip tilt, with head roll.  Yep.  No he didn’t.

But it’s funny… I say the same thing to my husband.  He’s tired all the time after work.  And so, I find it ironic how every time he has a poker night or wants to hang with the boys… all of a sudden a second wind.  So maybe, I shouldn’t say it to him.  I know it didn’t feel good for my BFF when her husbinator said that to her, right?  Well, here’s the difference.  My husband and her husband (yes, they work hard!!!  Good God… I get it.  I give it up to him/them…they deserve a Nobel Prize for the Art of Working hard… Ok… I’m being facetious.  They do.  They work hard to afford us all a great life)… did not pop out four kids or even one for that matter out of their bodies.  Making a human being for ten months inside your belly wasn’t easy work.  Nope… not at all.  And even though, they are not physically in our bodies anymore… making a good, moral having human being on a daily basis is also hard work.

So men/partners, if the lady gets a second wind!!!!…. CONGRATULATE HER.  End of story.
