The Other Woman

  This is a difficult subject to navigate. We all have been there. We all have those moments in our lives when we deal with that other woman. The one that has just enough control over your lives to make them difficult.

I hereby tenure my resignation for the position of mother. 

I have been doing this job now for almost 9 years and today I just need to quit.
