Bar Star …former

Inspired by the word prompt, EXCITED, offered by, Kristian. Please visit the link for more submissions, or to submit your own πŸ™‚

I used to be excited, 

For a night out…

Dinner with the girls,


Dancing our hearts out.


I am a mom now.

Does THAT stop me from going out?


I wish that was an acceptable reason. 

Laziness…is that what it is?

Low self-esteem…is that what it is?

Lack of expendable funds…is that what it is?

All of the above,

Or none.

I use my kids as the reason I don’t go out anymore,

But, I know, 

That is just a well-rehearsed excuse.

  1. I echo the above response. Does sitting on the deck for a few minutes count as going out? Yet, the prompt is ‘excited.” You likely hit a nerve with all Women/Mothers during parts of their life. A great post, SaraπŸ™‚

      1. When they are that age, you look forward to them being adults and sorting out their own problems.
        Well, I don’t want to burst that particular bubble…
