This is normal, I’ve seen it who knows how many times. I had a coworker who would tell these cute stories about her kids that made it obvious she was a cool mom, but some days she would be in semi-meltdown mode where she just wanted to go bar-hopping with her husband and get drunk and get laid, and it was hard to be spontaneous any more when it took three days just to get a sitter.
