...today has been sooo challenging! Constant bickering, Dominic shrieking his head nigh off for every little thing, school not getting done, laundry not put away, butter not finished, me in need of a shower, the house only half-vacuumed with the vacuum lying in the hall, my milk not letting down (on account of stress, no doubt), and to top it off, one of the kids offering a display of unmitigated gall in the form of using sarcasm on a stretched-taut mother. This made clear to me how totally lacking this kid is in self-preservation skills. I usually try to forego sweets and wine on Fridays, but I think I could use a glass or two of wine and a pint of ice cream. And a long, hot shower.
Only the baby sucking on the drawstring of my sweatshirt can still bring a smile to my face!
