Have you ever

Have you ever...

Held it together all day in the midst of wanting to scream out of frustration, then burst into tears the minute they go to bed because you feel guilty that you get that frustrated with your kids?

Said to your kid, "Mom just told you not to throw your sucker in the car...until I said I was ready?"

Switched outfits mid-day not because you have a baby that spit up on you but because you spilled your new happy hour Route 44 drink on yourself?

Willingly chosen Yo Gabba Gabba for the kids to watch since one more episode of Barney was gonna make the difference between normal-you and crazy-you?

Have you ever hidden the loud toys from your kids so you can actually hear the news?

Have you ever told your daughter that you love her while putting her to bed and heard, "Well I don't want to say that to you mommy. I want to say night night to Ty. Bye brother I love you!" and been pleasantly surprised that it didn't hurt your feelings because HELLO your kids love each other. Who knew?


Have you ever looked long and hard for your toothbrush only to give up, open a new one, then find yours in your 17 month-old's bed? Clasped in her little hand while she sleeps, no less?

Well then I guess I'm talking about MY life, not yours.

Happy weekend.

The toothbrush in hand made me laugh out loud! All I can say is, I'm fairly sure I'v been there, or at least in the neighborhood... and man, those days are hard! I hope you have a refreshing nights sleep and wake up with an overflowing tank of patience in the morning!
