Today was one of those days when I felt the strain of having a 5 year old, a 3 year old, and a 3 month old. You know the kind of day..the three year old needs to be put down to nap while the baby is crying loudly in his bouncy seat and the five year old wants help starting her computer winnie the pooh game. You spend an hour revolving among those three situations, trying to have patience and knowing that if you get frustrated, it will all fall apart very quickly. The phone in our room where the three year old is sleeping interrupts the nap and wakes up a very grumpy little girl. After a little fruit snack and a lot of cuddles, she perks up. I think the most difficult part of the day has passed, when my husband calls out from our room,”Susan, have you seen this?” That can’t be good. The three year old has written on my “good” sheets and my pillowcases in black pen! ARGGG… So if you are reading this and know how to take out black pen from sheets and can pass along the tip, I would appreciate it. And send up a prayer for a mom who is as impatient as her children are stinkers!
