Working together

Every once and a while I get little reminders after working two night tshifts in a row that my body is getting older. READ: I'm so tired, I might fall asleep while standing. Let's be honest, those days I don't bring my A game in terms of quality parenting.

Typically, these are the mornings that my children decide to embark on great new dangerous or LOUD forms of play. But eeevvvveerry once in a while, the stars align just right and instead they choose beautiful, happy, let's-pretend-we-are-all-best-friends-all-day together time. It is glorious and yet dangerous all the same. You see, these are the days I look at my kids and say, "Oh, we could totally do four".


Typically directly following that train of thought, is some major life-affirming meltdown between siblings and all is once again right with the world.

A calm post-shift Sunday afternoon is still quite the present though! So thankful!

You just give Aunt Maxey a call when you start thinking those thoughts and I'll remind you of how much easier your life becomes each time you send another little bitty off to school 2 or 3 days a week. :) You are doing just perfectly fine right now! <3
