Ordinarily I am a card-carrying agnostic but today I am ready to drop to my knees and give thanks to the Galactic Amoeba if it means that MLM will conk off early and give me a wide berth before he does so.
Today has been mind-numbingly exhausting and I have begun to think that I’ve lost my temper for the last time with no clear map to find it again. I certainly wanted MLM restrained in one place. And since they don’t have straitjackets in preschooler size…well you get my drift.
Some days are so extraordinarily taxing that you end up questioning what the heck you thought you were getting into when you were happy to see those 2 red lines. Let me illustrate- I’ve had dinosaurs in my food, in my coffee, in front of my face, going up my nose, peeking into my ear and all because I sought to foster his love for the wretched reptiles by buying him more dino figures to boost his pretend play and keep him from the evils of the idiot box! *bangs head against the wall*
Right about now I have no problem if he turns into a tater tot on his way to becoming a couch potato if it means I’ll get 2 minutes of peace while I use the loo.
Till then I’ll give my knees some workout and pray for sleep… He that sleeps feels not the tooth-ache.
Or the aches brought on by the force of nature in the guise of a child!

I wish I could say it will get better, but such is the life of a parent. I don’t know how many times I groaned, “and I volunteered for this?”
Today was a doozy alright! I kept saying to myself, “What was I thinking??!!”
Luckily I have graduated. All mine are grown and gone. Thank you Jesus!
