Spring Break

Spring break just about killed me. Seriously. I feel like a wet puddle on the ground. It was through sheer will that I kept everyone held together for the week. Minor meltdowns aside, they all did pretty well, but it took an enormous amount of attention and energy. Big kids and little kids all had their moments. Heck, us adults had OUR moments! There were trips to the rodeo, concerts, bowling, friends who spent the night, shopping, dining and general frivolity. Maybe in there somewhere we made a few memories of the lovely kind.

Now I need a break from the break.....

I'm hearing you! Except only one of my kids were on spring break last week...the other two aren't out for another two weeks. So not looking forward to that.

But I am looking forward to my upcoming break. :-) Are you coming?

NOT even funny. Ours is coming up and they have Thurs and Fri prior to Easter off, then the WHOLE following week. They don't go back for 11 days.

my turn...

I don't want to grow up... I don't want to grow up... I don't want to grow up...

Leave me alone... Go away... I don't want to clean... I don't want to eat... I want to pee on a tree... I want candy... I want to play... I want to throw food... I want to smack my sister upside her head to get back at her for everything she did to me before I stick up for my self... I want that car seat, not mine... Leave me alone... No... No... NO... Go Away... This is mine... Give me your toys... I like to make smiley faces on the wall... Can I have a new marker to color on the wall with... I don't want to eat food... I want candy...


My head is spinning... That was only one night! As you said... I NEED A BREAK!

HUGS and Miss you!
