First of all, I'm exhausted. There is no denying that. Being exhausted also makes me short fused. That is one reason I try to steer clear of anything that might be overwhelming, I don't want to go into any situation with myself or my kids at a disadvantage. I try to make each day flow as smoothly as possible with minimal crying (by them or me!). What I've come to realize with calling for back-up is that I don't get to parent alone. I then open myself to "help" from others that doesn't always come in the form that I want it. Today, I wasn't "in the mood" for any other's opinion by my own. SO, I took ALL 3 kids to church by myself!!! I dreaded it... put it off.... and then just jumped up and said, "Let's go!" We did it! I did it!!! We made it on time!!! First huge accomplishment! And, we made it through church with no issues!!!! Second HUGE accomplishment! Of course it helped that we had a birthday party to go to right after church so I
held that over their head would kindly remind them every now and then when they got squirmy and it worked!
