So today was one of those days where the best you can do is coast. The intentions fall by the wayside (funny how none of them involved the reality of a post-vaccine 20-month-old nipple leech). There’s no room for reflection. The best I can hope to do is notice when I yell at all the grumpy children and leave the room for some quick deep breaths. Then: back into the fray.
So what have I learned from this little episode wading into the whitewater?
1. Edamame (in pod) are the perfect food for a three-year-old. They squip everywhere and are delicious and nutritious; Ezra was helpless with laughter at their antics. Plus, it made him want to help serve his brother. Ha.
2. Chalk is not a comestible.
3. I have no problem medicating (mildly) an obscure but persistent misery in my kids. Hey, he had a vaccine. Chillax.
4. Dessert beer is a category.
No wisdom here. Just moving with the current. You?
