It is only 11am, but I'm just sure today is going to be better. Maggie has slept a lot and is much happier when awake. I suspect this is because she got SEVEN hours straight of sleep last night. Granted, she slept on me the whole time, but after a day of practically no sleep and hours of screaming I was glad to help. B is much better too. Oddly, I can say that even though he is now clearly sick. I think he has a cold and maybe that contributed to yesterday. I fear that Maggie will get it and fevers at her age (should she get one) are scary. We are in super hands washing mode, but will be OK. We even made yummy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies this morning.
I know I am not one of those moms that constantly says her kids are perfect and actually think that is pretty healthy. I don't want you to be overly negative or critical either. Interestingly, I found an a series of blog posts right on point today. See here - and the link the her blogher article on it. I hope I'm finding the balance in my writing as well as in how we work through our days together. Thanks for reading and thanks for your encouragement!
