Today is one of those days where those sweet kids whom I love so much are pushing every button and making me wonder if we are all going to survive summer vacation. Oh, the drama (You mean I was supposed to mow the WHOLE lawn?). Oh, the conflict (Mom, will you tell Sam to stop looking at me?)…at this moment, Josie is the only one not causing me fits, and that is only because she is asleep on my lap with a nipple in her mouth. She isn’t even nursing, just lolling there, but I know if I dare to move she will flip a lid.

I know I will look back on these days with wistfulness and humor, but right now it feels about as funny as a herpes outbreak.
