Moving + A New Life = Stress





Here's how I know my stress-ometer is ticking at an unhealthy pace:  I start being annoyed and frustrated at my kids for being kids.  Right now I have too much to do and I remind them of this often.  And the more I remind them, the more frustrated I get.  Mom's BUSY, I say.  I have lots to do today.  But finally I started to realize I need to take a little more time to just be with them and really BE with them.

Butterfly faces to the rescue.  I'd be lying if I said it was smooth sailing the rest of the day...it wasn't.  But it was a lot better.  My kids need a little more of me so I'm signing off early--thinking of having a "Yes day!" where I say yes to whatever they want to do (within reason)--anyone else ever done that?  Have a great weekend!

Also--this is an official call for the Special Needs Spotlight!  Please email me at thislittlemiggy at gmail dot com if you'd like to participate.  Even if you're a sibling or a parent of an older child, or someone with has disabilities yourself.  I enjoy doing a different spin on the spotlight from time to time.

    1. Almost DBrez! This would be my first crawler, so I'm getting antsy for her to get going...although I don't know why she'll be into everything.
