It’s Not All Mary Poppins


Busy weekend. Headed out Saturday to city three and a half hours away for a dinner. Stayed overnight for the wedding the next day. Home late last night. (Late by my early-to-bed standards.) Straight into work again this morning. Not a single moment to relax, decompress, not be “on”.

I want to go to bed now.

I woke up wanting to go to bed. This is not a good thing.

Three one-year-olds today, two of whom are experiencing a bit of “WTHAY(AWDYDWMM)”? Thankfully, their cases are mild, but still… It requires me to be caaaaalm, and yet PERKY!, soooooooothing and yet cheery!, reeeeeelaaaaaxed and yet upbeat… in just the right measure, the balance ever adjusting to their responses, so as to keep everyone cheerfully calm, perkily soothed, relaxedly upbeat.

I’m exhausted.

But we had a largely tear-free morning, and! they’re all napping now. 😀

And now, if you’ll all excuse me, I think I’m just going to make myself a nice, soothing, relaxing cup of tea, which I will drink cheerfully on the sunny porch.
