Three wet pants and I need a valium

Today when the children were all finally in bed I was just shaking from parts of the day. Today I found being a mom really hard... ya cause most days are a breeze. Pft.

But this afternoon was especially trying for me.
Two of the boys lied to me, one right to my face. I know this is going to happen more and more, and it is actually a sign of intelligence, but it makes me mad. Especially when it's over such stupid things. Grrrr!
I remember being this age; I remember lying to my mom.


We were invited over for dinner at the Brit's house and Nora wet herself 3 times while we were there. The crazy part is she only has accidents there because she never wants to stop playing with her little friends. I get it, but honestly I wanted to lose my mind. I was so tense when I left, I needed a Valium, but dinner was excellent.

I found myself daydreaming about New York a lot after the children went to bed and I was doing laundry.  It was nice to have a change of scenery. I was back in Central Park, it was sunny, and I could hear the man playing the violin. This is what I thought about in my daydreams...



I am grateful for the motorcycles I saw out on the road today. To me that is just as much a sign of spring as the snow melting. I love motorcycle season, I love motorcycles!

I am grateful for the most delicious gum I have ever eaten in my life today. I bought a few packs down in NYC.  This gum is to your taste buds what listening to a jazz saxophone is to your soul. If I have any readers in the USA, if I could sweet talk you into sending me more I would sing your praises forever because they don't sell it in Canada.

(This one and the mint ice cream one too)
I am grateful for my dear friend Garth and his continually wise council to me. I appreciate him and his wisdom. I am a very lucky girl to have such wonderful friends in my life. 

I am grateful that the summer is starting to look promising and not as depressing as it once did.
