    Yes Carrie the circle goes around. We all get pushed to the limits by our kids, no matter how old they get. Always and forever, thanks for sharing the reality of real life and making us aware of our sameness.

    And in writing this, you allow many of us to feel less ashamed and less alone too. Thank you, friend. (I’m up for a little tether ball competition anytime.) 😉

    Carrie, I used to sit on the kitchen floor and bang the cabinet doors to clear my head. You are allowed to lose your temper, it lets them know you are human. Great post!

    I.Love.You. Miss Kelly was right. You are amazing. Thank you for this post. Indeed you are not alone. Just ask Miss Kelly! My skin can turn a nice shade of green at times. I’m not proud of it but she only comes out once in a while and she does ride out gleefully on her broomstick as quickly as she came. LOL!

    Yes Yes Yes! I literally laughed out loud at the child at your bedside the day after vacation, asking when you were going to have fun. Laughed out loud. I have four, and they are now in the teen years (12-21) and I have had several opportunities in recent days to be around moms of littler ones. I want to hug each and every one of them. Littler ones are so exhausting and so amazing, all at the same time.
    Great post, my friend. I know MILLIONS of moms and dads can relate.

    Wonderful, as always. I absolutely agree with all the replies. How about the old standby, “I’m Bored…………”

    Great post! Absolutely can relate… but I threw a shoe and screamed at the top of my lungs. I felt so bad at the time but I guess we can’t all be perfectly controlled with our emotions all the time.

    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure
    things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points
    or suggestions? Thanks
