The Ugly Truth

I try to maintain a sen of of zen when my children are driving me batty.

""He's young and still learning" I remind myself as I tell Alex to put his shoes away for the eighteenth time.

"This too shall pass" I serenely tell myself as Spain shrieks like a banshee in my ear.

"I am not bothered by the inconsolable screams of the youngest" my mind murmurs.

"I am a rock. Letting the flood of chaos fall off of me" I chant quietly as I realize it's been over a week since I talked to Sweet Husband.

"God help me!" I sigh as Spain starts his third hour of inconsolable screeching.

Then just as I'm teetering on the edge of insanity. Spain falls asleep. The shoes are put away. Sometimes, the dishes are even washed. I fall on the couch and put my feet up.

"Lord, thank you for wine, crossword puzzles and abstinence. Because after tonight I appreciate birth control."
