So I know it's a stage and he'll be moving on to another, equally awful one

special thanks to Marelle, who bolstered me with cheerful words about how it really might get worse before it gets better (as her children were screaming maniacally in the background, so much that she had to yell the words at the moments they gasped for breath, the little monsters)

I'll send your favorite saying right back to you...

In the words of Jack Nicholson:

"I'm drowning here. And you're describing the water!"

I knew I was going to get it, so here I am. :)

I was cracking up so bad as I hung up thinking how my children must have sounded in the background.

I was attempting . . . positivity and empathy! :) If I was there, I would hopefully relieve you and you'd have an evening out. Big Promise! :)

I'll shut up now. :)

P.S. I love that quote! I will try and adhere better to it myself. heehee :)

Ha just today as I yelled at the kid in the backseat i ca;;ed my other friend with child to laminet about my evil spawn. For the first time in my life i uttered these words "i brought you into this world and i can take you back out"

The sad part is im a total slacker mom so if im upset she clearly was in the wrong.
