the old woman in the shoe

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe,

She had so many children she didn't know what to do!

So she gave them some broth without any bread,

And she whipped them all soundly and sent them to bed!


Is it ironic that this was my favorite nursery rhyme as a child?

I guess I could have predicted my future...

Today was a much better day and perhaps I just needed to whip them all soundly and send them to bed.

In all actuality, I took a bunch of Benadryl and put myself to bed. Dad was in charge of the kids. Yeah Dad!

I am feeling better today!

Not much has been marked off of my frustration list. I still don't have that much needed bunk bed. That basket of socks? Yep... still sitting there. And the stupidest dog in the world? He learned to jump over a 6 foot privacy fence today.

But school was much better. I enjoyed it. The kids enjoyed it. We learned a lot and there was no screaming (from the little blond child) and no crying from the rest of us.

Thank you God!
