breathing.

because (occasionally) there are those bedtimes ...

that, honestly, make you want to initiate an online auction for your children.

-- with all the hyperactivity and crying and read-it-agains and whining and i-wannanother-snacks ...

the bidding will start at $1000. i am totally kidding about this option.

... or pour (at the very least) 3 more glasses of wine.

i am NOT kidding about this option.

and on very lucky days ...

you have your best(est) friend and her absolutely adorable gorgeous scrumptious - and also screaming and crying - baby girl spending a few nights with you ...

you just pour (at the very least) 3 more glasses of wine for each of you and giggle over pictures and notes and letters corresponding you across the country in high school.

and yeah. then you realize ... you could totally still be in high school worrying about boys and algebra.

that is when you realize ...

screaming babies are a breeze.

Say HI to Sara for me!

My little boy has decided that he no longer needs naps. And so my life as we know it is OVER. What will I do without my 3 hour break in the afternoon? WHAT??????

Thank god I have a box of wine!

Compared to high school? Um, YES! I'll take 10 more before I'd go through that again!

jUST THINK BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, YOUR KIDS WILL BE WORRYING ABOUT BOYS AND ALGEBRA - THEN YOU WILL BE RIGHT THERE ALL OVER AGAIN. AND YOU WILL BE WISHING FOR THE BEDTIME NIGHTMARE AGAIN!

GREAT POST!

Thanks for the perspective! We've had a lot of screaming babies around here lately and when you're smack dab in the middle of it, ebay sounds great!

With that positive attitude (and also with the wine) you can come to my house ANY time!

I have to say- reading this was excellent birth control. I honestly don't know how you girls do it!
