March Madness - Day 2
My parenting thought of the week. Some days you feel like you are in control of the chaos and other days you feel like you are just thrust into the middle of a swirling vortex of madness.
The best analogy I could think of is football. Sometimes a player comes into the game from the sideline, gets into the huddle, hears the play, gets into formation, and then runs the play. Sounds great, right? It would be pretty hard to run the play if you run onto the field when they have already hiked the ball. Well that is how I felt today. I woke up and as soon as I went into the living room the play was already happening. Kyle was playing with his cousin, who is 1 1/2, and by playing I mean running through the house like their pants were on fire. Tank was contributing to the atmosphere by actually believing that everyone under 3 feet tall had their pants on fire and had to knock them down so they could stop, drop, and roll. Then my wife had company over so there was a lively discussion going on in the dining room about lamps or throw rugs or something like that.=) But I beat my consecutive days alive streak so I can't complain about too much. Happy Friday everyone. Hope you are finding the positive.
I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.
