Have you ever found yourself the subject of the glares, "stare downs" & disapproving looks from others while standing in line at the grocery store, the bank, or just about anywhere, while you go about getting done what you need to amidst what is your own little circus of activity & chaos?! You know what we are talking about here right? You've finally got the grocery cart full, & likely a few extra items that you are not yet aware are in there, & you are just about to the finish line . . . aka your vehicle with everyone strapped in accounted for. Then it happens. The world tips ever so slightly off it's axis & your sweet wee ones now need everything from YOU & RIGHT NOW! There is no waiting, there is no "you can have some grapes when we get home honey," . . . there isn't even a "you can have a cookie as soon as Mommy pays for them sweetie." NOPE! It just isn't going to fly & even the most skilled of negotiators would find themselves hopelessly lost at any attempts to bring peace & order to what is happening right now. Why? Well probably because first of all we need to actually understand WHAT IS happening right now & sometimes there just is no answer to this other than "well what was working 5 minutes ago no longer is so . . . ?"

So bring on the disapproving stares, "tsk-tsk's" & the "back in my day" comments. This IS our circus yes, these ARE our monkeys you betcha & we LOVE every glorious, crazy, wonderful, drive-you-nuts-but-wouldn't-have-it-any-other-way second of it! Yup, long after the bedtime stories, hugs, kisses & "I love you" goodnights are done, we will be laying in bed wondering "what the heck was life even like before all this!?" THIS is LIVING xo
