mommy math

As a parent, it's easy to feel like a failure sometimes.  There's a lot to do and never enough time to do it.  It'll seriously drive you insane.  (Think about your mom - you think she was always that crazy?  No.  You made her that way.)  But I've discovered that the key to keeping your sanity often comes down to basic math. On any given day, if you subtract your "fails" from your successes, things don't seem so bad.  Take for example my day today: I didn't do laundry, my kitchen floor is sticky, and our dinner tasted like Auschwitz rations.  BUT... Annie, her best friend who slept over, AND Estie are all still alive, and relatively free of bodily injury.  For those of you unfamiliar with addition,
3 fails
       -3 living kids

          EVERY TIME.
YAY, FORTS! Clean living rooms are over-rated.
