I thought that as the kids got older I’d have more time to do with as I pleased. I just keep getting busier (working from home) and busier (working in Sophie’s class once a week) and busier (helping older kids with crazy-complicated homework projects) and busier (going to train to be a girl scout leader soon).
Speaking of busy — must run get girls ready to go out into the world.
but they at least don’t interrupt you when you are going potty, right?
don’t tell me no. i couldn’t handle it.
It’s not just me then. And I thought the baby and toddler bit was the most demanding – sheesh.
gah! you ladies are scaring me!
LOVE the new masthead.
reminds me of a bit of info my developmental psych prof told me nearly 20 years ago when i was a fresh faced doe eyed young mother to a busy toddler.
“our children need us mush more when they are adolescents than when they are small.”
of course i knew so much more in the trenches and harrumphed his opinion….nevermind he was a single father to three daughters…i was the mother of an 18 month old and knew everything there is to know about motherhood. LOL
fast forward a few years…i am now the mother of a 20 year old and two teenagers, a pre teen and a preschooler with special medical and learning needs and honestly, the bigger kids command more of my time, my energy and my focus than does my munchkin.
