in the beginning

well, in the beginning I was just me. then in the middle it was me and mike. now ...and I am not calling this the end LOL, but we seem to be multiplying. four kids. I don't think God knows me as much as people say. some days I feel a little like miss hanigan. only we have a boy in the mix..oh and I don't think I have ever made booze in my bathtub OR kissed a radio. "little girls, little girls, everywhere I eat sleep and breeeeaathe them." sing this in a drunken slur. oh and I don't really drink much.
you know what I don't get? if you stick around you may see this is a recurring question. I don't get why preschoolers learn through repetition. I mean I get it. sponges right? but can't they learn SOME things the first time. like that yelling "HEEEY" isn't the best way to get a sibling to stop. this is the music in my house.
I have decided the people that say "aw. cherish these moments. they will fly by,"haven't spent enough time around little children lately. LOL I do love kids not the people. I just like to love them from a distance sometimes. thank you Bette midler. you said it all so well

It always chaps me too, when people condescend to me, using Christian platitudes to deal with (minimize?) the very real life frustrations that happen as a parent... Like they've never been frustrated... sometimes, I need the Calgon moment (take me away...) Has nothing to do w/loving the kids, but the constant battle of being the dad & shaping them best I can & seeming to just struggle w/a temper... ooh! The only thing that makes it worse is the quoting of movies I haven't seen. Nice job Queenie!

Hey, if you need some help with bath tub brew, we're right around the corner.

I also don't know about the repetition thing. Mine knows he wants something after seeing a commercial just once. Yet I have to remind him constantly to say "please". As people said back in the 90's, what's up with that?
