If I had hair, I’d be pulling it out

I’m already stressed out about my doctor’s appointment this morning and the kids have been at each other’s throats since waking up. That’s just adding to the stress.

I don’t know what’s going on with the kids today but they’re a handful and that’s saying something.

While I’m frustrated, I’m so proud and grateful that both went to school without any resistance. That makes life so easier. I have a few appointments today that I would have to miss if anyone came home or didn’t go in the first place.

For right now, I just want to get though this first appointment and move on to the next.


  1. Kids might have been unconsciously picking up on your nerves. Because we don’t hide them quite as well as we think. But I’m sure everything will be all right.

    1. Thanks Becky. I’m stressed and the kids know that but they also know that grownups get stressed. I focus on distractions and normalizing their lives as much as I possibly can. You’re 100% right though and that’s part of why I’m so exhausted. Trying to shield them from as much as possible, including my own grief is a lot.
