I call a time out. I call a do over.


Yesterday I messed up.

I lost my patience with Number 1 and 2.

My reasons for being upset were justified.

But I’m not exactly happy with the way I went about handling the whole situation.

I want a rewind button.

Or even better…

a delete key.

I need a Microsoft Word app for my life.

I would like to open up the document titled “yesterday”, select all, and press delete.

Actually, I don’t want to select all.

I would save this one little moment…

Yesterday when all the kids were eating lunch, Number 5 just looked at me out of the blue and said, “Mom, I’m thinking something.”

And I said, “Oh?  What are you thinking?”

To which she replied, “I’m thinking I love you.”

Yes, that part, I would save.

Save as.

Save as Awesome line from Number 5.

And then save again as Best line ever from Number 5.

Just in case I deleted the other one.

And then I’d save it on a disc.

And a flash drive.

And take a picture of  it.

And write it in her baby book….once I find it.

But the rest of the day?

Yeah, I want to delete that shit.

I want to open a totally new document, and start from scratch.



I want to keep the Number 1 spot! Please help me!

    Have the do-over conversation with them! Maybe not a perrfect fix….and maybe they won’t show it…but they will respect you for the effort.
