Let's Go

Posted by on May 6, 2010 | 0 comments

I’m having a hard day.  Lennon is snuffly and cranky.  Kieran is needy.  Jack is in limbo at school, since his BI (Behavioral Interventionist, or Special Friend as Jack calls him) left last week to continue graduate school, and his behavior has been erratic.  And by erratic, I mean whoa nelly, we’re in for a bumpy ride.

So today is testing my patience.  I have a headache.  I gave the children pancakes for lunch. I am thisclose to nap time.  All I have to do is put on diapers, make some paper airplanes, tuck in the children (who will get up the minute I close the door anyway), and go lie down with the baby.  I have finally convinced Jack that even if he is not tired, he “needs his quiet time.”  And mama does, too. 

There is screaming.  Some joyful, mostly angry.  It is brain-piercing.

Then, in the middle of it all, Jack sings out.  “Hey, ho – let’s go!!”

How am I supposed to stay frustrated when the kid busts forth with The Ramones?

Ruined a perfectly bad day.
