It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a mother in possession of three children, must be in want of a nap.
I must confess to be reading my favorite book for the umpteenth time. Can you, by chance, guess what it might be?
Every time I do this, two things happen. 1.) I do a lot of thinking. 2.) I start dropping terms like, "I'm in no humor at present to give consequence to young ladies who are slighted by other men!" into normal conversation. Which, let me tell you, is rather difficult. I connect with this book. It is a book about people. I am a people-watcher. It is a book about family. My family is my life. It is a book about houses. I have to clean one of those. OK, the last one wasn't a great connection, but still. I love this book. It is a book about life lessons and settling scores.
Here are the life lessons my children learned this week. Sanity and Insanity are constantly in the throes of battle around here due to these learning experiences.
1.) Pip learned to roll over. Saying goodbye to the days of an immobile baby = Insanity -1
9.) Bee learned that her favorite game is 'The Princess and the pea'. Having to trip over piles of bedding, remaking all the beds every five minutes = Insanity - 2
