My friend McKenzie posted this video on Facebook this morning and it was like manna for my tired soul. I want to cry, it is so hilarious and true.
Maybe you’ve all seen it, but I’m sharing anyway. Enjoy.
This week is kicking my tail, you guys. I have a cold that keeps getting worse instead of better. I’m covered over in writing deadlines (that I’m slowing crawling out of, thank you, Lord). It was TWENTY-SEVEN degrees when I woke up this morning (Nashville, you are hurting my feelings). And today is the first of four Papa-less days in this house.
I know many of you do the single parent thing often (or all the time), and I maintain that you deserve your own comic book series. Superhumans, that’s what you are.
In keeping with the theme of the above video, you should know it took me about 12 minutes, 5 pauses, 8 animal crackers and 3 fig newtons to successfully watch the whole thing. I would make one child happy with snack bribes or answers to questions like “What is the superdog’s name?” (?? no clue), set something on the counter, and turn around to find Boy #2 standing where Boy #1 was. They are like miniature Houdinis with their appearing and disappearing.
Come to think of it, the cold meds are probably not helping my reaction time.
In completely unrelated news: We are in the middle of a short 5-day plan over at SheReadsTruth this week. It is a compilation of five of our favorite days from past plans and it is called – wait for it – Five Favorites. Next week we start a brand new plan on giving thanks in all circumstances.
Can you believe it’s almost Thanksgiving? Whoosh, there goes the year.
So, how’s your week going?
