“Mommy! Colm isn’t picking up his toys, he’s picking up the shoes and I’m picking up the shoes! ”
“Elizabeth just pick up and appreciate that he’s helping at all.”
“Colm! Stop picking up what I’m picking up! Colm! Stop asking me questions! Argh!!! Colm, just pick up your toys!”
“That’s it Elizabeth. Five minutes in the corner. Now.”
A friend just asked me if I was just tired or if the kids were acting up. I responded that yes, the kids are acting like typical brother and sister and yes I am tired.
But being tired is a permanent side effect of parenthood.
