Doing What It Takes

My emotional life has been feeling very much like this lately:

house of cards

and it makes me want to spend all my time here:

big comfy bed

while wishing someone would swoop in and do all my work

and take amazing care of my children

but I know when a particular voice chirps “check it out, Mommy!”

and I need to pull myself together
