i had a dream....
...that someday i would have a cute little family of my own and i would love them and they love me.
we would ride bikes and play in the sunshine together.
i would be a better person because of them.
somedays i truly live that dream [that would be today].
while other days [let's say.... thursday of last week] i'm so absolutely fed up with being my kids' everything, that all i can do at five o'clock in the afternoon is buckle them both into the car and drive as far as my gas tank would allowed into the barren desert, all the while praying they remain quiet so i can have a few moments of peace.
thank heavens for more good days than bad.
