Off the Ledge
Everyone can breathe a giant sigh of relief and tell DHS that they don't need to investigate for now. This house is back to normal.
There is a very direct correlation between my attitude towards parenting and breaks from Mother's Day out. When they have a break for holidays, they spend way too much time with me and with each other. And then add an illness for each of them along with teething for one and you have a MESS!
And the kids seem to thrive on the structure of school. Which is just not something I am good at providing. I'm very much a "let's-just-wake-up-when-we-feel-like-it-and-do-whatever-we-feel-like-doing-at-the-moment" kind of person. Plans are fine if they happen to be made, but Aaron and I were spontaneous and unstructured before kids. And now we are even more so because life is crazier.
Moral of this story is that I should give you all fair warning when the kids will be out of school for several weeks again (Christmas) so that I don't have the SWAT team busting through my windows to rescue me from my insanity. :)
