So far today I'm having a tough one. Going out still takes a lot out of me and I went out last night to the kids school festival. I actually coped really well being out. Then I had a night full of nightmares. They seem to come when I've used up my emotional energy by being out.

This morning the kids are feral after being all sugared up last night (and before breakfast this morning - oops). I'm hiding in the office but it's not working - they keep finding me!

My 9 year old just stuck his head in the door and I almost lost it so he left again. Only to return a minute ago and quietly hand me a soft red ball (I think he may have won it last night). It's a stress ball. It made me laugh and he said "see, it's working already".

Now I'm crying. Cos I honestly don't know what I did to deserve a kid like that. :-)

What a wonderful child! He's definitely a keeper! I reckon I know what you did to deserve a child like that ;-)

Hope your day improves!

hopefully your day will get better ~ it's difficult when we need "time out" even just for 5 minutes.

Your 9yr old is gorgeous bringing you your stress ball and saying that! Of course you deserve having him as your son {{hugs}} Ali

{{HUGS}} What a great thing for your son to do - give him a big hug tonight if you can..

He is a keeper and I'll definitely give him a hug. Now that he's close to double figures we have an interesting relationship which swings between being good mates and being at loggerheads with each other. :-) I'm glad we at least get the "good mates" phases in between the other phases.
