stress

Being around little kids is exhausting. I’m sensitive to noise and conflict. Their needs are so big, and their moods are so extreme. Today I got left alone with a crying three year old. We ended up playing trains on the floor in the living room then did a large dinosaur puzzle. Now Dad’s watching… Read More »
