There have been so many instances lately where I found myself at a loss to know what to do/say/how to react.
Brandon, clearly hearing what I tell him NOT to do, giving me one kind of look before deliberately disobeying.
Andrea toppling over into the boot of the Prado and mildly bruising her left eye on some part of our stroller.
Reuben’s amazing stamina at crying some nights.
All these and more make me want to cry at times. Getting angry takes up so much energy, and I have very little extra to dish out these days.
But of course, there are other things that make everything better. Like getting hugs and kisses out of the blue from both the kids. Or Reuben taking his cue to beam away when I smile at him.
Balance. I guess the reason why this is achieved by stirring up emotions on either extreme of the spectrum is to keep life interesting.
