The time has come….

For the kids to fall asleep in their own bed. We’re in hour 2 of scream fest/ I have to pee every 5 minutes.

This is I believe where that thing called the “breaking point” is met. I have seen it, it’s real.

As we approach the next half hour, the screams are intermittent. Yet with enough level & volume that neither child can sleep.

We’ll see who breaks first. Kobra kai, sweep with the leg. No mercy…for that squishy little baby face with tears running all over. I believe this war of the wills determines the upper hand for the teen years.

I hear little sad voices, “mommy,please come in here”

You can do it. Stay strong. Self pep talk is working.
