Now I know I come across as the model of ideal mothering and being a wife. Having another child did not trip me up a bit. I do have to admit that from time to time I do reach my boiling point...maybe once every five years. It usually happens when I'm trying to cook dinner and everyone needs me. They then try to all fit into the one space I am trying to occupy and cook all at the same time. I calmly solve this problem by removing them to another room, putting on a cartoon and having them wait till I am in the state of mind to fully deal with each of their issues.
