Dear Ben and Jack,
I am sure you must sometimes notice that Mommy gets a bit nutty. This is a nice way of saying that Mommy sometimes gets a wee bit cranky. A little too focused on the details and forgetting to stand back and see the bigger picture. I believe that all households go through hills. Sometimes we are high up on the hill with everything running perfectly. We cannot imagine even the possibility of a rotten day. Other times we are in the valley and just getting through the day or week is enough of an effort.
Just want you both to be sure that even when Mommy is overwhelmed and yes CRANKY I still love love love you both. Also want you to know that at the end of each valley is a new hill to climb. The trick isn't to avoid the valley because they are what make the hills seem so high. We must instead become expert hill climbers for life is full of valleys but it is worth the climb my boys. Now let's climb shall we?
Love Your Crazy Cranky Momma
