Zen morning moment before The Birthday begins.
(So much for my moment; Jack just came downstairs and I yelled at him to go back to bed.)
Anyway, back to Zen.
Caroline came home from school yesterday and said, "Mommy, if I'm crabby, it's not you. I had a bad day."
A thousand potential responses crossed my mind before I sighed and said, "Okay, why was it a bad day?"
"Well, no one really made a big deal out of the fact it's a day before my birthday."
The day BEFORE your birthday? Are you KIDDING me?? Do you even remember what you read when I made you look up the word "diva" this weekend???
Ah, wish me luck.
