Why does it always feel like a competition with my children?  If I make it to work and neither child caused me to go to a corner and rock back and forth on my heels, I win!  Otherwise, I lose.  I don't think this is how it is supposed to go.

For the record.  Today, I lost.


  1. You're not alone.
    I'm lucky if I get one or two days a week where mine don't make me want to cry out of frustation.

  2. When I worked, that's how I always felt! You said it perfectly!

    But, sometimes, on days I thought I "won" - no sooner would my ass hit my chair would the phone ring to come pick someone up!!

    The blog is looking really good - way to go for doing it!


Having a child with a CHD is like being given an extra sense---the true ability to appreciate life. Each breath, each hug, each meal is a blessing when you've watched your child live off a ventilator, trapped in an ICU bed, being fed through a tube. Each minute is a miracle when you've watched your child almost die and come back to you.
