not to mention while child A is in an activities that could leave you in the lobby wasting time for an an hour with two other bored kids.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

This is a good cake party! My strongest advice, as a nutrition nerd, is to start taking a b-stress complex vitamin, D3, and magnesium citrate and to eat more meat. Even crappy meat has more amino acids than a veg diet. When I was a vegetarian I couldn't get near as much done as now, on a high fat, high protein traditional foods diet.

Even the conservative parenting experts like John Rosemond agree that high - attendance extracurriculars are over-rated. Kids need time to goof around and be kids!

Today was a good day. On the Saturdays I have the girls I get off work at 1:00 instead of 4:00. And I left. promptly. Even though it could quite possibly be one of our busiest days EVER. no kidding. Ava was at a birthday party, when I got home I threw a roast in the crock pot and headed out to pick up the girl. Swung back home and picked up the other two and we went to see Ramona and Beezus (I bawled my eyes out. Some of the stress hit a little too close to home). After they snarfed down supper they played outside. Together. with the neighbor girl and her family and new puppy. Until way ofter dark. They came in cold and dirty. True hallmarks of good playtime this time of year. Now the two little ones are snuggled up in bed together and the older one is reading to the younger one. I was glad we could spend the day playing as a family and weren't distracted by meets and competition that separate the family.
