So, when I started this whole thing.. The show John and Kate Plus 8 was all the rage. The parents who’d given birth to twins and then added sextuplets. Since then, they have exploded in popularity and then they imploded.. Divorce, scandal, and an attempted rebranding.
In the intro to that show Kate says, “Today just might be the day I lose my mind.”
That rang true for me. I was deep in the trenches of parenting. And it was hard.
And, I guess not much changes. I have traded changing diapers for tracking phones. We don’t sing together, now a days I just try to show them some examples of more appropriate music. They dress themselves, but I still have to remind them to bathe every now and then.
There are still parenting challenges, but they are different.
And today might just be the day I lose my mind…
