I don't have a lot of time to write, but I'll give you this for now.
Conversation with my mother:
Me: "Mom, do you think mothers with four teenagers should take valium?"
Mom: "No. Then you'd miss everything. I do, however, think a barf bag would be helpful.. since you're always on a roller coaster"
Here's a conversation with my friend from last week:
I'm directing traffic to our kids (her three, my four) "Hey, why don't you guys play that loud and rowdy game now, and get it over with before we watch the movie"
Friend: "Wow! Your mom is really organized. Hey, you should write a blog on organizing."
Me: "I would, but I have nothing to say!"
So, with that, I think I'll go disrupt the peace somewhere else now.
