Oh, the STRESS of it all!!

Yup, it's official. Chapter 4 is giving me a bald spot! Grrrrrrrr.

I took a little break from Jenna and Duncan in the form of watching five children, all under the age of four for a few days. Let me tell you, the stress from that makes my chp.4 problem look like a walk in the park.

How is it that someone who is only three feet can move so fast? And what about the herd mentality? If one runs, they all want to run. And do you think it is in the same direction? Nooooooo, it's in all different directions. It forces you to mentally calculate who has the potential to get hurt the worst the first in seconds so you can speed after that one.

All moms who have more than three children, I salute you!

Hmmm... I wonder if the bald spot really is from chp. 4...

Isn't babysitting fun, Melissa? No wonder I can't seem to write anything decent...I have five at my house everyday!! And then when the two that aren't mine go home, my husband come home from work and it's like I've got TEN kids then!! :)

Makes you want to have more, doesn't it? :)

That's very funny guys! I don't know how you can write anything with kids running around under foot! I salute both of you! And chapters 4, 5 or 6 seems to be the sticking place for me too. Anyone for hair-pulling? I had a nephew staying with me last week who truly loved to pull on my hair--tangled it up, pulled it out... It's a wonder I have any left!
