...After all, it’s only a small mess. It’s only paint. My life isn’t terrible. It isn’t hard. I am the mother of two young boys who like to challenge the world around them. This quality is a good one and should be managed, no, groomed, for use in life. So, why is it so difficult to remember these facts during typical situations that push us to our limits? Some days I am mortified by my parental behavior...but I know that I am not alone.
