Depending on how up you are on 80's pop songs, you'll recognize that title from a Cher album (Heart of Stone, circa 1989). Regardless of whether it's familiar or not, we all have those days that we simply need to start over. Today was definitely a "mom's in need of mercy" morning. The boys woke up an hour early and two of the three were extremely whiny for two hours--the whiny with constant crying, "hold me, hold me," (if they can talk) and just grabbing your legs with incessant crying if they can't. You know, those really fun mornings that make you so glad to be a stay-at-home mom, with your kids. All. day. long.
So, inspired by this post, I decided to restart the day. Sometimes, all cranky kids (or kids of any sort, for that matter) need is some extra-long moments of undivided attention and cuddles from Mom. So went back upstairs, crawled under the covers, read a story, and the day started over again--much better on take two. I encourage you to read Sara's post, "Reboot."
