By the time the day is
Was I too hard?
I'm never entirely sure; I don't even know if there is a Just Right in this mommying gig, especially when you're balancing the needs and wants of three different individuals across a wide age range.
I hope that my kids will come to know - when they are older and likely parents themselves - that their mom did her best every day, and that some days tired and frazzled was the best she had to give.
And I hope they will look back on their summers and remember having lots of fun together with their siblings and their mom.
Because peeps? I am churning out the fun as fast as I can while I count down the days until school starts.
