Tag- You’re it!

Today I had planned to write about another topic, but I think there’s something all mommies’ can relate with and appreciate.  Today, I really took advantage of tag team! 

From 5:15am until about 7:30am, the whining never stopped from my 3 year old.  So much so, that I felt like I was being water boarded and was starting to suffocate.  Running upstairs to shut the door didn’t work, as the whining seemed to follow me.  I knew I had to deal with it, but I needed a minute to gather myself.  Even though my husband was brushing his teeth, I ran into the bathroom with the kids and said “you’re it… just for a minute”.  I was able to take a breath, gather myself, and get back the mommy patience I had left.  Then, I helped my youngest get through his whinny spell giving him a hug and surrendering.  I love having the opportunity to tag team, whether it’s your husband at 7:30am, or your neighbor at 4pm.  It’s always nice to be able to take that breath so you can regroup and be able to surrender to your kiddos when needed.
