But instead, at this very moment, I am in the middle of a straw that broke my back war with G about bedtime. I have had it! I've reached critical mass.... I am about to go super-sonic... and fly way off the handle! Hubby is, per usual, on the road. Bed-time has been getting later and later and the antics have been going on longer and longer and.... I-CANNOT-TAKE-IT-ANY-LONGER!!
So I am taking a deep breath and counting to ten - writing this blurb and asking for God to grant me the serentiy... with my very own "bedtime" serenity prayer.
God, Grant me the serenity to accept that it's me,
alone, against the kids at bedtime;
the courage to stand my ground, be firm and not hit;
and the wisdom to win this battle.
