Mom went into meltdown today. Overloaded, over stimulated, headache, you name it. I went to a birthday party for one of Tater's classmates. There were at least 25 children at this party. About 20 too many for this mom. I don't feel responsible for any child but my own... but I have a hard time as I watched a red headed kid put his hand in Tater's face or another kid push Tot out of the bounce house. All in fun but not funny in my eyes. And the worse part. The mother's of those two were no where in sight.

That wasn't the only thing that happened, and nothing was major. But too much for me. I came home, told my husband I needed space and went outside. I touched trees, pulled weeds and watched birds fly around. After about 15 minutes I was almost human again.

My kids loved it. My hubby was smart and went to work while we went to the party. Sigh...

I might be up to posting tomorrow... then again I may go into hiding again. We'll see if I get any sleep tonight. I saw that the wax myrtles are now in bloom. Ugh.

And I thought I was tough for being able to handle six of the little bast... um, angels.
