It's that time of year...time when the rivalries get a little intense, loved ones pick sides, and a lot of time is spent negotiating who wins what when. But who am I kidding? That's every season around here. As a mother of three, I'm constantly juggling the barrage of questions and demands thrown at me from the little people in my life. Always at the same time, and usually requiring vastly different parts of my mental energy or physical self.
It can be maddening, I tell ya. But thanks to my new play-off system, I am able to let each child's issue battle it out with a worthy competitor. And if the demand is deserving of my time, then it just might win the highly coveted spot as Champion of Mom's Attention.
