If you’re a parent of young children, you already know this is true. You also know that while the years are short, the days have a way of feeling very, VERY LONG.
You’ve been up since 5AM. You’ve served breakfast, and second-breakfast, and cleaned both off the wall next to the highchair. You’ve sung twenty-three verses of “Old MacDonald” (what sound DOES a llama make?), built a fairy house from recycled egg cartons, played peek-a-boo until the novelty wore off and read that book — yeah, THAT one, with the different voices — three times, cover-to-cover.
And it’s only 8AM.
