The Article I Didn’t Write

For those of us who are task-oriented, it can be frustrating to take care of kids because most days, we rarely get things done. As I sigh deeply on the way to the kitchen, my little four-year-old, says, “Mama, why did you take a big breath?” I tell him, “Mommy’s just frustrated I can’t get my work done right now.” He offers some good advice: “Mom—You can’t always get what you want. You get what you need. That’s what the Rolling Stones say.” (Can you tell that his dad doesn’t listen to “Elmo Sings the Blues” and “Raffi” in the car?)
