***The children are happily playing while Kevin and I are installing curtain rods. Why, when we leave the room, does it take them exactly 20 1/2 seconds to find us and commence the hubbub once again just feet away from us?
***I call into the living room from the kitchen while the kids are loudly disagreeing. No response. I notch it up to teacher voice. No response. I holler. Delayed response.
Later, I whisper, “Does anyone want to help make lemon bars?” Three smiling faces rapidly appear into the kitchen. How is this possible?
***Why do two year olds think they need to change their clothes eleventeen times a day?
***The baby is sitting up perfectly well with no toppling or wobbling for long lengths of time. Why, when I go answer the phone or to the restroom, does he suddenly lose his balance and commence wailing?
***Why can I not seem to leave well enough alone?
***Why is the getting out so much easier than the putting away?
***Why is Dada the one treated to the beauty spa on the first day I sleep in for weeks?
***I love to go to church and worship God. I love to go to Pilates and yoga and strengthen my core and do some thoughtful concentration. I always leave feeling so much more rested and centered. Why is it I almost always arrive at these two places, where I will gain some major mental good, breathless, flustered and late?
I don’t even to actually know why. I just want it to STOP.

Haha! It's a conspiracy for sure!
Aw, Jessica! I sympathize with you. 🙂 Some days (weeks, months) are just hard!
I think why is because God is exalted and our relationship with Christ is strengthened in our weaknesses…even the tiniest in our eyes are magnificent opportunities in His.
Yea, the one about kids not hearing you when you yell, but can hear a whisper if it's something they like…My hubby calls that selective hearing loss. HA
