Am I Crazy?

Some days I fantasize about checking myself into a mental institution where I can shamelessly indulge in some heavy sedation, electroshock therapy and maybe try on a straitjacket for a few hours. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only mother who hasn't thought about this. That's why I can type this out comfortably without feeling like I'm actually crazy...

But some days, the things that make me crazy, are the things that make me happy. Go figure! For example, there's this little boy who loves to smear his food everywhere - including his hair. Initially I feel like pulling my hair out, but instead I grab the camera so I can capture his sweet innocence - and the chocolate pudding in his hair.

There are so many things that happen in just one day that would surely drive me over the edge had I not been able to stop, take a deep breath and just go with it. Man, life is just too short to sweat the small stuff. That's what they invented chocolate for...and Sex & the City reruns...and boxes of tissue...and vodka.
