Clover Clamor

29 Mar

The little one is obsessed with everything associated with St Patrick’s Day.  She may look like a little Irish step dancer but there’s not an Irish bone in her.  She is constantly on the lookout for rainbows, pots of gold, clovers and specifically four-leaf clovers…claiming at least weekly to have found one.

Well ladies and gentleman, today my little peanut actually found a four-leaf clover!  I don’t even think I’ve ever seen a real one in my life!!  According to Wikipedia for every 10,000 3-leaf clovers there is 1 4-leaf clover.

"I wish for a Lego Death Star and toy cookies."

Like a typical big brother, the little big man quickly snatched it from her and started feverishly making wishes on it. That freakin Lego Death Star.  It’s a constant begged for item though I’ve told little man that there is no way we, or Santa, or any relatives will EVER be gifting  a hunk of Lego to him for $399.99.  I guess it can’t hurt to wish!

Here’s hoping the 4-leaf clover brings my little one some good luck though.  She’s been so sick for several weeks with chronic sinusitis, capped off by a visit to the emergency room on Monday night after she had a bad allergic reaction to her latest antibiotic.

Have you ever found a 4-leaf clover?

Patience

27 Jul

It’s been a rough couple of days with the kids. 

I looked up the definition of patience and was intrigued with the one Wikipedia provides:

Patience is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance/anger in a negative way; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast.

Endurance under difficult circumstances sums up the way I feel.  Except without the endurance. 

It’s just morning here.  The kids have been up for just over an hour.  And I can’t take it already.  The whining, the fighting, the smart mouths. 

Oh and this is the little one at the table.  She has no clothes on and is refusing to eat the oatmeal that she requested for breakfast.

I’m not sure how to not let it get to me.  I seem to always lose that inner struggle. 

How does one acquire patience?
