I started this morning trying to boost my caffeine levels (which had plummetted to a shocking low) but being interrupted by squeals of distress....it was a child-with-an-itchy-rash emergency. After ministering to said child, The Itch was still causing distress, so we sat down and read " The Little Polar Bear" for distraction. Poor little Lars the polar bear - thank goodness it all worked out in the end for him.
Now it's off to work - an extra shift. First must drop 1 child at preschool, then 1 at daycare, then go to work with a full tank of empathy and concern. Deep breaths.... I know I can do it.
