Was this really my life at one point? It was in January 1994. This is a picture of my first day alone with Danny (15 months) and Ian (L) and Tim (R) at six weeks old. Dan had just dumped a bowl of yogurt on his head and I responded by screaming at him to “ACT YOUR AGE.” That set Ian and Tim off. Yes, yes they are all screaming. This picture was taken from the floor, where I was sitting. I was crying. I was calling Mike (from a rotary phone attached to the wall no less) to tell him I had changed my mind about having kids – it was just too hard. And then I hung up. Nearly 20 years ago. Send this to anyone you know struggling with wee people at home – you do get your life back – sort of.
