the roller coaster is one thing - emotional blah blah, dizzying, familiar
the seesaw - attempted balance - attempted being the word of note. otherwise the symbolic metahpor would be a scale
the hardest thing right now is dealing w my kids, i try to have more patient together time right now, and end up being zero tolerance impatient mom as their demands compete with my filledtothebrim thoughts, not fair at all i realize.
A new level of balance on top of all that i've only vaguely mastered as a single parent
