I'm only as happy as my unhappiest child...

I heard a mother say this today, and while I generally don't like to focus on the negative, isn't this SO true!!!

It's really hard to be at peace when any one of your children is not. Thing about having four children is that it's often hard to find a time when all the kids are happy, hahaha! There are moments though, and boy do those moments shine!!!

My children's worries are my worries, even though I have the ability to see the big picture and know things will work themselves out or blow over or come good, or whatever is most likely to reduce the worry in the long term.

I love that quote and I agree .
It is hard to be happy when you kids are unhappy ...
unless they are a teenager and so totally deserve the unhappiness we bring them because we say NO !

Teenagers and the failing parent...
