Sometimes you just need a second to yourself.
Things get busy.
You have to change a diaper.
Someone needs a snack.
1 or 2 kids is crying.
Someone needs me to "hold you".
The house constantly needs to be picked up.
Someone is panicked because their shoe came unvelcroed.
And all you want,
is just one second to relax,
and build the most awesome tower possible.
Someone keeps crashing it.
She thinks it's funny.
You were on the brink of discovering the absolute best structural design.
It's down again.
You suggest building separate towers.
On opposite ends of the playroom.
You try - "let's see how tall mommy can build it and then you can crash it".
I don't even want to play with blocks.
Let's just have a tea party or something.
Something less competitive.
But you just wait.
One day I'm gonna build the best one yet.
