For one stay-at-home mom, it had been the day from hell. In fact, she just couldn’t seem to keep her kids happy without them creating chaos. And so when her husband asked about her day, all she remembered were the bad things. Her daughter, however, saw the situation a little differently.
Being a parent can be hard. An average day, for example, can mean being woken up to the sound of a screaming child. And that was the case for this mother, who had started her morning by hearing her young daughter shouting out, “Mom, there’s a monster in my room.”
After attending to her daughter’s needs, then, she took her downstairs to play quietly with her little sister. But any “me time” that mom might have eked out for herself was short; the scene soon descended into chaos as a fight broke out over a building block. And as a result, their mother had to drop what she was doing and intervene.
