Love is having a long day, dealing with wallpaper that won’t behave and contractors who will but still take way too long to do finish, fielding several meltdowns and endless whining, and then remembering that tomorrow is the last day of school before break and teacher gifts must be readied.
Love is patting yourself on the back for having everything bought ahead, and packing up the gift bags, and then remembering that—thanks to various “help” and “testing” and “special sessions”—you should, by rights, be gifting quite a few of the support staff as well. Possibly with large sums of cash.
Love is having cursed your kitchen the previous night, and being tired and having work to do and laundry to put away and floors to clean, but whipping up half a dozen loaves of chocolate chip gingerbread, anyway, because when you can’t give cash, you give chocolate.
Love is being very grateful to have half a dozen extra folks to bake for because they care about your kid.
Happy Love Thursday, everyone.
