When you just can't take another "but mom..."

... at bedtime.

I found this great post via Mary at Owlhaven. Don't we moms (and dads) all feel like this sometimes. I know I do. Work all day, come home to homework and activities and bathes and whatever. Get the kids to bed to squeeze in some chores (and maybe relax). Wake up and do it all over again.

Why is it so hard to take a few moments for an extra cuddle? To hear another story about recess? To answer, yet again, how many more days until we see grandma? Why is it that so often those questions make me cringe a bit, feeling that desperation to close the door?

They are growing up so fast. And yet, some days it is hard.
