You know those quotes and words that everyone comes up with at the beginning of a new year? I know I am a little late to the game, but I have just come up with the perfect theme or slogan that fits our family to a T.
Everything Ends in Tears
What’s that you say? The Theme is supposed to be a peaceful life affirming quote to look too throughout the year for guidance? Well mine is just telling the truth.
With four daughters I have never come up with a more truthful statement then our new theme. The drama and anguish that can explode out of my four adorable girls is pretty epic.
No matter what we are doing, it always ends in tears. You name it, even if it was Disneyland, lunch with Taylor Swift, Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. I guarantee a sob fest about something or other would end up happening. You think this would depress me. It does not. if anything it prepares me for what is to come day in and day out.
Whenever I run into another mother that has all daughters like me, but they are older I always beg her to tell me about how it gets better. Do They ever stop fighting? Do the tears ever stop? I wine. I know all girls are different but the woman usually looks me in the eyes, her expression filled with empathy, then responds with a “yes it does. It gets worse before it gets better, but they are all best friends now.” I maybe then go in for an awkward hug and try not to shed a few tears.
No, It is not always this way but it is enough of the time to justify our theme. Now all I need is a Pillow Cross stitched with our saying for our couch and I will be set!
What is your realistic theme for the year?
