    The other day my 19-year-old coworker was complaining to me about how busy she is with her part-time job and classes at the community college. I mean, now that she works three days in a row she is just. so. tired.

    I was about to explain to her that none of the adults she works with care how busy she thinks she is, but then I realized “Aww, she has no idea that this is the easiest her life is ever going to be. Let her have this one.”

    Being an adult requires too much work. Can we all form a union and see if we can negotiate better hours?

  2. My life took a weird turn that resulted in a promotion at my day job, so I totally get it. Album-release-time is always a busy weird time but doing it around a 40-hour workweek is hellacious.

    My 20 month old can work the iPhone better then both her grandparents and she has her own library card too. All she wants is books, books books,. All I want is to nap, nap, nap but she always wins!

    Yeah, I have to say, when I had one baby, I look back and think WOW life was so easy (but it wasn’t to me at the time). Two kids, and no extended family for hours away, and life becomes a very different prospect. But I get it, time takes on new meaning when you have less of it to spare!

    Life with little kids is no joke. Our two-year-old still needs near-constant surveillance and entertainment, and it will wear you down. BUT the good news is that it gets better! The older boy is now five, and he can entertain himself (with minimal risk to life and limb) for almost an hour at a time. Two hours, if he has the iPad. And last week when I was in bed sick, he actually GOT HIMSELF A SNACK. I know! It was like a miracle. Hang in there….
