I love my children desperately and fully. I’d take a bullet for them. I’ve carefully scraped the mustard and onion off of burgers with the precision of a brain surgeon.

I’ve rushed to catch vomit with my BARE HANDS. I even gave up a fully functional bladder -- just so they could exist on this earth. These things I have done willingly, if not joyfully (minus the vomit thing because WHO EVEN).

My kiddos are my rare, precious gems. And they drive me crazy.

What do a four-year-old and a twelve-year-old have to fight about all day long? Well, as it would turn out, everything.

Breathing too much, not sharing Doritos or Skittles or apple slices or popcorn, talking too loud, talking too quiet, being a human being, choosing the wrong Netflix movie, existing on this earth, wearing socks, not wearing socks, looking at each other.

Bless this home and all who live here.

It is at this point every year that I begin to wonder how I will survive the summer. I begin to contemplate the idea of jacking them up on Pixy Sticks and Mountain Dew and then letting them loose on a trampoline all afternoon until they crash and collapse in an exhausted heap.

I’ve seen the Pixy Sticks/Mountain Dew combo on Toddlers and Tiaras, so surely it is a safe and proven method.

I daydream about giving them the run of the house, quietly slipping off to Starbucks to sit amongst hipsters tapping away on their laptops, breathing in the coffee-scented silence.

Except the part where my phone would ring eleventy times because of course they’d know I was gone because for the love, they even follow me to the bathroom.

So, here’s the plan. Make desserts. Hide desserts. Wait until the end of a long summer day with bored kiddos. Put said kiddos to bed. Eat all the desserts alone.
