Mama's Summer Survival Prayer

Dear Lord,

Please help me embrace the fun that is summer and not worry that my house looks like it was ransacked by wolves and that my brain is not responding from all the noise these children create. 

Please give me the mental strength to persevere through this:

In order to be blessed with this:

Please give me the power to officiate another sibling grudge match, because when it's over, I might be awarded with a sweet dance:

Please give me the patience not to spontaneously combust upon the realization that the price to pay for five quiet minutes to cook dinner was the brand new role of tape I just bought:

Please help me to carve out special time for Big Sister, so I can shower her with the one-on-one attention she so desperately craves:

Please help me to make it through another day of whining, constant eating, complaining and potty training without sticking pins in my eyes.

Please keep reminding me that someday they will leave me, and I will miss all of this chaos.

And Father, last but not least, please do not let me finish the last bottle of wine before restocking the fridge.

Amen and amen.
