If you are familiar with Star Wars quotes, you know what Yoda says about “trying.”
Well Yoda, I beg to differ. Sometimes, especially as a mom, all you CAN do is try.
Here are some things I tried to do recently, with varying degrees of success:
I tried to have a telephone conversation while all the kids were home on break.
I tried to fix my hair nicely on Sunday morning.
I tried to find my teenage daughter’s orthodontic retainer in the outside dumpster.
Here’s the score, out of 3 things tried:
- Almost succeeds: 1
- Mostly fails: 1
- Complete Fails: 1
