15 buttons for a doll sleeping bag? Thats enough to make the sanest person freak out. You must have an awesome strength inside you to be able to function as a mother. Congratulations. You have my respect; I know I could never do it.
Wishing you smooth happy days,
> Sorry you are bumming today... I have been too, and I try try try to be a good mother, but when my daughter says she needs me to sew on 15 buttons for a sleeping bag she just sewed for her baby-doll, it takes just about everything I can do to not say "What!!! You want me to sew on 15 buttons on that little schmatte (yiddish for rag)!! Are you out of your mind??" But I don't scream at her, I stay in control, and guiltily suggest maybe we can bring it down to 7 buttons...

> Why are we all feeling low today? Is it the weather? It was 80 degrees here again today and muggy, and I could not get off the couch, I felt physically and emotionally awful, depressed, lonely... Or as you say Phil: apathy, confusion, numbness, self-hatred. Yeah, I'd say that just about describes it to a T...
