GWS :: thirty-nine

sept 12 035

Whenever the kids are working at something that requires my presence to answer an occasional question or simply to provide moral support, I have to have something to keep MY hands busy so I stay out of their work except when they need or want me.  Sometimes this can be accomplished while I am doing kitchen work, if the project lends itself to the kitchen floor or table.  But I must be doing something that tolerates frequent interruptions or I will end up getting more frustrated instead of less.
