Being a mom is messy business, no matter what age or phase your children are in.  Living with a toddler, especially one with hurricane force winds destroying everything in her path, well… that can bring a mom to her knees.  To her knees… with a roll of paper towels.  It’s just a phase, Mom.  These things, too, will pass.  Eventually.
