1. What is one thing that worries you right now?

2. Does the weather by you think it is fall/winter/spring or summer?

3. How is your calendar for October? Slow, medium, busy?

Doesn't your husband help with transportation? Two kids, two parents, what's the problem?

Can't your dh drive since you have something else?  Is the testing place that far away that it's an issue?

So parenting stresses you out then, wife?

Doesn't parenting stress out every parent? lol. I was speaking of being busy, not stressed with my schedule. Could it get stressful, absolutely.

Yes, and? It is still a busy day of running around starting at 5:30am. Not stressful, just busy.

So you do all the parenting on the weekends then?

I'm sorry your husband doesn't help with the kids :(

Busy to me would be (on top of normal regular stuff) a 3-day out-of-state trip.  Or two day-long out-of-town contests to attend.  And, on top of regular work stuff, interviewing for two open positions and taking on part of the duties of a resigning employee, and implementing two new programs.

No, where did I say that? Please re-read to see that my dh also "parents" (which if you are considering running around to places also, then yes) with me.

Right? I drive about 40 miles a day just shuffling kids back and forth to school and other places.

Even if you have two kids that need to be at two different places at the same time?

It seems like a silly thing to be stressfully busy about.
