Also, Kavya is in the midst of toilet-training, started last Monday. It's possible that being pee'd on three times a day may be coloring my outlook. She does seem to be getting it, so hopefully within a week or so, things will improve.
I should note re: this morning's rant that the kids are generally being super-cute, cuddly, funny, and otherwise adorable these days. Which is all that is saving them. But it's a lot, and a definite consolation. It's what gives me hope that this will all eventually be worthwhile.
