This time its Laura.  Everything is setting her off right now. 

The latest is a mega-melt because I had the nerve to seal an envelope for her birthday invitations.  (FYI - the right thing to do is to tuck the flap thing in and not stick it!) Earlier it was because she wanted to bring an empty peanut butter jar to pick strawberries instead of the baskets they provide.  Horrors!   Tears flow when I say "no" or don't have an instant play date for her.  Never mind if I attempt to help her with homework.  She melts as much as a toddler right now except there is no stroller I can strap her in at age almost nine.

Sigh.  And we are no where near the teenage years.  I need wine and Calvin and Hobbes to see me through.
