lol - i first thought the "being a thousand miles from my kids" was one of the likes. then i read more closely - i feel guilty - i smiled and agreed on the first read - - then smacked myself and reminded myself "i love my kids....i love my kids......i love my kids....it's their behavior i sometimes can't tolerate......................"
