O.K., now, how about some alternate words?

My common answer to the kids when they ask "where are you going?" is, "Crazy, wanna come?"

I know how you feel Hope today is a brighter more sane day for you!

I know those crazy days all too well my dear. I love what Jess said, I too, have said that to my kids. They just look at me and roll their eyes like "ya, mom-we know". Better to have a fun mama that knows how to roll with the flow of craziness than one who resorts to drinking (drop that coffee ma'am!).
Love,
