Coping

We all cope.

I grind my teeth to cope with stress.

Alex plays video games.

Here's how my children cope:






Geez . . . I don't even know what to say about that last photo . . .

How about you?  How do you cope?

more importantly... why are the girls in need of coping? i thought lamby paci was just for the bed? hope elo's ok.
to cope i....take a long shower/bath and bake. but if i don't cope as i should, my body will cope with sleepless nights or a tummy ache. not fun.

I don't think I do cope. But I'm beginning to think my nightly mouth retainer has become like a calming pacifier for me. I can't really think of many things more pathetic...

I cope by showering/bathing longer than normal or making something with chocolate in it.

First, I had no idea they made pacifiers that big! Haha...too funny:).

I cope by shoppping. Isn't that terrible? Not huge shopping sprees, but a small trip to Target or the Loft--definitely self-medicating and definitely in need of repair by my Savior! :)

I know, I know. We keep saying we are going to get rid of that paci for Eloise but it's my coping mechanism too!
She LOVES it! It usually stays in bed except on special occasions. Here, she had just woken up and was still tired so I threw her in the stroller so I could run down to the store for something.
