He's feeling my pain

Last night as Peyton stood screaming hysterically at Keaton and Landon who were WWF wrestling at the top of their lungs on the floor (she thought they were hurting one another)...

...while Reagan was running around in a panic trying desperately to find all of the items she needed for volleyball practice for which we were already running late...

...while Dad was otherwise engaged outside and unable to come in and help us...

...while I was pathetically glued to my laptop, desperate to snag that must-have Christmas item on one of our children's list that just dropped to 80% off ...

(deep breath)

Hayden, who had been uncharacteristically quiet (I mean, seriously, the boy is never quiet) replied despondently with his eyes closed and his head in his hands, "This is all so stressful."
