What do you do when your children skip their naps? You say you’re not going to cry, then try two more hours to ignore, pamper, bribe, inspire—finally, turn them into magic beans. You distract yourself by baking brownies, except they’re dry, too healthy with egg whites and carrot puree lurking inside. You pick a fight with your husband who is also googling magic beans in the office. You pray, “Lord, where’s the grace?” as you walk down the hall hearing your toddler serenading his cars, the baby cooing, sit in the hallway and whisper through tears and giggles, “Thanks.”
