Blitzkrieg (German, "lightning war"); is an anglicized word describing all-mechanized force concentration of tanks, infantry, artillery and air power, concentrating overwhelming force and rapid speed to break through enemy lines, and once the latter is broken, proceeding without regard to its flank. Through constant motion, the blitzkrieg attempts to keep its enemy off-balance, making it difficult to respond effectively at any given point before the front has already moved on

Tanks = Raef and Zach
Infantry = Eli
Artillery = Harry
Air Power = Julia

What did the British do to defeat the Germans? Let me see. Well, there were a couple of things. Great Britain is an island, so they had geography on their side. Then they just hunkered down a bit when London would get bombed and of course, after a couple of years there was Pearl Harbor and the Germans then declared war on the Americans. So, the British had strong allies.

It just comes at me all at once..."Mommy, look at me. Mom, mom, mommy, MOM!!!!" Then the two year-old chimes in with a convenient temper tantrum because he doesn't want to put any clothes on, followed by an exuberant 8 year-old throwing objects throughout the house. And of course two adorable 9 month-olds need food right now. All while I am trying to find the stupid viola book so that the exuberant one can practice his stuff.

Brain. On. Overload.

Malfunction, malfunction, malfunction.

It is a blitzkrieg, I tell you, and my defenses are cracking rapidly. They really don't need to worry about the flank. My only defense is slamming stuff on the ground and screaming really loud. Surprisingly enough, it is a poor strategy with nasty ramifications.

I need an ally.

No...I need an island.

HIre a young woman from the ward for a few hours a week to help you. I did that! It is wonderful. The younger the better because they will still actually play with the children. Hugs, K
