And just like that- after our less then stellar day on Wednesday, things got better. They always do. We had great day Thursday, Friday, Saturday and today.
Thankfully, with kids like mine, great days don’t equal boring days. I mean- how boring can you days actually be when when you have to tell one of your kids (repeatedly) not to smell their sibling’s back end? Honestly, who needs to be told that once let alone multiple times?!
The stuff I have to tell my kids sometimes simply amazes me:
> No, you may not stand on the bed and try to see who can kick the other one off first.
> Nope, sorry, you’re not allowed to stand up in the bath and try to jump up and slam dunk the basketball.
> No, you can’t have chocolate chips, cinnamon rolls and a doughnut for breakfast!!!
> No, going up to your sibling and slapping them as hard as you can on the back isn’t an appropriate response to them telling you no.
> No, you can’t eat the snow off the bottom of your boot. Yes, even if it does taste good.
And on and on it goes. One day, I sincerely hope my children gain some common sense because right now, bless their hearts, they don’t have a lick of it.
