Well, despite the snow my children have woken up already mad each other. Accusations began to fly, blame for a broken helicopter and the like. This quickly morphed into screaming and then not be outdone, shoving 'consummated' the event.
I found myself acting as a human shield between 2 children lunging at one another. What in the world? Anyway, I separated them in order calm both down and to allow me to
After, I called both into the living room together after announcing there was going to be a 'shakedown' in the house, whatever shakedown means. I don't know, it was the first thing that came to my head. I'm not going into how I handled it because I don't want to be judged as a parent but let's just say I gave them a choice. If they chose the bad I had a list of events I would cancel plus many, many extra 'projects' to complete. Alternatively if they chose the good...you know the rest. Basically it was a choose heaven or hell kind of situation. :)
I started breaking out in hives AGAIN. I think it is because I haven't had coffee yet or because I didn't shave my legs, whatever it was I don't like waking up with lips that look like I had a collagen overdose. On the other though, at least it was free.
The kids are out playing in the snow and yes, I locked the door behind them. Now the question. Do I answer when they ring the doorbell?
