What is that, you ask? Why that, my dear friends, is Victory for Madame Queen day! Mr. Daddy is coming home! And he doesn't know it yet, but when he walks in the door -- TAG! You're it! And I'm running for the car to head out to....to....heck! who cares?! Somewhere. Anywhere I can be ALONE. Aloooone! Alllooonnneee! Bwahahahaha!
Frankly, I don't see how single parents do it. Kudos to you, Mom! And all you other single parents out there. Don't get me wrong. The kids have really been absolute angels this week. Very little arguing. Very few tantrums. But good grief, if I hear Mommy one more time I seriously think I might lose it. There's just been nobody to hand them off to. Nobody to pick up my slack when my strength, my resolve, were flagging.
Oh, and it wasn't the end of the world yesterday after all. The snow didn't stick and it didn't even last very long. It hasn't really snowed here in about 4 years, so when I snowed twice in one week, I was sure it was the first sign of the impending apocalypse!
