Screaming. Crying. Laughing followed by screaming and more crying. Now that Red is home, this is what my days are filled with. He is a tease. I admit that he gets it from me. I'm a horrible tease and now I regret it with every ounce of my being. I don't remember teasing till the tears came, but I probably did. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depends on your perspective) Baby Girl has decided to defend herself - hitting, kicking and pinching being the weapons of choice. To top it off - tattling is at an all time high.
And we've been doing activities... got out all the wooden blocks today and we built a city - complete with zoo. We did some workbook and coloring pages this morning. We played with the Weebles, Thomas the Train set, and other various toys. But as soon as the organized play stops... the chaos starts.
So, in honor of my sanity, I've put a countdown in the sidebar. At this very moment we have 38 days, 12 hours and 11 minutes and 16 seconds till they go back to school. I think I'll just sit here and stare at it - watching the seconds tick away while they run wild.
