And my sanity.
I would like to blame their behavior on the time change. But I’m not sure I really can. Anyone who has to move their clocks for Daylight Savings is going try this excuse for the next two weeks.
I could blame it on the girls. They woke up this morning fighting. My solution, “Evelyn your sister is going to school for like 6 hours. You don’t have to see her again until school gets out. Will that make you happy?”
I would like to blame it on the little one teething. Apparently, the only soothing solution is for me to rub his gums. I think he is the cutest kid ever but I don’t want to spend every minute of him being awake rubbing his gums.
I could blame it on Will whose new life goal is to see how many times he can say “I can’t.” in one day.
I could blame it on me. I can’t keep kids quiet in the car.
But I won’t. I will enjoy the quiet. I will enjoy the happiness on their faces when I pay them their winnings. I will kiss them goodnight because I love them and dismiss some of their insanity because their little bodies are as tired as my body. And I will wake up tomorrow with the attitude that “Today will be a better day.”
So how do you win the quiet game by the way?
You fall asleep on the way home. Works every time.
