Alarm at 5:30--beep, beep, Beep, BEEP
Me--Yes, you will show your work on your math!
3rd Grader--Then I won't do it.
Me--Yes, you will take a morning nap!
Baby--eyes me mischievously
Me--Play-dough get out of my carpet!
Play-dough in carpet--No thanks.
Me--You will say "Please" if you would like a drink.
Crazy Five Year Old--Sobbing inconsolably (for 25 minutes)
Me--Accomplish everything on schedule by noon
Schedule--HA HA HA
I'm still ahead, rather weary, but exultant. Bring on the afternoon!
(Just kidding Afternoon, truly I'm finished for the day, might I have a quiet corner, a book, and some hot tea, please?)
