I like to think that I have the power over my kids to enact a change in attitude by sheer will power.
Typically if they're especially sassy one day I'll win them over with enthusiasm, laughter and lots of love. 60% of the time it works every time (just a quick movie quote there, anyway name that movie?)
Today was not one of those days. Today will forever go down as the day of tattletailing. Not just tattletailing, but incessant, ridiculous tattletailing. That was just one of the many indiscretions committed by my babies today.
By 5pm I was convincing myself they NEEDED sleep enough that a 6:30pm bedtime was not just warranted but necessary.
Alas, 7pm it was and they were in bed.
Now, I wish I was laughing with them and snuggling them.
Such is the life of a mom.
