Whenever you have a house guest in a house with small kids, and that guest spends a lot of time playing with the kids, the days after the guest’s departure are usually fraught with discipline issues. The kids have been bouncing off the walls today, and there was a little more than the Daddy-recommended daily allowance of back-talking and obstinacy. In addition, I didn’t get back from Boston until 11:30am, so poor Mommy had to deal with the little darlings all morning by herself.
We’re trying to get the proceedings here at the Castle back on an even keel, and the day has been very, very busy. Therefore, I am invoking proprietor’s privilege, and cancelling the MSTS for today. Have no fear—this once, it will be a Tuesday Search Term Safari, and I’ll have it up for your perusal in the morning.
Now I’m going to pour myself some Parenting Juice, and then I’ll try to get a thousand or so words onto paper before bedtime. Hope your day was a little less…eventful than mine.
