Oh! The! Drama!

Yesterday was miserable here.
The morning was cool, humid, cloudy and dreary.
Li'l Empress and Little Gal were in MOOOO -OOOOODS to match.
I pulled the oldest mommy trick out of my bag o' tricks
and set them up for (at least) a few minutes of drama free fun.

Who doesn't love an old-fashioned blanket fort?!

Don't let those sweet smiles fool you.
The drama runneth over yesterday.
All. morning. long.
This distraction only bought me about 1/2 hour
of peaceful relations between warring nations.

Little Guy was totally oblivious to the drama.
All he cares about is the fire truck that rumbles
and blares its siren.
Oh, and the garbage truck.
That one makes really cool crunching noises.
They fascinate him.

It's a good thing nap time comes at the same time every day.
I'm happy to say that both girls woke with new moods.
Dramatically different moods.
Heh. It might have been the "come to Jesus" meeting
and prayer revival I hosted after lunch.

Here's to a drama free day. Enjoy yours!

So glad to know I am not the only one needing a come-to-Jesus moment some days! Oh the Drama...I can relate! :) Hang in there!

Ah yes - you can always tell when one of the kids had maybe a 'school event' the night before - the lack of rest causes much grief, wailing, and gnashing of teeth in our home!!

Here's to no drama - after coffee....

hugs - aus and co.
