I'm glad today is over.

When the day begins at 5 a.m., and both kids are contagious, and feel too badly to play, but too good to stay on the couch - when that kind of day begins at 5 a.m., it is a LONG TIME before nap. Seriously. That's an eight-hour morning, friends.

Both kids have strep throat. Again. Yesterday Asher was seriously ill - couldn't keep water down, willingly took a nap at 11:30 a.m., couldn't get his fever to break, that kind of ill - but today he was better. Better enough to be ornery, anyway. And Silas feels completely fine, until he DOESN'T, and then he just becomes obstinate.

THAT kind of day began at 5 a.m. this morning.

Alas - it happens. Sometimes kids get sick and irritable. Sometimes their mother cannot take one more minute of Dora, but has absolutely nothing else to do with her sick kids. Days like that happen sometimes.

I'm just glad this one is over.

Good night all.
