For every ounce of self-control and obedience displayed yesterday, the littles displayed at least equal (if not increased) amounts of the opposite behaviors today. Even Hazel had it out for me. Whining, shouting and flagrant disregard for parental requests, as well as a little wall scaling, were the hallmarks of this Monday.
And so dear readers, this is my tale and now I'm going to bed.
This mischievous look waits for me to turn my back so that the body attached to this face can climb on my chair and mess up my computer, or sneak outside and try to get on the trampoline or empty my pantry rice container onto the floor. . .well, you get the idea. It's still cute though.
See those looks? Truly terrifying - at least Niko's "I'm thinking of a million ways to torture you" smile. I keep trying to explain that Iron Man and War Machine are good guys. Not sinking in folks.
