Angry Mom

I guess we all need to take a step back and view ourselves through the eyes of a child every once in a while.  I had a wake-up call today.  It came in the form of a drawing created by a 4 year old.  I realize that I have become the general of the family; barking orders at my little soldiers in order to get everyone every where they each need to be in the most efficient way possible.  This is great for the army, but not so good for little boys who just want to play with their mommy. 

"Angry Mom"

So we ate chocolate covered pretzels, played tag, watched Wipe-out, and stayed up way to late tickling each other.  No toys were picked up, no homework was done, and no yelling was heard all night long.

Maybe they'll let me sleep in tomorrow for being so good tonight...
