Is Monday. Overall it turned into a decent day. Nothing too crazy happened. No injured kids...despite Obie getting a hold of a Cutco knife waving it around during dinner. No bruises...despite the kids wrestling around the backyard and fighting over the slide. No wet beds...Grace used every excuse in the books to not go to bed..."I have to go pee pee." is the one she really thinks we will give in with...but we didn't, and there was no pee pee. Just an upset little girl. I was rather productive today too. 7 shirts ironed. Check. 2 pairs of pants ironed. Check. Dinner made. Check. Kids bathed (2 out of 3). Check. Dogs walked. Check. Feet up & rest time. Checking off right now. (pictures are from tonight after dinner in the backyard...just so you know)
Intent and outcome are so rarely coincident.
