So last night Rob took the kids to see a Duke Football game with his family. Sounds like fun, right? Well, the game didn't end up starting until after 8:00 and it's a two hour drive home, so even though they didn't stay for the whole game they still got home after midnight. Not great for my kids who go to bed at 7:00. And, of course, they were up bright and early this morning (before me...eek!). All of this would be fine if it wasn't for the tired whiny behavior I had to hear all morning. Right around lunchtime Camille had a total breakdown because she didn't like the food I fixed. Through her tears she tells me in no uncertain terms that she hates her lunch and (get this!) "I want to be the ruler!"
That's right. She wants to be the ruler of our house so she can eat what she wants and do what she wants all the time.
Gotta love her honesty!
(They got their second wind after lunch and were fine and remarkably non-whiny this afternoon. They went to bed early. Hopefully we'll be sort of back to normal tomorrow.)
