Summer Vacation...Day 2

Is summer over yet? Because I'm already tired of it! The twins were done with school last Thursday and Aaron at noon on Wednesday.

Since Wednesday it's been nice. Sleeping in. I've been lunching and breakfasting. But being on mother-duty all day is exhausting!

At this point, BuddhaMom disappears and ManiacMom emerges. "Is there a bone poking out? Is blood spurting from the wound? No? Then stop your crying and let me put a bandaid on it."

Sometimes I really really like ManiacMom...
