Count them, seven.
I will have seven children from nine until six today. Am I nuts or what?
And the irony of the situation is that they have forecasted rain on and off all day. It is misting right now, as we speak. (Were we speaking?) Theymay be stuck inside for large portions of the day. WAAAAAAAAHHHHH!
Anywho, time for DG to reach deep into her bag of old teacher/mommy/daycare tricks and get creative. I’ve got dress-up clothes and costumes, blankets to build forts, flashlights with batteries, crafts coming out my ears and books to read and act out stories. I’ve got musicals to watch and popcorn to pop. We have an air hockey table for a tournament, trains and cars for races and board games to play. If it isn’t raining too much we have sidewalk chalk and a sprinkler for getting wet. If it does rain (and not thunder) we can jump in puddles, if there are any. I’m ready! BRING IT ON!!!
This is right about the time I wish I was still taking a mood stabilizer. Somebody hold me. And keep the wine chilled for later.
