Of course that wasn't enough. I dropped a glass on the kitchen floor and as I'm trying to make sure I got every single little piece swept up and thrown away, the kids both picked that time to ask me to "eat" their play-doh ice cream they were making at the table. Later today we needed a few groceries, and I was looking forward to getting out of the house. Couldn't find my keys. Argh. I have an extra key, but it was still frustrating. I had visions of them accidentally being knocked into the trash and considered going through it (I just took it out this morning :-/), not at all looking forward to it. God bless Hannah. When I was obviously frustrated she said so sweetly, "Mama, you don't have to be frustrated. I like for you to be in a good mood." Then she proceeded to give me a hug, and I felt like the worst mother ever. Or the best, depending on how you look at it. :-p
The day is now over, and I am pleased to say it ended well. Kids went to bed without a fight, I got a workout in (thanks Jillian Michaels!), and we got a good bit of school done this morning. I definitely do not have a lot to complain about. Oh, yeah...I also found my keys. They had fallen into Hannah's workbox. Silly me.
