not already.

why is grounding my child so much harder on me than it is on him?

the newness of school has worn off already.
one month into it and both children are getting checks daily for talking and acting silly.
and i'm struggling to figure out how to make the importance of school sink into their heads.


the rain has started falling outside.
i'm so thankful for the cold rain today.
the afternoon darkness it brings with it feels just about right.

now if you'll excuse me, there's a comfy sofa and well-loved blanket calling my name.
and a long weekend to look forward to also--one filled with cranky, whining, grounded children.
