As I write this, there are ten children here at my house with me (although only seven are actually sleeping here).
Why yes, I do have a drink in my hand.
But no...I haven't had 'too many'. I made a fully coherent choice to have this many children here.
Would you believe me if I told you hosting ten was easier than letting only one of my children have a sleepover at a time?
A few photos to illustrate my point...
All the silence has cost me is two pizzas, gatorade, and a box of ice-cream bars.
Oh yes...and my own bottle of wine.
Mark is away for the weekend and we try to capture as much quality family time as we can when he is around. And sleepovers...we don't have them too often when he is home. I took this opportunity to indulge the kids a bit.
Well...it's movie time.
If you'll excuse me I need to get to my wine and my own quiet time.
