A few snapshots of funny things; which are the only highlights of this day so far amongst all the fighting and hitting and pushing and yelling between the kids (plus blisters and sore back from raking leaves for 2 hours).
Elliott: Daddy you should sit in the hot tub and tell other men about how your back hurts.
Elliott: Call the police because Abigail squeezed my face and won’t let me look at the telescope.
Me: Elliott do you want to know what a mutant is; from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?
Elliott: No Daddy! There\’s no such word! Don\’t be a show off!
Me: Goodnight sweetie, and …
Abigail: … and you’ll see me in the morning as always. I know Daddy, you say that every night.
Me: Sorry. Would you like me to stop?
Abigail: No Daddy, it makes me feel special.
Overall, not a bad day (not a great day, but moments like that help)
