It was one of those days. You know, those days that feel like Monday's. They are crazy and unusual and you feel as though you just want to crawl back in bed and see if you can wake up on a new day!
This morning was crazy. My oldest was having an off day and I was still tired from the weekend. Having a fender bender and then driving almost 1000 miles in 3 days can do that to a pregnant lady!

You expect silence or screams to lead to some crazy situation with kids, but Ashton and Brenna have this devious little laugh that comes up when they are being rotten. And that laugh was coming from my bedroom.
