Mama said there’d be days…

Reasons we are not outside on this beautiful day:

1. Isabel was “very frustrated!” with me when I didn’t help her figure out a difficult word in her reading.

2. Isabel was “very frustrated!” with me when I did help her figure out a difficult word in her reading.

3. Isabel was “very angry!” and had a “big feeling!” because I did not understand how situation #1 and situation #2 were different when, clearly, she “looked at [me]!” and I should have known.

4. Aidan did not want to wear pants.

5. Aidan did not want to wear shorts.

6. Aidan did not want to wear a shirt or underpants or a swimsuit or a diaper or a toga or a princess dress.

7. Aidan did want to wear shoes.

8. But only his very special runners.

9. One of which is missing.

10. Isabel refuses to come out of her room because of her “big feeling!”

11. Aidan refuses to come out of the kitchen because eventually we’ll have to open the door and then his naked tush can streak outside.

12. I don’t think the world can handle us today.
