I am sure that Alexis has felt a little neglected over the last few days.  Megan has RSV and has taken a good amount of my time and energy.  I might be caught up on sleep finally.  Megan fell asleep at 9:15 this morning and I have always prided myself on not being wasteful so I laid down with her.  We woke up at 12!  We must have needed it.  Anyways, last night during our flawless bedtime routine Alexis was being a little stubborn on getting in bed and was being sassy.  I sat down to read her story and she made a snotty comment and I gave her a chance to change her tone and answer.  She then poured the naughty on a little more.  Well she lost her story, which caused tears to flow.  I being the kind mom that I am explained how when she acts like that she looses privileges and story time is a privilege.  When I asked her to pray she first asked that I wouldn't be mean to her.  I prompted her with "Bless me to say kind words to others." She pause for a second and said "Bless my mom to not talk during the prayer." I was a bit taken back but not so much that I wasn't able to check my laughter and have her say the prayer again the right way.  Goodness she is a wild one.  Tonight she is torturing her sister with picking her up and when Megan tries to bite her she hisses at her like a cat.  I will survive and hopefully these children will not be to damaged mentally when they enter adulthood with a crazy mom.

Oh, dear. Kids say the darnedest things. I pray that I won't damage my kids with my craziness.
