You made it! Here it is... the blog where you get to sit back and laugh at - or be completely horrified by - life with 5 kids, 2 parents, some frogs, a cat & a rabbit (and those are just the creatures we know about).


Tuesday's Tip (#35)

Here's a tip for you:

Don't try too hard.

I just told the kids when they got up that we were going to the zoo today. I thought they'd be pretty excited that we had plans for the day. I was met with, "Meh," "No," and "Can't we just stay home?" And when I said that we were still going, Sophie informed me that she's just staying home with the dog.

Seriously, fools? By 11 am you'll all be bored and asking me what there is to do. I'm no dummy. And this isn't a democracy. The tyrant mom has spoken.

I'm going to wear you people out at the zoo whether you like it or not and then you can lounge around the house all afternoon. 

Wish me luck.

Have a tip to share? Or some sense to knock into my kids? Feel free to leave a comment below...
