The Rope

At the end of a long week and another dinner on my own with the kids I exclaimed to no one in particular that I was at the end of my very short rope!!!

Tommy then being confused  innocently asked me "How short is your rope exactly momma?"

At this moment.... it got a little longer. Some of the knots of anxiety and irritation undone by six year old accidental humor.

A few minutes later at dinner the kids and were talking about Camelot.... King Arthur.... Guinevere...

 I was trying to ring bells because I know they have seen movies involving the legend and we just got the Magic Treehouse book, Christmas in Camelot.

 I asked Bella if she knew what it was and she said, "The place with the bears?"

I looked at her confused and Vivian exclaimed, "Ohhhhhh! You mean Canada?"

um..... no.... well.... yes. Canada has Bears.

But that is not what we were getting at...

Ok never mind.

In other news today was the first real snow for this winter. Talk about excited kids! They were out playing in the glorified dusting before nine and in again before ten! 

Here is to a happy and relaxed weekend and a mama with a slightly longer rope at the end of it all!
