5 minutes of sweet


Today was hot. We went to Sing and Sign class this morning, and the boys were making me a little crazy. After lunch, Chris wanted to go outside and ride his bike. How do you explain to a 4 year old that when it's disgustingly hot and humid, the last place Mommy wants to be is outside? Argh. So I told him OK, for 5 minutes. Then I couldn't get the garage door open. I almost backed out, but instead I told him we couldn't get the bike, we'd have to just go outside and play.
So we did, we played red light, green light, I chased Sam out of the mulch in the garden. And the boys were sweet. When I got hot, I decided our 5 minutes was up. It was only slightly more than 5 minutes, but they were still sweet.

And then Chris didn't nap, and he bounced off the walls, making me nutsy, for the rest of the day. But at least I had that 5 minutes of Sweet.
