Yesterday was a long day. The last day of the weekend, moods seemed glum as we all prepared to face yet another week. It was not a bad day by any means, but surely a long one. I was counting down the minutes until the time I could put the kids in bed and relax to a movie with Matt. I was a little irritable when I put the girls in the tub that night. They kept splashing me and fighting with each other because they each had a foot or toe on the other one's side of the tub. Just when I was on my last bit of patience, Morgan looked up at me and asked me where I was from. I was a bit unsure of what she was asking of me, so I asked her what that meant. She said, "I am from preschool and dance class." I asked her where she thought I was from, and she replied "You are from Zurg and Elle is from Walmart. Miles is from work, like Daddy goes to work. But Daddy is not from work. He is from the aliens!" I can't tell you what this means, as it is unexplainable. All I can tell you is that it made the whole day worth getting through and it put a smile on my face! Hopefully it puts one on yours!
