Shhhhh! Do you hear that?

It is quiet here. Don't really know how it happened, but the kids, the dog and one cat are playing in the backyard. They are all being quiet, so I am a little scared to go outside.

I have avoided the back door and the windows that face into the backyard for the last half hour. Instead I straightened the kitchen pantry and baked brownies. And if I am really lucky the kids will still be outside when the brownies are long gone.

It has taken the kids and I a couple of days to settle back into our regular routine. The first day was pure chaos. Yesterday we seemed to just annoy the heck out of each other. But we were stuck in the house because of winds that might have blown a toddler off of the playscape. Good times.

This morning we ventured out to the grocery store. And since we got home, the kids seem to have discovered something interesting about the dog and cat.

Would someone please go back there and see what is so funny? I am afraid to look.

Shame on you for not wanting to share your brownies....especially with your own children !

But the fact is I did share.

Because I had to, not because I wanted to, though
