Without fail...

There is a phenomenon in my house that confounds me on a daily basis.  In fact, it is happening right at this very moment.
All three of my children were occupied, in separate parts of the house, everything was quiet and calm. I thought "Great! I have some ideas percolating in my mind, and I can get them out"

 I took my laptop into the kitchen and sat a the table, and sat down prepared to write.
The moment my finger touched the very first letter a giant fight broke out amongst the barbarians children. One wanted to do a Pokemon battle, the other one didn't. Apparently the one that didn't want to play promised yesterday that she would today.  This started a giant argument, and a third child got involved.
So now I am back to being referee, and talking to the upset child about why no one wants to play and suggesting ways that he might create an atmosphere that would be conducive to his siblings to want to play with him.

I am now clueless as to what it was I was going to write when I sat down.


  1. Oh, I feel your pain! Don't you sometimes wish you could set up a schedule of who gets to pick what they play? :-)

  2. MamaBird, my parents actually did set up a schedule for some things! My brother and I bickered sooo much. We basically got to take turns choosing the activity. Play my game and when it's finished, I'll play your game.

  3. This happens to me all the time! Except... I only have one DD... :P
