Have you ever had a time in your life where you feel like your kids have been taken over by some other alien life form? Yesterday felt like that, kinda weirded me out. They were behaving like such angels. They did their chores, they read their books, they did their exercise (yeah we didn't quite make it on a hike yesterday), they kept saying thank you, they didn't complain either. There was no fighting. The saying thank you is when I really started noticing. They said it a lot. It made me so happy but completely weirded out at the same time. It turned out to be a fantastic day. I hope to be able to repeat that again, maybe today and tomorrow and every day thereafter.
