Dispatches from Maine

Just another person of little note writing about ordinary things. That I reside in Maine is icing on the cake.

Tricked by the Kids

You know you are getting old when you get tricked by your kids. It also might be that they are getting older, but the two go hand-in-hand. Tandy is still in San Francisco with the August '96 Moms at the annual getaway. Both girls seemed out of sorts this morning after such a hectic, cold day yesterday. They were so wiped out that even though everyone was dressed and ready for Mass, I asked them if they wanted a nap. Both are at the age naps are essentially evil, so when they admitted they were tired and needed a nap I let everyone lay down to rest. Though I hated to miss Mass this morning, I figured if they knew they were tired, I had better go with it.

More experienced parents know the next step in this tale. At 11:00am they were both spontaneously recovered and imbued with energy. I sent them off to read books and rest, but no luck there either. Tricky little monkeys got me!
