This is so great! I love having all my kids home all day long! We'll do crafts, go on outings, bond and have fun.

Summer Vacation Week 4:
That's it!

No, more, fighting!I don't care who was looking at who, enough with the bickering. Go outside and play, mommy's looking at Pinterest.

Too hot?
Your hungry? I just fed you!
I don't care whose looking at who! Yes! Yes! You can go watch TV, just stop yelling.

Summer Vacation week 6, day 10 of temperatures at or near 100.

Mommy, can I have cookies for breakfast?

Sure, sure whatever (fanning myself) are you sure this air is on? It's so hot in here, I think I'm melting. What are you doing? Who told you could have cookies for breakfast.
