I was at my last straw when the kids went to take a nap.
Mark: Why don't you go take a nap?
Zoe: Because I do not feel sleepy.
Mark: (looking at one of them many 1/2 done projects, that I was working on earlier (when both kids where up and it was kinda a mad house.... silly yes?))
Zoe: What I really want to do is go to a bookstore and drink a hot drink.
Mark: Well just go then.
Zoe: Bye (grabbing purse, phone, keys to car... gone in like 1 min flat)
1 1/2 later I am feeling much better. Thank you Mark for letting me go, and thank you Stephanie for the great idea!
