{deep breath, be strong mom}
Me: said you have to go, and if I say YES, you have to. End of story

Three dogs run outside, Rango is off to find Scout, his girlfriend. Zeus and Fancy chase bunnies. Ruby, 4 yr old neighbor across the street is outside, she is terrified of Rango. She starts screaming. I chase them. Luke runs outside naked, Tiffany following with a diaper he just ripped off, covered head to toe in a rash. Boys still refuse to get in car, their socks get wet from the storm last night. They take their socks off. No shoes, no socks, three dogs outside, Luke is naked, and no one is in the car.

In the end I am not sure I really won...

BTW - Both boys cried at drop off.
Time for a Drink, right??
