Holy Sh#%!

What a day doesn’t even begin to cover it!

We’ve had tantrums, scenes that looked like something out of “Animal House”, enemas that took 5 people to administer, explosions of all sorts, a naked twelve year old covered in hummus, a scooter in the pool, and a five year old shutting lights off to show us his glow in the dark train tracks while we’re trying to clean feces off of sheets so we can put them in the washing…
