I'm not going to sugar coat it. Today was tough! It's a miracle that I still have all four children as each one of them did their very best to make today hard. I was no innocent bystander barking (a polite way to say yelling) at them and pretty much convinced it would be best to just park the car and walk away. I certainly gave them plenty of ammo for future adult therapy sessions.
Exhaustion for all of us hit like a brick wall today!
We pick up ZaZa at the airport tomorrow. No one should take on the sights of DC without backup especially if you have been with 4 children for 11 days by yourself.
The day did end nicely thanks to a sweet friend and my SIL's mother, Sue Conklin. Sue welcomed us to her home with open arms, great food, LEGOS, and lots of love and smiles. It was like chicken soup for the soul and made a really bad day end on a really great note. Thank you so much!!
We left Sue heading to Alexandria. Everyone is in bed looking angelic. It almost makes me forget about today and remember yesterday when we were all smiles loving each other at dinner and laughing while we danced at the Governor's Palace.
Not really! Though I do love each of those children to the moon and back!
Here's to a fresh start tomorrow.
