A very long two hours

I picked Quinn up at 4 pm at school today. It's now 6 pm and he is already in bed. He was a tantrum-y mess, crying, pulling my hair, throwing his red little face back in anguish over the slightest frustration.

The very sweet little girl next door who Quinn adores was at our house during most of this display, and while Quinn cried, she barraged me with questions and requests: "Can I have some water?" "Can you put my Mama Mia cd on the cd player?" "Will you play tic tac toe with me with Quinn's bath crayons?" "Can I put my feet in Quinn's bath?"

Then she made a comment so hilarious, I'm laughing as I remember it, now that she has gone home and Quinn is in bed:

"Your eyes have kinda dark circles underneath."

Um, yeah...

You poor girl. Sounds like a really tough afternoon! I wish I were there to give you a big hug and make you some hot chocolate!

Ha! I can beat that, though...A friend's daughter once asked me if I had babies in my boobies 'cause they're so big. Sigh. Kids.
