So. I’d finished work, made dinner and settled down to relax for half an hour before the evening routine of school homework, baths bedtime story etc., when Stroppy 2 came home.
Now all my offspring are Aries, which makes them complete teases – especially with each other. Within 2 minutes of Stroppy 2 being home, Stroppy 3 is screaming, he is shouting/laughing, the dog is barking like mad and I’m going more grey by the minute.
I ask them quietly to stop messing around and get on with their homework. They can’t hear me because of the din so I ask them again, this time a little louder. By now they are so hyper that they wouldn’t hear a bomb go off next door, so I resort to my coping technique for Stroppy 1 and leave them to it 😉
