The kids could not be left unsupervised, today. No, they weren't fighting (much), but they were rough-housing and hurting one another. Often. The upside is that they both took right around two hours of solid sleep naps.*
By that time, I was a little too tired from chasing after them and scolding them to get a whole lot done.
I'm proud that I haven't run away screaming. After today, that feels like an accomplishment. And tomorrow, the kids are going up to my mom's for the day, so that I can get caught up.
*The pixie took her nap today quietly, sadly, voluntarily, and with an ice-pack. Her brother had slammed his bedroom door without realizing that she was right behind her, and got her just beneath the left eye with his doorknob.
