Thursday chaos, school, swimming, school, swimming, cook dinner, no idea what time Grumpy home, get kids in bath after dinner and sit down for 3 seconds.
After some time in the bath – “but we were in the pool for a long time, we have to have a long bath! – I called for them to get out and get their jarmies on.
And then I called more loudly.
And then, I dropped the please and made it a demand.
And then I yelled, as opposed to called.
And again, louder, and with a touch of anger.
And, finally “That is seven times. Get out of the bath NOW!”
“OK!! Just because we’re not doing what you said, doesn’t mean we didn’t hear you!”
