Tuesday night was not so very different from other nights. I was tired, and the kids both had long days. We did the dinner thing, and I decided they were clean enough to go to bed without the bath. Something different happened and even happened before dinner. Both kids were huggy and full of laughter. It really made for a much more pleasant evening than we often have. We did have the obligatory fuss as my daughter went about getting ready at her glacial pace, but even that passed by and ended with hugs and giggles. They even went to sleep right when I put them down. Don’t know how it happened, but I do really like it.
