This morning I awoke to birds on my bed. It was like something out of a disney movie, only they didn't try to dress me.
My kids learned how to make origami birds with their babysitter yesterday and they must have been incredibly busy because there were like a hundred of them. I thought it was so sweet I didn't even yell at them for waking me up.
Then we made pancakes (the shake and pour kind...they liked them just as much as pancake puffs (see "Pancake Puffs" entry if you have no idea what I'm talking about)) and we all sat together at the table for breakfast without any screaming, yelling or kicking anyone. They told jokes, we hugged, we kissed, we played with our food and no one got hurt.
Okay, maybe the birds didn't sing me a "happy little working song", but for me, this morning was a fairytale.
