First day of the Winter Break.
The kids get a week off... we're still not sure why, and we've lived here for 9 years.
Oh- a week plus a day, for the new Saskatchewan Government's Family Day next Monday.
So- it's the first day.
First sleep in day.
First take it easy day.
First "get up when you wake up" day.
And when do I wake up?!?
Just before 5:00.
And WHY do I wake up?!?
Because I heard a bad sound in the kitchen.
It was a quietly crashing sound.
Like something shifting in the dishrack.
The bad sound was followed by a series of bad sounds.
Rather ONE bad sound repeated with irritating regularity.
Click-click..... click-click..... click-click.....
It was The Boy- the oldest one, and he's been feeling a little stuffy in the nasal passages.
After some initial rummaging, he was attempting to open the cough syrup.
The cough syrup with the "push and turn", child-proof lid.
Children are a gift from God.... Children are a gift from God... Children are a gift from God...
