Power's Out since 6 am
Little O was thoroughly freaked out.
Today I am thankful that my children are well behaved enough that when emergencies come up, I can drag them in to my work and they sit miserable and quiet.
Okay, Big O is quietly reading and Little O is miserable. She has coloring books and stickers, but the need to chatter incessantly is inherent in a five year old. She is a tough little soldier, though, and sings quiet little songs as she colors.
This will not last--it CAN'T last.
That's okay, it just has to last until my lunch. I'll take them home then, power or not. Big O can have my cell phone and I'll buy them CrackDonald's, and it will be light enough to SEE, at least. If Big O is consigned to a day of Candyland and Chutes & Ladders, well, there are worse fates...
She got Pretty Pretty Princess for Christmas!
I love my O's.
