This week is spring break for my twins, which means I’m not getting a lot of writing done. And by “a lot” I really mean, “any”.
As many of you know, I have nine-year-old twins, and they are very good at coming up with stuff to do to keep themselves occupied. We don’t allow a lot of screen time in our house, so they’ve learned long ago to invent games and things to do. However, while I do appreciate their imaginative play, sometimes it gets a bit rowdy at the Corbett house, which doesn’t blend well with my “zone out completely” writing style.
Here’s a small sampling of what I said to them within the first three hours of spring break…
Me to Girl Twin: “Why is your mattress on the kitchen table?”
Me to Boy Twin: “Why are you wheeling the kitchen island down the hallway?”
Me to Boy Twin: “No, you can’t play basketball in your new suit jacket. That’s for special events.” (He has an over the door hoop)
Me to both: “No, you can’t prop one end of your mattress on the counter and use it as a slide.”
How’s your week going? Any exciting events happening for you?
