It was early but the morning was off to a quiet start. Or so I thought as they arrived with smiles on their faces. A quick hug and they were off. Will they be kind and make it an easy day I wondered to myself?
Or were those cute little smiles hiding something darker and more sinister?
With a "please may I have some milk" and "lets read this book" we started our day. Nice I thought to myself.
An hour or so passed and I had to take a phone call. It all changed in a blink of an eye when they realized my attention was elsewhere. The atmospere became charged. With a gleam in their eye they seemed to send out a silent challenge. Game on! And as soon as I stepped out of the room it was!
They raced and roared like demons. Running, chasing, throwing, climbing. Loud shrieks and laughter.
When I came back they were rolling on the floor wrestling. I slowly looked around as I untangled them from each other taking in the overturned chairs, saw that batman had lost a leg and Barbie's younger sister was missing her head. The storybook lay in the corner waving its torn and tattered pages in surrender. It is occasions like this that I wonder to myself "WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!"
They looked at me as I looked at them. The oldest said "Boom Boom Pow" while we were squaring off. Suddenly they both smiled and gave me hugs. I was once again theirs. Game over.
