It's amazing what five jerk boys standing in front of the classroom singing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" in all seriousness will do to turn your mood around. They finally dropped their "too cool for school" attitude and bought in to what we were doing. And they were adorable! Just what I needed.
Exhaustion has kicked in. Hopefully tonight will go better. Ethan's still running a fever and somewhat lethargic, but my hopes are still high. And Lucas is just hilarious. He's finally figured out how to play and he's swatting away at those toys. Ethan's watching Wall-E for the third time today. He even knows most of the lines (of course, there aren't many...)
So all is well - kind of. At least I don't feel so down in the dumps as last night. Hopefully tomorrow can be truly cheery.... If only I can get a good night of sleep!
