The kids have been playing together very well for the last few hours, cooperating, sharing, giggling, a parent's dream. And now they are joining forces to test the rules of the house and the limits of my patience. Hmmm . . . unintended consequences, double-edged sword and all that.
I'm very pleased at this unprecedented level of cooperation, naturally. I'm also a little scared by it, as they have stumbled onto new ways to test my sanity.
But if one more person jumps on the furniture. . . !
