Not a good way to start the day

I woke up to the kids fighting this morning. I should be a bit more specific by saying that it was Elliott and Emmett. Gavin was in his room, most likely quietly running a mission.

The boys have been at each other’s throats since they woke up and if I don’t intervene, this will end up dictating the course of our day. We have my niece’s first birthday this afternoon and they need to be in a better place before we can pull that off.

I’m making everyone get dressed and we’re going for a walk.

The kids don’t get enough exercise as it is and when they are full of negative energy, life is so much harder for everyone. Going for a simple walk, will help them to find a better place.

Emmett’s mood is particularly nasty this morning and it’s not going well for him. He needs a shakeup right now and while that kind of change can most often be a negative thing, in cases such as this, it’s a necessary evil. Any change at this point is a positive thing.

In order to do this, I’m giving up my normal walk because it’s too far for them to go, especially when it’s 33°F outside. We’re going to do one single lap around the track and hope for the best.

As the adult in the room, I’m already overwhelmed by all of this animosity. I can’t imagine what it’s like for the kids.

This is not a good way to start the day.
