Panning for gold.

My sister left her 3 kids with me for 5 days (13, 13 and 12-years-old). Her 3 kids, plus my 2 kids, equals 5 kids for FIVE-WHOLE-DAYS.

The fact that it was my idea to keep her 3 kids for 5 days is beside the point. I am going to look at it as a learning experience. I learned, 13-year-old boys talk all-the-time. I learned 5 kids can eat a lot, and all the time. And, cell phones for kids are evil, but taking away cell phones is therapeutic. I also learned that keeping 5 kids busy will minimize the drama factor by about 30%. And, believe me, 30% is huge!

Yeah. I didn’t post bail. I needed the quiet time.
