I always enjoy Monday mornings because of the blanket of silence that falls over the house after the kids head off to school. The effect has only been magnified after being housebound with said kids for the entire weekend. My nerves have been stretched like rubber bands from listening to "I'm bored", "He's bothering me", "He won't let me play the Wii", and the inevitable bumps and bruises that come from rough-housing. Calgon, take me away! I'm off to drink a cup of coffee...Mommy's little helper!
