10 points to indicate the earth has tilted on its axis or perhaps the apocalypse is imminent

1. I woke up in a good mood
2. Felix has started having a (decaffeinated) coffee in  the mornings and when I was showing him how to make it  I indicated there was one very important rule he had to adhere to: that when he made it he had to make his mum a cup of tea and bring it to her. Today I had my tea brought to me when I was in the shower.
3. All the children who had to be at school were at school. ON TIME.
4. I vacuumed the car.
5. I mopped the floor of the car. Yes, my car has plastic flooring. It was about the only stipulation I had on a new car. That and that there was enough space that all four children could be in said car and not able to physically touch each other. Priorities people.
6. I went out to lunch (Chef’s work: Danks St Depot) and someone else (mum) paid.
7. My two youngest children came out to lunch too and were perfectly behaved.
8. I was not late picking the boys up from school.
9. I read the boys the riot act about coming into the supermarket (the definition of a ‘treat’; the no running, no screaming, no fighting, no squealing, no anything except breathing and walking beside me; the threat of removing chosen treat for any breaking of rules) AND they adhered to it.
10. It’s 6pm and only one child is crying.

    Someone once told me "never turn your back to the ocean's waves and NEVER turn you back to your children – because when you least expect it both can turn nasty and rip the ground from under your feet".

    So stay alert and watch you back.

    I hear you.. I will never go into the supermarket with 4 children and I avoid having them all in the car at once too

    oh man, feel free to come and spread some of that fairy dust this way!

    I'm still amazed at a vacuumed car! everytime hubby cleans the car he tells me no eating in the car – oh sure, you're not the one with 3 little kids in the car everyday!!!!!

    I am alert and growing more alarmed by the hour.

    All day I have not had to raise my voice, break up one fight, mediate one tussle over the same toy, nothing. Not a nadda.

    they're all playing beautifully.

    I tell you, it's Bizarro World.

    Enjoy. Because you know that soon you will open a door and realise you've been in a parallel universe.
