It’s Day #2 of no school ’round here, thanks to the blanket of snow that dumped on Tuesday. We’re more than a little cabin fevery, so I was appreciating the quiet instead of doing what a good Mom does when it’s too quiet (wondering what the goats are up to. Duh.)
Goat #2 (coming in to my room, where I am trying [and failing miserably] to get some work done): Mama? Mama, I need headphones.
Me (trying to refocus my attention and not really believing I’ve heard her correctly): Um…you need what? Headphones? Why?
Goat #2: For Lego Batman. I need headphones.

Goat #1: But Mom! She CAN’T hear this. There are VERY BAD WORDS in this.

Me (finally finding volume button): Okay, I think we’re going to have to have some new computer rules around here…
Goat #1: But Mom! I LOVE LEGO BATMAN MOM! Please Mom! I wouldn’t say those words, Mom!
Goat #2: Mama? What’s ‘smoking crack’?
Me: School better not be cancelled again tomorrow.
We probably should have just stuck with yesterday’s agenda and done this:
