The Sweetie Pie has been called away for a few days. I am the only grown up in a houseful of children, and there is a snowstorm in the forecast. And have I mentioned the Peanut is potty-training? I am praying hard, and this is my prayer:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the poopie attitudes;
courage to change the poopie underwear;
and the wisdom to know the difference.
