- "You can't ...",
- "We have to ...",
- "That goes away here not there"
- "We're not allowed to .."
- "Only one at a time"
and my personal favourite:
- "Put it away yourself. Mum's not your slave!"
All in all, it's been a relatively quiet night despite having 5 boys in the house (2 x 13yo, 1 x 12yo, 1 x 11yo & 1 x 9yo). I think the 3 older boys finally fell asleep some time around 2am after their sugar-filled 'midnight' feast at 11pm. Luckily for them, they let me sleep in this morning until 9am or there would have been bloodshed for sure!
Now I just have to negotiate the wreckage that is my kitchen for a cup of coffee and then I can start the day in earnest. Or not.
