There are times when we are silly. Dancing around the house, singing songs, making up funny rhymes.
There are times when we all enjoy each other. Snuggling, laughing, sharing so nicely you can taste the sweetness in the room.
There are also those times when the it seems we fill hours feeling frustrated, crying, whining and fighting. When they take turns marching angrily to their rooms for a "rest." When my jaw is tired from clenching my teeth. It is these times that we all need the silly times the most. We listen to music and sing - because you can't really be grumpy when you force yourself to sing. And we make plans about what to do when no one is sick and the snow/ice/slush is gone.
Beach anyone? Because like singing, it is pretty much impossible to be grumpy on a beach.
