An Olympic Temper Tantrum

by Stacey

We have been loving the Olympics in our house.

Rob and I have watched all the big events each night but because everything is on so, so late we have been recording each night’s festivities for the girls. Then the following night, we have been able to fast forward to all the best moments of the night before.

Most nights, Katherine has chosen to watch more Olympics instead of going upstairs in time to read before bed. Tonight, though, there wasn’t a ton of interesting Olympic coverage so we stopped watching in time to read before bed time. That said, we didn’t have as much time as usual and Katherine knew it.

“Mommy! We have hardly read at all! I don’t want to watch the Olympics any more. It is messing up our reading time!”

Now if that’s not the best temper tantrum ever I don’t know what is….

    Stacey — I love it! You’re such a fantastic mommy! Claire and I have been reading the “Little House” series together, and she is heartbroken when we have another activity or weekend event that cuts into our reading time. (Claire didn’t mind staying up to see Michael Phelps last night, though. She’s older than Catherine, and I think she’s developing a water-logged crush.) Kudos to Miss Catherine for having her priorities set straight…
