Preview of my blog to come about our weekend with the nephews. (Is it over yet?????)

Overheard from the living room where my wife is reading while our two nephews wage war on one another with Lego dudes and fight over how much space they get on couch for their armies, “I am the Queen and Overlordess of this country and as such, I demand that you split the table and couch in half and stay on your separate sides with your armies.  67 more words
