Yesterday, Pirate Redbeard woke up on the wrong side of the bed. This is bad because, as a rule he spends his life in pretty good spirits …. for a pirate!

After a long day of putting up with people who did  not live up to his standards or expectations he came home to Buttercup and the Queen. He made a valiant effort to be social and involved, but the fact we had a band parent meeting for 1 1/2 hours didn’t help. Really, it was the last straw.

When we got home I insisted on Oreo therapy.

It works when nothing else will. Thus, Rule #6 is that all homes must have Oreos and milk on hand at all times for such emergencies. (Frosty mug suggested)

The Pirate Redbeard was sent to bed early and the Queen had control of the remote control….. today started off much better for everyone.

Carry on!
