so sweet i might get a cavity

I couldn't have asked for a sweeter rebound from the science fair debacle. This is what I saw when I peeked into the kids' room just now as I was vacuuming. As delightful as it is to see my children reading voluntarily, I was over the moon to catch them practically nose-to-nose while doing so.

(And can I just add that they cleaned up the entire house so I could vacuum, without being asked?)

Broken hearts are swift to mend.

what's the secret to getting them to pick up the house without being asked? :)

well, it helps if they've seen you turn into a fire-breathing dragon in an ocd furor.

but it also helps that they are my super thoughtful sweethearts who somehow love me in spite of my madness, and delight in taking care of me.

Nothing like some comics to heal the wounds of a science fair mishap. (A scheduling mishap, that is... not like some exploding-acid-phantom-of-the-opera catastrophe).
