you know it's nearing the end of tax season when...

it's 7:30p and your kids (who are normally in bed at this time) are JUST sitting down to eat dinner...

you're sitting at the computer browsing facebook (instead of getting kids into bed) and THIS monkey business starts happening (and instead of stopping them and getting them upstairs into bed, you pull out your camera)...

a fun new game: let's make a bridge!

try to break the bridge!

let's use the skateboard as a bridge!

hmmm...it's not quite long enough!  don't worry Drew, we will hold it for you! we promise it's SAFE!

he thought about it for a minute, and then thankfully decided against it.

so, joshy decided it was his turn to be a bridge

and Drew's turn to break the bridge!

if you can't be a bridge, climb the outside of the staircase, it's totally safe. (notice jakob contemplating using the skateboard on the stairs...GENIUSES!)

fell off the stair railing - got an owie - the ONLY one of the night - miraculously!

joshy and drew playing "kitty" -- more like KILLER kitty...

still playing kitty while Jakob sets up his next scheme

skateboard...bridge...same thing.  right?

and the reason i say you know it's nearing the end of tax season when things like this happen, because i am just too tired to care about schedules right now.  eventually I will get up and go put them to bed and all will be peaceful!

Haha- I'm feeling the same way these days. Too tired to parent by myself. We're almost done!

Soooooooo... if I can't use "end of tax season" as an excuse, what can mine be?

I find it hilarious that our blog posts yesterday were pretty much the same topic!

I feel the same way!!! Just like Evaly said, I am too tired to be a "single parent" these days. Counting the days til it's over. It seems this has been the worse tax season ever.
