I obviously suck at this whole "daily gratitude thing." I mean, day 2 and I forgot. Doh.
Ok, for day 2, I am grateful that the kids all went to sleep without fighting. And that's INCLUDING having a friend spend the night on a whim. I know, I know; I rock.

Oh, goodnight..." before his head hits the pillow and I am alone with the kids again.
