Must Have Been the Chocolate

We had a beautiful but exhausting weekend.  Especially the kids.  They were up late on Friday, early on Saturday, ran the whole day Saturday, and then were go go go yesterday.  And then there was the candy.  Oh the candy.  Both my MIL and mom clearly restrained themselves, as did I (only in their egg hunt) but still, that's 3 candy hauls and that means a LOT to a bunch of little kids.  Anyway, we did our best to limit it but they still had more than they would normally have on any given day.

When we got home last night we got the kids into their bedtime cycle and Caroline was more helpful than usual.  And by more helpful, I should just say helpful because she tends to be the one who gums up the works most nights.  Not really bad behavior, just doing her own darn thing at her own darn pace - frustrating!  I swear it takes her 20 minutes to get dressed after her bath most nights.  She just gets easily sidetracked (dancing/singing usually takes over).  But last night, she got it in her head she was going to be helpful and on her best behavior.  Of course she kept asking me if I thought she was being good and I commended her.  But right before bed she looks at me and says, "I was very good and helpful tonight.  It must have been allllll that chocolate."

Nice try, Caroline.  I don't think that was it.
