I was alone with 6 children yesterday on 3 hours of sleep + 1 red bull. I knew I lost control of the situation when Tice's 4 year old manchild was naked and dancing on my ex-husband's front lawn. "I just like how it feels to be naked!" was his reason. He is difficult to catch sans clothing.


My night improved, however, when I found Footloose on TV. I convinced the 6 children that Footloose was the High School Musical of my generation. They quietly watched the whole movie and then lamented, "this is nothing like High School Musical." Ellie did say that Kevin Bacon is almost as cute as Zac Efron. I didn't have the heart to tell her that Kevin is 51 now.
