Where are MY kids?

Full moon? I checked, not tonight, but you should have seen it. I am convinced that someone has taken my children and replaced them with these... these... well behaved things?! I was working on the computer answering etsy convos and adjusting listings and I decided to make a nice big dinner. Normally this means I have 4 kids in the kitchen, under foot, and driving me crazy. Tonight something was off. I got up and started to defrost the meat, boil the water, and all that jazz when I realized my oldest two were doing their homework quietly at the table. WITH OUT BEING TOLD! Okay shock one.. no big deal. Then when they are done my son shuts OFF the TV and picks up a BOOK. Here I am making dinner.........


I realize the house is quiet so I ask the kids what they are doing when I see all the girls at the table coloring. I listen for a bit and hear an argument brewing... Here we go... these are my kids.. then out of nowhere Coralee, the oldest girl, resolves the issue by giving her sister her crayons WITH OUT BEING ASKED. I am at a loss for words but I had to have a witness. So I took pictures..........

And I called my mother who also noticed the dead quiet in the background. She asked if the kids were home..... I was like 'yup and they are being GOOD'. She laughed and told me to kiss and praise them like no tomorrow for being so good. We cleared the table and headed out to the living room where we watched 'Meet Dave' ... great movie by the way!! We are all sitting down and watching when the older girls start cracking up laughing in a not so funny part.. I looked over and there is Neela standing on the sofa.. BUTT NAKED holding her diaper and laughing " I sexy... I nakie... whooo hooo"...... At last I have found my children =)
