Today hasn't improved.
Dinner is started, early.
I took ten minutes and did yoga on the floor of the nursery, which helped. Then I banished them to the upstairs (I closed the gate, which hasn't been closed in months) and came down to cook the pasta.
I will make it. I will make it. I will make it.
I'm trying to find something to do after dinner so they don't just sit around and fight. But my laptop battery is at 16%.
