Why Can't Every Day Be Like Friday?

It's Friday!


My boys came home early from school. And without delay, they hung up coats, put away shoes and emptied lunch bags.


Last month, I enforced a rule that homework, music lessons must be completed; and showers must be taken before computer time.

And funny how these tasks are always accomplished - most notably on a Friday!

At five o'clock, we have dinner.

I'm astonished as my kids devour the meal in ten minutes, not a word spoken!

No second servings? No dessert?


Nothing but eat and run.

And I'm left all alone at the table.


What happened to my boys?

Strange. But it's remarkably quiet here.


Why can't every day be like Friday?!
