My husband is generally pretty calm and easygoing. However, one or more of the kids helped themselves to his entire bag of cookies this morning. Every single kid claimed the purest innocence, so he grounded all 4 of them from every electronic in the house, including TV. And then went blithely off to work, leaving me to deal with it.

It's a hot, sticky, muggy day, and I am now stuck in the house, with no a/c, and 4 boys between the ages of 9 and 15, all of whom are whining and moaning about not being able to do "anything fun". Every single suggestion I've made (Legos, books, drawing, etc.) has been greeted with heavy sighs and eye rolls. The only thing anybody seems to want to do is to fight with their brothers.

Please, shoot me.
