It has been a revolving door of kiddos today. A friend is having a baby and so I had her daughter after kindergarten 12-4 for the afternoon. I am now watching another little girl on Wednesday afternoons 12-3 for a couple hours. And two days a week for a bit I am watching two older girls Mondays and WEdnesdays from 4-5:15. Dreaming up what we will do with the extra teeny bit of cash that I am earning.
It was cooler and dreary today - but honestly, my boys needed a break from the sun and outdoor play. Last night was pretty hard here. The boys were falling apart over the tiniest things. Charley actually slept until close to 8 o'clock this morning. And both boys wet the bed - probably because they were sleeping so hard.
Henry had his class today and he was a little more social during it. He chatted with his teacher and sang a bit during the circle time. Sydney was awake for the whole class and loved being held by a few of the teachers so I could do things with Henry.
This week, so far, I have made a new beef stroganoff recipe and a pork chop recipe. I still have a meatloaf recipe to try. I have never made one of those. But tonight, Ed is bringing home our favorite...Chipotle.
Modern Family is new. I will be anxiously awaiting that 30 minutes of my life. I think I will enjoy a glass of wine too.
After my mom visited for a week a couple weeks ago she sent me a card with two coffee shop gift cards. Saying something about deserving a treat or a break during the day. I waited and waited to use it thinking it would be for a fun yummy coffee...but both cards were enough that I can return a few times. Such a treat. Thanks Mom!
Lamp shopping proved to be unsuccessful this past weekend. I did go - with just Miss Sydney...and then we went as an entire family. No luck so far.
I am awaiting baby news. A best mommy friend is in the throws of labor as I type this. I can't wait to find out what they named it. I know it is a boy. EEEK! He is going to be adored by two very excited big sisters!
Basement - I. LOVE. YOU.
Chocolate - I. NEED. YOU.
Sydney slept the last two nights so great. Only waking during the 3 o'clock hour. And only for about 20 minutes! Love her.
Time to pick up around here. It has looked like it would rain all day today - and I just wish it would. I am in the mood for the pitter pat of little drops.
Someone told me that I looked skinny today. I responded that it was all an illusion. But it made me smile.
So tell me something fun about your day. What made you smile? What do you want to brag about? What are you eating for supper? What will you do between 8-10 pm tonight? I wonder all the time about all of you. Who you are..what you are doing...where you live...what are you doing all day...you inspire me by causing me to wonder...
