Zephyr used to call granola bars "gumballs" or something that sounded like that. Odin used to call Lemonade something that sounded like "yummy eggs".
The boys are watching a movie together in complete peace while I watch the Grammy's. Am I dreaming?!?!? BTW...Odin said, "I HATE the Grammy's! I want MY GRAMMY!"
"Where are you going Mommy?" "Out with some other mom's to make some new friends. I'm going to be brave and meet new people just like you did today at school!" "Well, how am I supposed to go out and make new friends if I have to stay home with a babysitter every night?!?!?!"
"Odin...did you like your first day at preschool?" "Ya...it was fun. It's still a work in progress...here and there."
Got Z back to sleep from 4-6:30 and thoroughly enjoyed that extra 2.5 hrs even though it meant I slept in a toddler bed with a stuffed animal for a pillow!
Mommy, are you gonna have another baby in your tummy? Why are you asking Odin? Because I want more babies in our family. Then you could play with Zephyr and I could play with the new baby! Really? Well, I guess I'll have to find a new husband then! I'll help you...Spiderman can find you one! Maybe I can find you a husband that already has a baby for us! How many babies would you like in our family Odin? I don't know...three...maybe 5? Ok then Odie...I'll work on that
I spend time every night making a nice dinner for the boys and then spend the next 3 hours trying to get them to eat it. Argh!!!!!!
Last week I kept the house clean ALL week...unfortunately, that doesn't earn me a credit toward this week. :(
sometimes gets bummed that there's no one coming home from work in the evening to adore us and to want to hear all about our day. Instant Family available for rent.
- is the happiest girl in the world :)What a FANTASTIC day in York, ME. We had SOOOOOO much fun! Easiest bedtime EVER as kids were sound asleep and transferred right into their beds! Time to toast a day well spent :)Coffee with whipped cream cause my whole gallon of milk went sour...mmmmmmmm. Did I subconsciously let it go sour on purpose just so I could use whipped cream instead? Possible.Zephyr just told me that it's ok that he spilled his cereal in our family room because the birdies will get it. Guess we've been eating outside a lot!As Henry said, after recovering from his seasickness said, "This isn't the worst day ever...it could be worse, we could get hit by a car...!". I love kids! Such a great attitude :). You know you're in a great relationship when you can still look at each other in the midst of puking kids and smile cause you're still happy :)
gave Odin a rocker haircut. He looks so cool that I'm inspired to add a little more rock star style to our Marblehead preppy life ;)Aug 2010 antibiotics
Had big plans to be productive tonight...was foiled by a 2 yr old! He insisted on falling asleep with me in my bed after us arguing about bedtime for over an hour. How is a parent supposed to resist their bed in the dark?!? I was powerless!!!!
Chased 4 kids around at Lego KidsFest with at LEAST 25,000 people and STILL had a great time, despite one peanut allergy reaction and later ride home meltdowns ;)
Tonight is an "eat a bottom of the barrel grocery dinner in front of the tv" night. What an action-packed weekend! School & Grammie's visit Friday, soccer, Audubon, Newburyport all on Saturday, Sunday school, Renaissance Festival, all with 4 kids on Sunday :) Fun but exhausting!!!!!!! :)
Here goes soccer Take 2. Let's hope today goes better than yesterday's debacle! Even if we just leave out me getting peed on I will be happy!
The boys both had a GREAT first full real day of school :) Zephyr loved it and charmed the pants off his teacher as was expected and Odin had the normal boy response..."I liked seeing my friends but I didn't want to have to go to school to play with them."
Mom...this guy can be a real pirate and he can be 9, no...12, no 16. He'll be 16.
Mom...my teachers at school embarrass me when they put their hands in their back pockets where their BUTT is.
Zephyr: Juice, Mommy!
Me: What's the word you say after juice?
Zephyr: Por favor?
