6:30a.m. - I was up for the day and not very happy about it. I was up late Thursday night baking and cooking and doing laundry. I usually wait to fold and put away laundry until after the kids are asleep because they make it their mission to unfold anything and everything that is folded. This is what I woke up to:
|it's impossible for this kid to sleep parallel to us|
Me: Instead of complaining that your donut is all gone, why don't we think about what we have to be thankful for? Like getting donuts for breakfast...
Harrison: I'M NOT THANKFUL FOR ANYTHING!
|Cue meltdowns in 3, 2, 1!|
9:30a.m. - I got the kids/backpacks/breakfasts/drinks all dropped off and Harper gave me her Mother's Day present that she made for me. I love it!
10:00a.m. - I stopped by a local church to get Harrison registered for VBS this summer. It was so weird driving home. I kept checking my clock because it seriously felt like it was 9 o'clock at night by how dark it was outside. This is what my house looked like when I walked through the front door:
10:30a.m. - I spent my kid-free hours cleaning my house and cooking some of the food for Harper's party. And because of the thunder and torrential downpours outside, this big scaredy-cat was under my feet the whole time:
|pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant...|
2:30p.m. - Harper didn't nap at school again and she fought me BIG TIME at home, but I finally defeated her. Muahahaha. I had to take a picture to document her pure sweetness here...I can guarantee you that she was NOT this sweet in the moments leading up to this picture. :)
3:00p.m. - When I went to tell Harrison quiet time was over, this is what I walked in to:
|puppy shirt, football pants, and cowboy boots on the wrong feet. Gotta love it.|
6:30p.m. - Rick came home with a pizza since our kitchen was pretty tied up. We ate dinner, played some more, then it was bath time and time for the rest of their night time routines.
8:30p.m. - Harper went to bed but Harrison was a different story. He remembered that it was Friday and that Fridays are Family Nights. The fact that we had celebrated the night before instead was of no comfort or satisfaction to him. Rick caved and told him he could sleep in our bed and even though I was thinking it was a bad idea in my head, I had lots of things to do so I stayed out of it. :) I stayed up late again baking and working on last minute party projects -- you know, the ones that you underestimate how much time they will require? Like these cute little guys:
I will try to work on a post about the party details soon. I love, love, love Dr. Seuss and I had such a fun time putting everything together!
