I came downstairs this morning to a game of Clue, gone bad. "They didn't let me have a turn to guess!" Macy was so hysterical I had to pick up three cards and put them into the envelope so she could have a turn to guess. Not before showing her the cards first of course so that she would get it right.
We also did not have any clean spoons in the silverware drawer, and I guess eating with a ladle was easier than opening the dishwasher.
Samm almost had a meltdown when I told her that I had to have a turn to brush her hair because it still looked tangled, but it diffused pretty quickly and I was able to get her and James out the door without anyone stomping their feet or whining, or yelling. Success for us.
Since everyone was in a good mood and Laila was even sitting on the floor playing I decided to toast and bagel and sit down to read a little. Before I had even taken one bite of the bagel, Macy was asking for half of it and Laila was doing her work up to crying hand twirl. I could tell Laila was just tired still so I stuck her back in bed and managed to read one article before jumping in the shower.
Usually when I take a shower Macy just comes up to the bathroom with me and rummages through the cupboards and plays in the sink until I get out, but sometimes I try and distract her with toys or games so I can have a few minutes to be completely alone. This morning she wanted her Moon Dough. Don't ever buy Moon Dough!
It's not so easy to take a picture of the back of your own head I discovered.
And let me ask you all this. "At what point do you become too old for pink camo capris?" I found them at the bottom of my drawer this morning and I was so excited that they still fit that I decided to wear them even though I probably should have put them in my Good Will pile instead.
Spring means dirty sandal feet!
And pink cheeks and Popsicles.
If my sandal feet were to tell a story they would say "I'm a mom and my kids come first." In my former life, I would never have set foot outside the house with toes as awful looking as mine. It just seems like painting my toenails is always number fifteen on a ten max item list.
Normally after swimming lessons I rush everyone home to get into bed as soon as possible, because I've had enough and need some quiet time, but today we had to go to Target afterwards because James spent his own $10 on some night vision spy glasses from Scholastic, but somewhere between getting the box at school and bringing them home he lost three of the four batteries that are required and I promised him yesterday that we would go today after school to get new ones, forgetting that it was swim lesson day. Of course Target didn't have the ones we needed. We also had to pick up a birthday present for one of James' friends though so they trip wasn't a complete waste. Getting James to just picks something is never an easy task
How is it possible that I ended up with two of the most un-girly girls on the planet? All they want to do is run around with boys and get dirty. And watch/play Bey Blades. There is still hope for Laila.
Then we made it home just before the thunderstorm. I love the smell of rain.
