Week in My Life – Sunday 11/27


Adventuroo WIML sun 13Sunday, the last day of Week in My Life. I’ve had a good time documenting my daily activities. It was tough but I’m glad I did it.

Sunday started off pretty normal.
7am – kids up playing with trains, Joe and I try to get a few more minutes of sleep
7:15am – Noah comes in to cuddle and plays Toca Boca Hair Salon on my phone.

7:45 am – Noah wants to make breakfast too.

Joe and I are still in bed and we hear a bit of clanging around in the kitchen.
Me: “Joe, will you go check on the boys? It sounds like they are getting into stuff.”
Joe: “How much of a mess could they make?”

Noah enters the room.
Noah: “I spill it.

Us: “Uh-Oh”

Half a gallon of milk.

I leave Joe to clean up the mess (complete with pulling out the stove) and deal with the big kids. While I’m upstairs I hear a big crash and Joe make a sound of pain. As he was getting the mop out of the hall closet a giant tub of Legos fell on his head and scattered across the floor. Jude offered to clean them up.

We usually go to church but the milk/Lego incident of 2013 caused some serious delays so we opted to stay home. The boys watched a little TV then helped Joe clean out the garage. Simon took his nap. The boys ate lunch while Joe and I sat on the couch folding laundry and talking about our upcoming week.

Then I put Simon down for his nap while Joe and Jude played the Wii (Lego Star Wars). If Jude is good all week he gets to play a video game with Dada on Sunday. He LOVES playing video games but doesn’t understand moderation which is why we currently use it as a reward and not a regular activity (he gets a little worked up about it too).

WIML27_1While the littles napped and the bigs played video games I snuck out to do a few errands on my own.  I love the Dollar Tree, everything is just $1! I bought a new broom since ours got a little gross in the clean-under-the-stove-milk incident this morning. It was only $1.

Photo Oct 27, 3 35 57 PMThen I stopped in the grocery store to pick up a few ingredients for a new recipe I’m working on. I’m not a big fan of our Lowes foods but it’s right up the road so when I need a few things I give in and shop there.

Simon loved my new alfredo pasta dish (recipe coming soon).

wiml27_2The boys were pretty amped this evening so we tried some calming activities like reading books to get them ready for bed.

wiml27+3They had a little trouble getting to sleep, especially Noah. I think someone gave him coffee.

That concludes the Week in My Life. In case you were wondering, it was pretty typical week (chaotic messes and all).
I love my crazy boys, they always keep me own my toes.
