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.
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.
Half a gallon of milk.
Then Simon starts crying from his crib upstairs.
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.
After the mess was cleaned up and we regrouped(there was bacon involved) the morning was back on track. 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).
While 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.
Then 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.
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.
