My day started out with my wittle guy waking me up because he was moaning in his sleep. His feet hurt, so I gave him magnesium and he held on to me. I fell asleep and woke up feeling as if I got no sleep at all.
Trying not to be grumpy…I put the boys in the tubby with foam bubble bath. But I think they also woke up on the grumpy side. They were bickering, whyning and picking on each other. For once, I did not know what to do because it is unusual for them to act this way.
The rest of the day felt like it was going in slow motion and no matter how many deep breaths I took, everything struck a nerve.
Even knowing that we had people coming over that I enjoy spending time with did not lighten my mood. But then they came.
We had our cousins over for dinner. We’re more friends than anything. Oddly, the kids did not play like they usually do, but it was truly a relaxing time. We had lasagna for dinner with a salad with poppyseed dressing and my sweet friends brought over flourless chocolate cake. Gotta loooove them!
We had adult time and it felt wonderful! Seriously, there is nothing better than having children that behave so well that it almost feels like they are not there. It felt like a recharge. How fun.
They went home and we played the Chutes and Ladder board game with the boys, before settling in bed and reading a couple bedtime stories. Still, my big guy was slipping back to the cranky side, and I was slipping as well.
The boys are now sleeping and I am writing from my phone again. Which by the way, we have not received our router to receive the internet. Bah Humbug! Better call Verizon tomorrow. But what can I do? Tomorrow will be a great day.
Until next time,
