Breakfast on Monday is AS EASY AS POSSIBLE. Yesterday it was pop tarts, yogurt, and orange juice.
I feel like every time I turn around someone spills something. 2 times out of the 3 Fischer is the culprit.
On the way to school, I try and play praise music and I have the kids take turns praying over each other's days. Even though sometimes this is like pulling teeth, it has become one of my favorite times of the day. ( I got in my seat and took this picture before I realized I forgot to buckle the Squish. Don't worry... I buckled him before we went anywhere!)
We dropped LK off in the carpool line (which is not for the faint of heart), and headed back home.
After scrubbing the walls, someone was ready to get up for lunch! I changed and nursed him and then got lunch going for the bros.
After the boys ate, we played for a little bit and at noon, they went to their napping beds for Reading Time. (Read about why and how we do Reading Time here and here). While the boys are reading in their beds, Archer had a little bit of Room Time in his bed.
Normally Fischer never wakes up happy, he's a very cranky waker, but yesterday he was all smiles. And boy do his smiles just hit me in the gut!
Yesterday, the serviceman was supposed to come clean our couch and might have arrived during the time I needed to pick up Laura Kate, so I asked Kyle to pick her up for me. Love seeing her sweet face walk through the door.
When I got home, Archer woke up early for a dream feed... thank you time change. Kyle had so sweetly put away dinner and the dishes for me. I swept the kitchen floor (does anyone else feel like they could do this 37 times a day and it would still need to be swept again??) and packed lunches.
Then, I decided to skip my bath because it was Monday and Dancing With The Stars was waiting for me. So I plopped down in my chair (because my couch had no covers on the cushions) and watched. I cried three times because it was icon night and Andy danced for his mom, and Nick danced for his wife who after a year of trying is pregnant with their first baby, and because in spite of the slip ups, Mark's choreography to David and Goliath for Alexa's Argentine Tango was one of the best things I have ever seen in my whole life!
