A sure sign we needed a break? At the end of the day Thursday I asked some trivia questions during the last 2 minutes of the day.
The question was:
In which country are the cities of New Delhi, Bombay (Mumbai), and Calcutta located?
The answer I got from one of my 5th graders?
We had a gorgeous sunset the other evening. I managed to snap a couple pics. These were straight out of the camera...no Picniking! Beautiful, right?
Saturday mornings are pretty relaxed around our house. Here is Cole watching cartoons in his jammies at about 7:30. Normal, right?
Here's Little Miss taken at the exact same time. And can I just tell you this is her THIRD outfit of the day? And it is complete with a bra, tights, tap shoes, and 2 purses. Princess, much?
Could someone please warn my husband that I have cramps reminiscent of early labor with my first born? It woke me up at 4:30 this morning. And my Advil was in the car and it was cold outside. And I was too lazy to go get it. It's much easier to sit here and whine to you good people.
I am considering getting dressed and heading to the Big City for a little more shopping and lunch at the Chik-Fil-A. I thought this would be a winning idea with the children. I got nothing but flack. Cole's response, "I don't like that playground. I don't think it's very safe for kids to play on."
Sheesh. Since when is a 5 year old boy supposed to be concerned with safety? If you ask me, he's just a little too "busy" tending to his livestock.
I do have Monday and Tuesday "off" as the kids are going to daycare. I plan on finishing shopping, having a marathon wrapping session, and getting the house cleaned. Really clean...not just picked up. After Tuesday the kids and I will be off until Jan. 4th. So Tuesday is my last chance at a clean house for 2 weeks.
Are you braving the stores this weekend? Any last minute shopping that needs to be done?
