Neighbors?!? fireworks woke us up at midnight. We thought the kids fell out of bed. All clear.
Before that we played on the internet, snacked on a pint of Ben and Jerry’s (Karamel Sutra), and watched Dr. Who. My husband fell asleep before 10. I finally shook him awake off the couch and got him into bed. Baby…err toddler was up intermittently to nurse and then by around 6 we were awake. We had a chat about goals for ourselves and the kids (no resolutions) and then the kids were up and at ’em.
The kids played with legos for about an hour and a half, practiced their alphabet, had a late breakfast, watched a film on Florence Nightingale, and then went outside to play. I took Casey out for a little bit, took a few pictures, put her down for a nap, made ham and beans for lunch, the kids ate, played and watched peter rabbit, then sent the kids out with marshmallows to roast over the fire. Took Casey back out and we all had a taste of ‘mallow and then took a walk. We made homemade cheese sticks and pizza for dinner and the kids finished watching home alone. Trying to add in more of the things we love and worry less about the things that don’t work for us.
