First thing in the morning, as we're gathering in the kitchen to dish out breakfast Conner says: "Good news mom! You get to have us around all day!" Hooray for me! He continued, "But the bad news is, you only have 2 arms and there are 3 kids to take care. I'll try to take care of myself so you don't have to worry about me." What a clown.
It was a strawberry picking, freezer jam making, hair cutting day
A quick trip to the orthodontist to check on Conner's teeth.
Swim at the pool.
Conner's piano recital. (I would post the video, but I don't have the right cord to connect the camera to my computer)
Presidency meeting at the park.
And the boys' dresser fell on top of Anna. As a mom you get pretty good at distinguishing sounds, which comes in pretty handy. It enables you to prioritize and decide if you really need to run up the stairs or out into the yard to see what is the matter. This is good, because otherwise you'd be running around all day checking on every bang, crash, cry, pout, and scream you hear. That would take a lot of time, and it would be really annoying. After a few years in this motherhood gig, I'm pretty good at distinguishing these sounds.
When I heard a "crash! crash! boom! thud! crash! scream! scream! mom! mom!" . . . . It didn't take long to get me bolting up the stairs. Conner and Payton met me at the top of the stairs with tears in their eyes, "the dresser fell on Anna!" I turned the corner into their room to find this giant dresser on her back. I propped it up and either she crawled out or I pulled her out (can't remember) and her tears and my cuddling began (I think I was just in shock). The poor boys were crying and Payton says, "I can't even stop shaking." I looked her over, she got all her crying out, and from all appearances she was perfectly fine. Crisis averted. After some investigating it seems that she had attempted to climb up the dresser. I think she was shaken up enough that she will not be trying that again.
Play at the park
Payton's art class - they made paper mache masks
A date: thai food, temple, and Coldstone.
Adopted almost-3-yo Jaren for the day
Ventured out for a short walk when we saw a break in the clouds, and ended up getting caught in a down pour on the way home. It was FUN! Anna was soaked & dripping (the only one without a hood). Payton didn't think it was so fun so I told him he had to stay outside until he could smile & laugh about it. He pulled together some acting skills real quick.
as for the weekend?
we've got a whole lot of nothing planned. :)
