Breaking rules

Um…bed at 9:00 and blog every day?! What was I thinking!

Valentine’s Day in summary…

Workout
Try to convince kids to sleep until 7:00
Fail
Drink coffee
Hold Wednesday on lap
Tell Tuesday to play quiet
Hold Friday on lap
Take an unusually pale Wednesday to my bed to rest
Give Tuesday & Friday oranges at the table
Hear Monday singing in bed
Change Friday’s diaper
Find Thursday half dressed, on the floor, mostly covered in vomit
Take bucket to Wednesday
Bribe/threaten Monday, Tuesday, Friday to stay on the couch while I bathed Thursday
New pj’s for Thursday and her own spot on the couch
Clean up Wednesday’s first round
Take Thursday’s bedding to the washer
Give Monday a bucket
Give Tuesday & Friday dry cereal for breakfast.

And now we’re up to about 8:15 a.m.

: )

…to be continued!

PS. When we were in trial adoption phase, I referred to my kids on the blog by using days of the week code names. I’ll probably give formal introductions soon. In the meantime, it feels a bit nostalgic.

Boys, oldest to youngest: Monday, Wednesday, Friday
Girls, oldest to youngest: Tuesday, Thursday
