Today, my sweet boy got stabbed in the eye with a pencil. After many tears, prayers and a trip to the Eye Specialist, he's doing GREAT! Still a little red, but considering what happened, it's a miracle he's okay! He was an absolute doll when I asked if I could take a picture of his eye for my picture of the day. He melts my heart and these big beautiful blue eyes of his work to his advantage!
"Let's go. We gotta go. Come on, we've got to go right now!" Those were the words I said the most today! It started with getting up early so I could work in my daughters class room. Then it was a rush to pick up the other kids, get home and eat lunch in 45minutes before I had to take my boy to Preschool. While he was at Preschool, I took the other two and went to the gym. Then I ran home, showered and left again to go get my boy from Preschool and head over to Up With Kids. After Up With Kids, I ran to the grocery store (with three kids mind you) and then picked up a pizza.
It was a go, go, go day!
I thought this would be the picture of the day after all the going I did, until this...
She got to do what I felt like doing... zonk on the couch.
I desperately miss the days of nap time! I wish I still had that 2 hour break during the day. By Sunday night, I just want a little peace and quiet, to relax a little in preparation for the week ahead. So for this reason, we have adopted Sunday Night Movies. I pop popcorn, the kids pick a movie and we all kick back and relax. I do enjoy the extra cuddle time with the kids.
First, this morning I realized the battery in my camera was dead. Lesson 1: don't leave your camera on all day! So, I put it in the charger and left the house. When I got home, late at night, I found this in my mail. My tutorial on how to make vintage rosettes! YES, I've wanted to know how and now I do. Lesson 2: Making Rosettes. I'm sure there will be a post later on about these.
I'm having a hard time getting back into the swing of things, back to work and school. It was more fun when our whole family was together for the long Christmas and New Years weekends. Summer, where are you?
Today at lunch, the kids sat around the table and my sweet boy said the blessing on the food. His prayer was sweet, but what was even sweeter to me was when I open one eye to peek on him, I saw this... his little hands and his new cherished item. It hasn't been removed since church yesterday. Lucky for me, my camera was close and in with no disrespect to his prayer, I snapped a few. After, he heard the clicks, I was scolded, "Mom!!! Fold your arms!" I smiled!
With church now at 1:00pm, I had time to throw a loaf of banana bread in the oven before we left. It came out just before leaving, so when we came home... we inhaled it! It didn't last long. WOW an ENTIRE LOAF, GONE! I'm not so sure I like the 1:00pm hour. It makes it hard to squeeze in lunch and get ready. Often we leave for church having only had breakfast. Looks like I'll need to keep up the banana bread thing, so we have something to eat when we get home. :)
