This was the most wonderful Sunday.
First of all, we weren’t late for club.
Always a risk when getting 5.5 out the door + finding a taxi.
We decided not to eat out with others after club. We came home to leftovers: chicken n’ dumplings and apple crisp.
Sianna and Selah were down for naps on time.
I washed 2 loads of dishes then completed homeschool work with Schäfer.
Then, he wanted to listen to Winnie the Pooh on audiobook.
I went upstairs to find Hubs already asleep.
I joined him for the very rare, most precious Sunday afternoon nap.
At 3pm Selah promptly proclaimed “Mommy! Mommy!”
After snack time, Hubs took all three kids to the basement to install a horn on our electric motorcycle. Needless to say, the horn did not get installed. While at home, I tackled laundry, more dishes, putting away clean clothes, etc. It was so amazing not to get interrupted.
Of course, Hubs got nothing done. So he brought the kids home then went back to the basement to install the horn. The girls were wired, Schäfer was wired, and I was trying to do dishes while meeting everyone’s needs: snacks!
charge the iPod!
more painting paper!
Eventually the dishes were done.
This evening I was invited to a ladies Christmas gathering. The kind of event with fine desserts and presents to be stolen.
I love the hostess. I love the ladies.
But I turn into a pumpkin at 7:30pm thanks to baby #4. By 8pm, I start imagining ways to lay down without others noticing.
So I stayed home and that was wonderful.
The kids went to bed without a peep. Smiles on their faces and full bellies.
Hubs has planned some extravagant birthday plans for me tomorrow. I have no clue what they are. It seems to strange to leave the kids almost all day. Good, but strange.
This evening, I tried to get as much done as possible so that I can enjoy tomorrow. Well, I had great plans to get more done, but by 8pm I was ready to make my way to Dreamland.
