did this a while back and I always thought it would be a fun idea. I woke up Tuesday and thought...that would be a fun thing to do today, because we don't have too many plans....our day sure got busier than I thought.
Rhett is the leader of our mornings. He is a creature of habit. Mornings start with a yogurt, tv, then breakfast...now, we begin a Tuesday in the life of us with yogurt on the family room floor.
Next for this creature of habit...his shows. His only tv
time is in the morning. We can be heard saying, "Mezmur
, stop watching tv
." She loves her shows too....it is hard to shelter the second child from tv
when the first child is a morning tv
Breakfast today is a toaster waffle with whipped cream and berries...oh, and a few Joe's O's
were given out too...to a baby girl.
Then, while we clean up and I get Mez
down for her nap Rhett is usually here with his guitar.
Usually when Mez
is asleep we try to do a "big brother" thing together. Today Rhett is picking mint for a treat we are going to make...
...cantaloupe, mint, honey, and yogurt popsicles
Rhett got a little closer to his third surprise with his Summer Reading.
Now that Mez
is awake it is time for our first outing...taking Soft McSoft
to get her sutures out.
After we drop Soft off at home we make a stop at Bolt
to drop off this Trapeze Sundress
for a sample for the store. I'll be teaching this class in August!
Now, home for lunch! Mez
is eating carrots, pasta, and cantaloupe. Rhett eats cheesy chips and I eat my new favorite lunch...a tomato paste, mozzarella, and Parmesan quasadilla
...oh, so delicious.
Nap time...I'm working on a Trapeze Dress for myself with a few modifications.
In order to give my brain and body a little rest I sat down to watch an episode
and work on a couple rows of my sweater. No, I can't just sit and do nothing...
Dinner was made before the kids woke up, because I knew we were going to have a busy afternoon. Black beans, chicken, zucchini from the garden put together in a Mexican casserole.
The usual scene when I have to wake up Rhett.
Rhett was excited to taste our treat after his nap...here is what he thought. Not a hit.
The usual scene when Mama comes in after nap.
Off to the park to play in the water with some of our favorite people.
Back at home...this scene was right after I heard Rhett say, "No! Snot Monster! You are going to get snot on me." Oh, sibling woes...
After dinner, after daddy comes home, and after the chaos of getting ready to go...we go to swimming lessons. Oh, who knew zucchini from the garden would taste so good. Rhett doesn't usually eat zucchini, but from the garden?...he clears his plate. Mez
cheers on her brother from Daddy's lap.
Rhett loves his swimming lessons!
Home from swimming with one down...
Don't let this photo fool you. She woke up for another hour and a half after this sweet picture.
Rhett and I read chapters 5 and 6 from My Father's Dragon.
It's 9:00. Time for mom and dad to have a glass of wine and watch our show
to unwind after a very busy day.
Not shown...diapers were changed, a bath was given, tantrums were had, cats were fed, dishes were done, bottles were given...
