The ship is quiet captian. Yeah that is because all the small yelling Things went to sleep. Your husband is out and you are home to watch over the precious laptop.
Today’s events were as follows:
Jd wake up time 10:30am —awoken by errie dream of ex-boyfriend that looked like Will Ferrell from the nose down. So when I watched yet another preview of the movie RICKY BOBBY I was flooded with memories of this one guy in Junior College. I later found that he may have been a sexual preditor after we dated. Funny I didn’t find him very handsy with me. Then again those padded bras of the day didn’t assist in any decency I may have been loosing and not knowing it.
Moving on to eating breakfast. Coco puffs. They are good and low in nutrition. Chased it down with a prenatal vitamin.
Kissed my Band.Showered with Thing 2. Band went for his nap and I put the kids down for theirs.
Tried to start "the way we were" with Barbra Stri– something (after several attempts at spelling that correctly I’m moving on) and Robert Redford. I didn’t make it past the credits when I saw her saying something about the war in frount of a crowd of people & I thought about the news and turned it to CNN or some Newsy channel.
Kids woke up from their naps. Fed the sweetest children in the world* and then went to see the movie "CARS". This was a big step to sit in a theater with both children. Thing 1 hated the movie theater cause of the loudness about two or three months ago.Thing 2 loves movies and gives her occasional UH-OH when something falls or wrong. This time they both sat quietly for almost 3/4s of the movie. Then the bordom factor caught my two little ones. And Thing 1 fell in love with the lights in the isle. I was bored and we checked out. We only got to the part were he fixes some of the road real nice for the little town.
I called it a success.
The rest of the evening falls into the category of schedule and routine. Feed, read, brush, pray, and bed.
Thing 1 is learning to pray. OH he is so cute trying to say what Mommy says. The words you can barely make out, but he is attempting it. We have never been so diligent in saying family prayers until he started saying them. It is just so cute. He really is a big hearted boy. We are trying to alternate turns in our tiny family but it is so tempting to just have him say it everytime.
* My Thing 1 who is going through the age that they preface with the word "terrible" & has been an absolute angel for me lately. It is almost getting to the point of scarry. He listens and obeys. He is helpful and is doing a fenominal job at potty training. His sleeping at night has gotten sooo much better. I am pretty sure this is a fluke stage and he will be back to pushing every limit possible, but for today and all the days of this week I have been so greatful. His behavior could have me on cloud nine for at least another week even if it stopped and he pulls an all nighter tonight. It is like he knows there is something going on with his mommy so he is being extra gentle.
