Today was not so nice as yesterday. This morning, The Husband had to get up early and go to work. I got up and putzed around till I noticed it was 9am...(Sunday School starts at 9:30!). I told the kids to get dressed and The Boy, who had been up reading since 7:30am, proceeded to have a full blown melt-down over the fact that he hadn't eaten breakfast yet (which, incidentally, somehow translates into MY fault...) and The Girl has a fit after asking me to do her hair because she does not like what I've done (then why ask?!). I manage to get out of the house and drop the kids at Sunday School. All is peaceful for a short while. The Husband had planned on doing the grocery shopping WITH the two kids so I would not have to as a gift for Mother's Day. I realize what I really want is new cordless phones for the house so I tell him I will go along with him
I went to the grocery alone after dropping everyone off at home. It was peaceful and enjoyable (because it was childless). Then, we went for a nice, 5+ mile bike ride. The Boy was extremely well behaved on the ride and The Girl was not bad either.
Hope all of you had a happy mother's day!
