Started out lovely! The kids showered me with love...in the form of sleeping in (while they played Hi Ho Cherry-O), homemade cards, hugs & kisses, a smoothie and an uninterrupted shower! Oh yes, plus new hot rollers.
Then we headed to church. Late. My fault of course. But I just had to try out the new curlers! And by some miracle my hair was actually curly. Amazing!
On our way home we stopped at the park and went on an "adventure" (i.e. we walked the path down to Lake Michigan). Due to the 50 degree temperatures and our lack of jackets we didn't stay long.
Joe was gone all afternoon studying (only one more month until Step 1!). Charlotte decided to boycott nap. And that is where we fell apart! She even colored her tongue. Very thorough.
Her solution for marker face? An entire bottle of baby shampoo in the bath tub! After which I was D.O.N.E. Thankfully the better parent came home minutes later and made us all dinner (frozen pizza!) and promised a pre-bedtime family movie night.
At dinner Isaiah prayed, "Please help mommy feel better and help her not be so lazy."
Mom of the Year. Most definitely. I will sit back, put my feet up and sip my Pepsi while I wait for my award to arrive.
