This season is busy! Tuesday was a recovery day....recovering from Monday. The kids and I spent the day lounging around at my parents place and when Dave was finished work he came over too. We stayed for dinner and hung out till it was the kids bed times. We have found that if Kaitlyn does not have her nap she goes to bed a few hour earlier than she would otherwise....around 9. So we are trying to keep her as stimulated as possible and create a new routine....of sorts. We are now 4 days into this and so far it is going all right, we had one day that she got up at 4 to play babies and read books, but other than that it has been good.
I must learn that I just cannot jam pack my days with too many activities, we just cannot afford to take too many recovery days, sets us back!
We baked hot cocoa cookies, mmmmmm.
Then Phil and Em came over so mom could prep for Phil's day and I could have a bath, all by myself, yipee! I set the kids up to make puppets and it looked like so much fun I got in on it too.
Time for the show.
After the show I got the bath, it was soooo nice!
Happy Birthday Phil!
It was also Dave's work dinner so we left the kids at my parents, for 3 1/2 hours, the longest we have ever been away from them! And they were fine, never even missed us! Poor Dave has come down with a cold, doesn't he look happy about it?!
And every contractor got a gift...a shuffle.
Sweet, I think, Dave already has a mini and for Christmas I got him a......ooo, shhh, he might read this, never mind, that will have to wait.
Anyway, maybe he will give the shuffle to me, not that I have any use for it. I just don't really listen to music anymore. Since having kids my ears are tuned in to them and when I do have a quiet moment I use it to think or daydream.
I figure that maybe in the summer while out for walks I might use it, but then again I like to soak up the sound around me and.....dream up ideas for new projects.
When do you listen to music?
Do you all have time and when and how do you fit it in around kids and thinking(those of you that have em)?
Those if you who don't have kids I know how you do it....I did before I had kids too. ;)
