I am not sure where our week is going because I am having a hard time believing that it is already Wednesday morning.  Last week's attempt at getting back to a routine was pretty laughable since I started the laundry on Wednesday and didn't finish all of the folding until Monday morning.  I am going to try to be better about that this week and today's goal is to have all the laundry washed and put away before I climb into bed.  I have been able to get back into my routine of getting up early, having my coffee and quiet time and a little bit of computer time before the rest of the house wakes up.  

I am feeling like there isn't much to blog about these days, but the boys have been making us laugh a lot, so I thought I could share some stories:
  • Yesterday, William was showing me his dinosaur and I asked him if he liked his dinosaur and he responded by saying, "yeah! he's a good guy!"
  • I think I have mentioned their play acting before, but they seriously crack me up.  First of all, they are always LOUD, but many times a day, I hear them yelling to each other "dad, come on...mom, let's go..." and now they have also added an Alex to the mix.  I have absolutely no idea who Alex is, but they like to pretend play with him.  I also often hear, "son, I said come on" (in a rather stern voice--I think they may be mimicking one of us!)
  • They seriously love to be read too, I think that if we would, they would sit for the majority of the day just listening to books.  Sometimes, I have them just sit and "read" the books to themselves and I am always amazed at how well they know the stories and I just love to hear their sweet giggles.
  • They are completely silly these days.  Everything is a cause for being silly and if one of them does something, the other one immediately starts in.  I am trying to enjoy it and not get frustrated by it.
Today, I am getting my hair trimmed and I think that we are going to make a trip to the library to get some new books for the boys and also pick up a book I requested called Scream Free Parenting.  I don't feel like I scream per se, but I definitely get very frustrated with them way too often and am feeling in desperate need of some help in knowing what to do!  I will have to let you know if it gives me any good ideas.

I have managed to finish up a couple of pages in the last few days:

I feel the same way about my routine. I'm really struggling with having some self-discipline! I enjoyed the cute stories...I can't wait to get in on the silliness!

Well, I could have just sent you my copy of Scream Free Parenting since I'm getting so much good use out of it. (Lots of sarcasm here)
