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:
