back to the ol' grind

and we were a bit rusty at it...

yep. 30 minutes late for Brig's preK class.

Andrew didn't set the alarm for me(he says he didn't know there was school today) and my other high pitched alarm slept in.

Actually she always does. Over the 2 1/2 week break we were all spoiled (cept the hubby who has to be at work at 7:30. YUCK.) Brigham quietly got himself up and out to the couch for cartoons around 8:30am and my high pitched , very repatitous alarm clock woke me reguarly between 9am and 9:30am.

What a luxery! and I totally know that I am spoiled.. and that God definately gave me the perfect children. Ones who do NOT wake with loads of energy before the sun peaks.

I know that this pattern will not last forever, but for now I am loving it.

I got a little sloppy last semester with the nap schedule, and they ended up overlapping = one kid was always awake = I never got my nap.. LOL.
So we're starting the new year, with them both going down at the same time. I know I am still incredibly blessed that they both take a good 2 hour nap.

So Brig starts gymnastics lessons tonight. He is taking them again with his best friend Hannah. Should be interesting, last year we had the babies with us, and they started out sitting well, in their carriers, then moved to crawling(but we could still keep them on our laps), then Carter started walking and did not want to sit still, and by the middle of March, Tatum had started to become more interested in 'getting away' then sitting still.
They have an upstairs viewing area with a bunch of toys, so hopefully the kids will be entertained long enough.
I am really hoping that Brigham keeps interest in his class. He for sure needs to get all his energy out to make for a calmer evening for all of us =)

Well, I am off to make a meat loaf for dinner, and another one for my brother.. its his bday today, and for a guy who doen's need anything... I say food is the best thing for a bachelor.. LOL !

still working on getting pics edited to post here, and then I got sucked in by Facebook and all the 'pictures from the past' , that people are posting, so I figured, I'd go thru some of my 'oldies but goodies'
.. all you FB friends better watch out... those memories will be brought back in a flash, as soon as I can get them all scanned in!

you have been warned.. LOL !

Wow, I'm envious of your late risers. I DO have the kid who wakes up at 6:30 raring to go. We generally put him back to bed though and don't let him get back up until at least 7. I was up and down with them both this morning, so Dave let me sleep in until 8:30. :-)

Hey there... Just a few things to share... Sorry you were late to B's class. That is a bummer. But, as a momma of three little ones, take it from me, from now on you will ALWAYS be late... :-) We don't do too, too bad, but it seems I'm always about five minutes behind these days! Also, enjoy the sleep now - there will be a short time after your precious one's birth where you'll long for a stretch of just a few hours! :-) And lastly... Both your kids still nap? Even B? You are so lucky! What time do your kids go to bed? Seriously? O&C don't really nap any more but have rest times in their rooms during the afternoon... But they are both in bed by 7:30 or 8. If they do nap, they usually stay up later. Ugh. Hugs to you!
