Oh and what a day it was! I spent NO time in bed... but I did spend 'some' time on the couch. *grin* Paul came home Monday evening to feed the kids and get them ready for bed and then he headed back to work for the evening... er... whole night. He finally made it home at 7:30am. At which time I had been up for 2 1/2 hours. Gavin woke up extra early because he thought he heard dinosaurs (big thunderstorm). We laid on the couch and ate our berries, granola & coconut milk & drank our orange juice and minerals. It was very nice to spend some extra time with Gavin. Once Paul came home and went to bed, the boys all got up and we started our morning... slow style. My mom came over so I could go to my peri (fetal specialist) appointment and then my chiropractor. So I was gone ALL DAY. Once I got home I did lay on the couch for a quite a while until it was time for DINNER. I had this bright idea that I would have the boys make dinner with my direction while I was sitting in the kitchen with them. WELL... dinner did get made, it was good and no one was hurt. BUT... the kitchen was a complete disaster, Ozzie dumped half a bottle of turmeric into the spinach, red lentil and bean soup, I became quite stressed at the complete chaos in the kitchen and my inability to just get up and help them. We'll need a few more cooking lessons before this is a reliable source of dinner. Ha! I do love the boys helping in the kitchen... but I'm normally standing there guiding them, showing them and having fun. This was NOT fun. But we did have a nice meal to eat... and as you all know i'm sure... hungry children are not very fun. So after dinner I DID lay on the couch while Paul played with them a little and then put them all to bed. He also cleaned up the kitchen most of the way... it was a HUGE mess.
So day one not a huge disaster but we'll be trying for some better days for sure. *grin*
