It was a Good Day

 

Not sure what would have happened if I did bong that bottle of wine last night but I’m guessing since I didn’t we were able to get the following done by 2:00 today (Saturday)

  • Spray paint glass vases and the girls swing
  • Decorate a gingerbread train
  • Make paper flowers for our Valentine’s Day mantel
  • Scrounge the entire house for fun objects for our mantel
  • Decorate our mantel
  • Write a post for Damn-it Steve
  • Write a post for New2two
  • Work on real job stuff
  • Make beds (they made theirs and it takes everything I’ve got not to fix it my way)
  • Empty dishwasher and clean kitchen
  • Make 2 meals for 4 people (OK a big breakfast but a simple lunch)
  • Download photographs
  • Update the art section on new2two
  • Respond to a hundred emails, figuratively
  • Took down Christmas lights out front (totally forgot about them)
  • Pack for a play/wine date….well I’m bringing wine don’t know if the other Moms know

It was so wonderful watching the girls play today.  They have been getting along really well and listening.  I guess the freak out last night worked! Or the fact that I actually decided not to scream and just calmly told them to get to their room at the slightest movement towards a fight/chaos/break down.

I really loved seeing L get out her reader book and go through the entire thing.  She asked me to dance with her at the end, there was a Mickey Dance section, and H joined us as well.  The girls then colored at the table while I was emptying the dishwasher and H came up to me with all the crayons put away.  I almost fell over.  She picked them up and put them away and they moved onto their Leapfrog laptops.  H couldn’t’ figure out how to work the email so L helped her.  It was so sweet!  Days like this make days like yesterday disappear.

Update Update Update!  It’s 2:30 and a little monster is out of bed and there is a turd on the floor.  At least she tried to make it to the potty! haha

  1. Ker! How do you make those tissue paper flowers?! I’m looking for some fun Valentine’s Day crafts to do with the little guy I nanny and they’re too cute!

  2. Hi Col! Really simple. Get a few pieces of tissue paper and fold them back and forth acordian style (or like you would make a fan), cut the edges so they are round and not straight. Tie a piece of ribbon/string/twin in the center and then spread them out. After I fold up the paper I cut it in half so they aren’t huge and then you get 2 out of each set of tissue you fold. Make sense?
