Today was an ok day. In fact it was kinda good. The boys had a good sleep despite the fall that T had out of bed around 11pm.... he didn't remember it.
I had an ok day at work... a bit of chaos but that is everyday at work so no biggie there...
When I finished work and went to get the boys it was pouring... I decided that it would be pizza night.
Cy was a bit crazy when I picked him up. Whiney and lying on the floor. What I wouldn't give to have no whiney kids!
T fell asleep in the car on the way home.. Cy wanted to play in the rain. After I put him in his rain gear (that I left at home this morning, shit) he played with the (river) that flows down our road every time it rains. There are no gutters and there are no proper sidewalks.
He really had fun in the rain splashing and kicking the water. One of our yellow flowers(daffodil but not daffodil) has opened up! Yay!
T woke up and whiney ensued( again what I wouldn't give for none of that) I gave him pizza and he seemed to be appeased.
Then Q came home and he was a grump! Hello go to bed when your wife tells you to so you are not so freaking tired at the end of the day. The tv pauses but the kids and wifey do not!
Q was just reading this over my shoulder so I put that in for him :)
After dinner we played Hoot owl Hoot and we won this time! The boys really enjoyed playing and we need to do it more often.
I am addicted to cooking dinner at night or on the weekends. I had the chimichangas cooking, the rest of the morning pancake mix being cooked at the same time. Now I had 2 chimichanga dinners, 14 pancakes for school mornings. Then tonight I cooked my dinner for tomorrow already! Pasta Salad... my favorite.
My goal is to do everything right up until cooking that I can do the night before or on the weekend. This plan really lowers my stress at dinner time and allows me to play with the boys after being at work and missing them all day!
This past weekend was beautiful! We both both days outside in the garden, planting and the boys spent it playing with their water guns in the pool.
Yesterday the boys and I headed to the river after work. We spent a while just finding cool rocks and trying to skip them. Cy is getting the hang of it!
Then we came home to a mostly made dinner, the boys colored while I did a clean up.
A great start to the week.
My weekly dinner plan: P.S I started making dinner at night after the boys go to bed, right up until I cook it... the next day its so easy to finish dinner, no worry of what we are having.... no spending time in the kitchen when I could be in the sun with the boys :) My new plan rocks!
THIS IS A DINNER PLAN FOR YOU HEATHER!
