This morning I was privileged to sleep until my alarm went off at 5:15. I believe at some point in the night I turned T's monitor off so I didn't hear his fussing. He was obviously fine because I had to wake him up to eat when my alarm went off. I fed T, ate some cereal, and was off to meet mom at 5:45.
When I got back around 7, the kids were still asleep so I laid down for a few minutes.
Soon everyone was up and wide open. Ella Kate had her usual yogurt breakfast while Jake asked for sausage. I whipped him some right up and then he informed me that I did not know how to cook sausage. Well, duh. I think it smells horrid and have not touched it since pregnancy #1 (AKA vomit fest). He lost his breakfast appetite after that.
The rest of the day is as uneventful as it gets. It was an all day spent at home, feed T every 3 hours, T fusses, T naps, kids argue, kids watch tv kind of day. You get the picture.
They did pull out the play doh and play for a loooong time. They created for a couple of hours at least. We had gotten a new bucket of colors and a burger/fry maker for Christmas and they really put it to use.
As the day wore on, it got increasingly hotter in our house. We have been told that our a/c unit is just not big enough for the house combined with these awful high temps. It was in the 90s today and I swear it was at least 85 in our house. For us, that is HOT.
I heated up the house a little more with the oven (cooking for this week is O-VER) and made us some chicken alfredo pasta. I like that kind of stuff....my family, not-so-much. They deal with it every now and then for my sake.
After dinner, I decided to give T a bath. He loves bathtime. Neither of the other 2 loved it like him. I always heard people say that bathtime was their kids favorite time of the day. Not ours. Ours cried most of the time. T has never cried in the tub.
From the day he came home, water quieted him down right away. It's our go-to if he is fussy-out-of-control. He sat in the shallow tub with cool water and splashed away.
Michael worked in the garage all evening on Jake's four-wheeler. Jake went in and out, staying out as long as he could before he was just too hot. EK stayed in and watched tv all afternoon/evening. She's just not into sweating. :)
It was finally bedtime for T and we were relieved from his fussiness - he has his days and this was one of them. He went down around 8:30. I had tons of consignment sale business to work on (coming up soon!!) so I worked on that while the kids and Michael hung out in the den.
See - told ya - we won the uneventful day award for this one. It's nice to have those sometimes though. :)
