A Home Day

Fridays are usually our lazy days at home. The last couple of weeks though we've had things to do on Friday so we haven't had our usual lazy home day. Today however it was much needed and completely enjoyed. The girls and I had not had such a stellar evening yesterday.  The kind where you are left feeling that you have just lost the right to refer to yourself as a kind parenting parent.  And our crummy evening carried through the night too. Emma was up bunches during the night, and up for the day starting at 4:45am, which is way too early for this mama.  She had taken her diaper off last night, wet her crib and therefor her special blanket was in the wash.  We think that not having special blanket is part of the reason why she had such a crummy night sleep last night. David brought her into our bed this morning with the hope that she would snuggle with us and fall back to sleep.  Unfortunately, that did not happen.  And it was then that I knew it would take everything I had to keep her from falling asleep at 10:00am (I was only kinda successful. She had briefly fallen asleep on the couch but woke up when I arrived with the popcorn).  So today, a very mellow day was in order, and I am happy to report we achieved our goal and easily got back to our usual way of doing things.

It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown!

I leave for a moment to go make popcorn and I return to see this:

Every Friday is pizza night. 
Tonight though we decided to make it pizza and a movie night.

Pizza must be the path to enlightenment.  

It was indeed a lovely, much needed day. 
The girls are now in bed, and there is a peace in the house that only comes with the addition of two sleeping babes. 
Have a wonderful night, friends. 
We'll see you tomorrow. 


  1. We all have those days. We say sorry to our kids and we try again, harder. And we LOVE pizza. That helps, as does a spoon full of sugar! Was that Mary P for movie night?

  2. Thanks, friend! I really appreciate your empathy and kind words. Pizza does indeed help and so does Mary Poppins! :)
