I walked into the kitchen this evening to see papers all over the kitchen table. Immediately all three kids screamed, "GET OUT MOM! CLOSE YOUR EYES!" As soon as I saw the mess, I realized that I had walked in on them putting together my Mother's Day surprise. I closed my eyes, walked out, and made myself busy by cleaning up all the toys the kids had left out. In the process I grabbed a few pieces of garbage and tried to sneakily put them into the kitchen trash can. Jude spotted me and yelled, "Quit coming in here, Mom - because we're not doing ANYTHING!"
As the kids gathered for prayers Maddie said, "We're all done in the kitchen, Mom. We weren't doing anything at all - just sitting around and telling jokes and funny stories."
I gave her the sad face and said, "What? You don't think I like jokes and funny stories?"
She got a little nervous and said, "Oh, I just totally forgot. Actually we were all just sitting at the kitchen table taking little naps, right Dad? It was just really boring."
Tomorrow is going to be awesome.
BDEM: Dinner picnic at the park. Sammies, seven-layer bean dip, blueberries and Otter Pops. Does it get any better than that?!
Water: 20 oz - I'll be glad when June comes and I can stop blogging about my water failures.
