There are days and then there are days….
“I’m hungry” – Breakfast is so fresh the bowls are still on the table.
“We just ate. Go play please.”
“Ok. Go downstairs and play. I’ll tell you when lunch is ready.” – It’s 10 am.
I send them all over the gate and begin cleaning up the kithchen.
“Ok. I’ll make lunch. I’ll tell you when it’s ready” – It’s 10:01
They scurry back down the stairs. I mindlessly open the fridge, and there it is in all it’s glorious splendor. A forgotten bottle of Dr. Pepper. Hallelujah. **Choir angels sing** I pour a glass off this fabulous sanity saver.
I finally give in and start making lunch. – It’s 11 am. Oh well. I pull out a bowl of chilli and start heating it. I realize this will only please about 20% of my kids. (There are six here during the day.) Back to the fridge where I find some spaghetti, maccaroni and cheese, and a burrito.
I’m thinking leftover day and an early naptime!
