Today was a really nice day.
I went to the tanning bed first thing this morning. Mike calls this my therapy. He says I am in a much better mood when I am going. I know this is true because I feel better!
The monkeys are totally addicted to play dough! I am trying to think of what Levi calls it but at the moment I can't remember. First thing in the morning, before breakfast, they are asking for it. I make them wait till after we eat. That stuff makes some more mess! Then they will play with it until lunch. After lunch we go outside! I love going out side and they do also. Tonight when bed time rolled around they crawled in bed and were asleep in no time.
Back to the play dough. They will play with it for 3 or 4 hours at a time. Well this stuff is not made to be out for that long. It starts getting hard and they can't do anything with it. So I got on line today and for a recipe for it. I made it for Emily & Jonathan years and years ago and they loved it. But I don't have any cream of tarter. So tomorrow I am going to get some of that and see if I can find them some cheap rolling pins. They have mine right now and I only have 2 ad they are wood. Not a good idea.
Mike was cutting a tree down yesterday afternoon. Before he went out he told them they could go to Abbie's room and look out the window and watch him. This was the first mistake!!!! I went to check on them and they had tore down Abbie's blind. So I am trying to fix the blind and I hear the boys talking in Abbie's room. They are discussing tossing everything out of Abbie's toy box. I yelled in there for them not to do that or they would get in trouble! The response I got tells you just how much they are scared of me telling them they are going to get in trouble... I think Andy said this to Levi, but I am not 100% sure. "HERE WE GO AGAIN." From a 3 year old! Like I am boring them by making them mind or trying to. Andy's normal response is "What ever". I am trying to tell him that this is not nice, I guess I am going to have to add to my not nice list!
Abbie is doing really good going to the potty. She wears her panties all the time when we are at home. Levi decided this afternoon that he wanted to use the potty and he did good. He has been wearing a pull up but tomorrow he wants to ware his underwear. Now I just have to get Andy to doing it!
I have not told the monkeys but I think we are going to go to the play ground in Bowdon tomorrow. They will be thrilled! And Mike will be able to get some sleep when he gets home. It should work out good.
Well I am going to go check on the monkeys and then I am going to see if I can go to sleep.
