Well, yesterday was nice...

Yesterday was lovely. Always nice to celebrate my husband...he's such a good daddy.
It's hard to believe he was only 19 when he became one... So, yesterday was spent playing FIFA on wii, and watching sports....
(boys really just get bigger, they don't change that much)
eating BBQ chicken, homemade potato salad, corn on the cob and sugar cream pie (yum)...
and giving little gifts of our love...

the boys and I made this super simple little album for his desk at work.
(we make one every year, next year he's getting a little basket for all his mini-albums)
Just had the boys list some things they love about their dad...
And I did a "top 10" with photos....
Then the boys wrote love notes on the back of each page....super simple, but sweet. That's how we roll...

So it's definitely Monday now, and I'd already like a do-over (please)...
this day has started off a little rough...(quite possibly the understatement of the day)
one boy is in time-out for an unspecified amount of time.
one is hovering a fine line and might find himself there shortly...
and one has a tonsil the size of a ping pong ball (no seriously, it's GROSS)
so I'm just sitting here waiting for the doctors office to call me back...
yelling "Not yet!" in reply to the constant "Can I come out now???" line of questioning coming from the other room....
hope your Monday is off to a better start.

eta: It's amazing what a little food and outdoor play will do to make everyone happier. whew.
The littles are out playing with the neighbor kids...
Jack has a dr appt tomorrow,
and things are looking bright.
Mondays...whew.

oh my *e*...
I'm a full on social services referral these days, cut yourself a little slack! You rock as a boylie Momma-you do!

How about the memory of pierced ears? AND that Doodle STILL has the unicorn/rainbow gift box that I made you buy to calm ME down after the fact?!!
How about the memory of chicken pox...all over the 'Ville...all over the Harrison Kinder...almost all over the Colin?!
How about the memory of the FIRST EVER midnight latte run?
Or seafood and movies with the Gab?!
Those were all Mondays (if my memory serves...)and they were definitely nice!
