Today was one of THOSE days. Yes, one of those days when everything was just about perfect.
I woke up to a quiet house. It was 6:30 (I never sleep that late). There was hot coffee and all the kids were still asleep. It would have been better if Jason was home or the kids slept long enough for me to watch Private Practice, but it was pretty good nonetheless.
Then I got everyone up and ready and there were no fights. We got doughnuts for breakfast and even though they didn't have the kind the kids requested (chocolate twist), everyone was happy and said "Thank You".
We watched Grace's soccer game and then came home with our friend, Halle, in tow.
Once home the kids played nicely together blowing bubbles and riding in the "Golf Jeep" (golf cart).
After lunch I took all the kids (including Halle) to Emma Jo's game. By then the sun was out and Jason was able to meet us there. Henry slept and I was able to watch the whole game. It would have been better if Emma hadn't been hit in the face with the soccer ball, but at least she was fine by the time the game was over.
On the way home from the game we got ice cream (and Starbucks) and brainstormed Halloween costumes for Emma and Halle.
All in all it has been a great day. The kids have been fabulous, I got all the dishes and laundry done and Jason did the grocery shopping! The only thing that would have been better is if Henry would have taken a bottle. I'm really stressed out since I'm going back to work in a week and Henry is now refusing to drink from a bottle. I'm hoping Connie is more patient than I am and that she can get him to take one!
