Mommy and Me Monday

Mommy and Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?
Hosted by Krystyn


Yesterday was a really relaxed day over here. Scott had to work a mandatory overtime shift at Typhoon Lagoon (I should really have him a write a post about his experience, he may need therapy) and I was wishing that I hadn't mixed wine and vodka the night before. The weather seemed to be feeling the same way and it pretty much rained on and off all afternoon.

The first of the three storms woke Jill up so we got to spend a good amount of the afternoon together. Aaron actually slept until almost 4 o'clock, so Jill and I had a few hours together. Since the weather was so blah and she was still somewhat sleepy we just hung out in her bean bag chair and watched Aladdin. Apparently that was all she needed because she was ready to go go go after that.


When it gets to be almost 4 o'clock Jill immediately becomes bored with me and decides to wake up her brother. Always an awesome move. I thought Skyping with Auntie Cathy would put him in a better mood, not so much. Instead, he just sat with his eyes pinched shut and said "uh-uh". Fabulous. Thankfully towards the end of the call he decided to wake up and we could go on our merry little way.

Around this time the second storm was coming through so coloring it was. Side note, Jill may or may not have colored all over one of the chairs when I wasn't looking. Clearly red is a better color than natural. Minus that we had a great time coloring, we always do. I dug out some of their coloring books too which is always a nice alternative to plain white paper.


So even though it rained all day and maybe that morning I was questioning the beverages from the night before and the fact that yogurt seemed to make perfect sense for breakfast, it turned out to be a great day with my kiddos.

Glad you were able to enjoy a nice day indoors with the kiddos. We also have lots of "enhanced with crayons" furniture as well. Cute pics as always!
