Yesterday we (Jane and I) wore the children out finally. We took them to town and ran errands in the morning and then went to the playground for lunch. A hearty lunch of PB&J was followed up with some heavy duty sliding, running, and jumping. Then we all came home for nap time. Jonathon and James skipped this activity and instead went outside to experiment with the new training wheels on their bikes. Later, we had dinner and they all had a bath.
Usually they go to bed around 7:30pm. James found me a few minutes after 7pm and said, “Can I go to bed now?” Brandon told him he could read books on his bed since it wasn’t quite bedtime yet. Jonathon came into my bedroom at 7:20pm and said, “Mama, can you please put us to bed now? We are very tired.”
Needless to say I was very amused and decided that I should write it down that they actually requested to go to bed since later I would think that I had made it up!
This morning they are all rather perky and energetic. We are planning to head to Rhode Island today for a little relaxing getaway this weekend. Hope you all have a restful time as well.
