Whew! This word sums up every time I am on my own with the boys. It’s just… whew! We are going on day 4 of 5, and there have been adventures and roller coaster ups and downs… but one thing that we did not let get us down was the weather. It has rained or drizzled or misted nearly all day every day for the past three, but we are looking at some really beautiful warm sunny days ahead. Which means YES to getting the ever-loving darned garden fence built! It will be done. It will be done.
We went out to eat a couple of times, left with two out of three kids screaming once (and probably not the two you would guess), braved the opening day of the Tower Grove Farmer’s Market in the rain and flood, woke up at 5 am every day (no joke. Please. This is no laughing matter), cleaned and organized and did laundry (alright, I did those things while the kids messed up and broke some shit… sorry for offending your delicate ears), built forts, played in puddles at the playground in bare feet before getting nearly drenched on our walk back, played “Professor Experiments” in the bathtub, made yummy food, ate pancakes for dinner… and screamed and yelled a couple of times.. after which Milo walked up to me, rubbed my back, and said, “Mama, what can I do to help?” Yes, I am the adult. Oh! And after the boys went to bed, I stayed up late working on a little surprise for Andrew when he gets home. If you’re curious, check back tomorrow! Happy Monday.
