When was the last time I did a Friday Morning Coffee? I miss it.
It’s funny because today is my first day home alone with all four kids. It’s Veteran’s Day, so the older kids have the day off. And honestly? They’re just good helpers. (mostly) Right now, Noah is playing matchbox cars with Eli on the kitchen floor. They’re just zooming them at each other, back and forth. No talking, just the sound of the cars rolling against the floor.
Anna is in the basement. Probably drawing or writing or playing with toys. She is so busy. She moves from project to project all day. It’s messy but completely interesting how she keeps herself busy.
Clara is on my chest. I’m holding her in my sling. She was crying and fussing and the minute I put her in it, she relaxed and so she lays, against my chest. I can feel her breath against my skin.
This morning I made pancakes. I love that I was able to deliver a special treat to the kids. (don’t you love the way kids love pancakes?!)
I don’t do a lot of blog writing these days but I do a lot of internet reading while nursing. I have found some super cool sites that inspire me to become more organized.
For example, I Heart Organizing. I love this website. She also has Etsy shop where she offers customized shopping lists, chore charts, goal sheets, calendars, etc. I ordered a meal plan/shopping list pdf. I can’t wait to put it to use. (by the way, she has no idea who I am, I wasn’t asked to share this with you, I just found it and thought some of you could benefit from it!)
I have this dream of painting my living room and kitchen walls white. (I have fantastic white trim and a white mantle) This post inspires me to do it.
Since I started writing this post, Eli and Noah have stopped playing cars, Noah is playing Wii. I even played him in bowling and totally won. (I haven’t played in months and months, good to know I am still awesome.) Eli is acting sleepy. We are working to eliminate his morning nap. For the most part, it’s gone but he seems to still want it. He has a hard time making it to the afternoon without it.
When Noah plays Wii, Eli grabs a controller and “plays” with him. They have such a good relationship.
Anyway, I’m off to edit some photos before cleaning up and starting lunch. I hope you all have an amazing weekend. I have three sessions this weekend and tomorrow Clara is six weeks old. Can you believe it?
Happy Weekend, Friends!
