Last night I came home and thought, “Ahhh….no bags to pack for tomorrow, no laundry that has to be ready, no outfits to pick out. Day one of Spring Break. What will we do? Where will we go? Maybe to the Children’s Museum, maybe the Shedd, maybe a shopping trip to the mall. Oh my choices are endless!
I fell asleep in the recliner last night with dreams of spring break excursions dancing in my head.
2:30am: Awake from my slumber in the cushy recliner thinking, “It’s OK to watch a movie, I don’t have to work tomorrow!”
3:30am I think I fell asleep.
7:30am Wake up to find my three year old lying next to me. ” What is he dreaming? Could it be of the excitement of the day to come?” He looks so darn cute in his little teddy bear pajamas.
8:00am Get the 18 month old who is awake. Change and dress him. The Physical Therapist will be here at 8:30. So serve up a bowl full of cheerios and a banana. Yummy! “Eat up little guy! We have a big day!”
8:30am Three year old gets up. Serve up a sippy of milk and pull up some Mickey Mouse Club on the tele. Need a diversion for when the therapist is here.
8:45am Physical therapy ensues. “Please excuse my pajamas. I haven’t had a chance to change yet.”
10:00am Three year old is hungry. Change him…”keep my jammies on mommy.”
11:00am 18 month goes down for a nap. Three year old wants to play a game. Switch some loads of laundry. “I’ll shower and change when we are finished. Then we will begin our spring break adventure. Where should we go?”
11:30am 18 month old awakens. Wants to nap in my arms in the recliner. ” Oh, my little baby. You miss mommy during the day, don’t you?” Three year old demands “On Demand”. The movie “Frozen” is ordered and three year old wants a picnic in mommy’s bed of string cheese and pretzels. “Do you want to change out of your jammies?”
12:30pm 18 month old wakes up. Serve up some reheated pizza and strawberries. Make some much needed telephone calls, catch up on emails. Fold laundry and put away. Now is a good time to pull out boys clothes that are too small.
1:00pm Eat some pizza. I’ll shower and change when the laundry is finished. I need to go to the grocery store.
2:00pm Husband has a flat tire. Oh No! He will get it fixed and be home around 4pm. I will go to the grocery store when he gets home. It is too hard with both boys in the store.
2:30pm Look some dresses up online for upcoming gala. Enter in monopoly codes at JewelOsco.com. Watch boys play with each other. “They are so sweet together.”
2:45pm Pull three year old off of his brother. “No, you cannot put a blanket over his head and jump on his back! Time out!”
3:00pm Eat a piece of awesome caramel cake. I love Spring Break!
4:00pm Daddy is home! I’ll get dressed and go to the grocery store after you all eat dinner.
OK, tomorrow our adventures begin! I hope.
