Nothing To Do ... How Wonderful!

It's Thursday morning (it feels like it really should be Friday) and the kids are still sleeping.

Ben slept like a big baby bear in the middle of winter last night ... this is a good thing!! Maggie didn't sleep at all last night. I finally took her downstairs to the kitchen at 5 and asked her what she wanted. She signed 'thirsty'. So I filled her pink little sippy cup with some cold water and she sipped away. Then, she pushed the cup away. I asked her what she wanted to do. She pointed upstairs and signed "Sleepy". I propped her on my shoulder and headed back upstairs, counting the stairs as we went (a Maggie tradition). I put her down with her pink little blankie and a sorry-looking Tigger (that I should wash today). Finally, all was quiet for the next couple of hours so we could sleep :)

As for today, I'm excited to announce that I have absolutely NO appointments scheduled (pronounced "ssssshhhhhed-huled" with a South African accent). Sometimes all these appointments drive me silly, because I would just like one day to myself and my kids. No cleaning, no dressing, no getting ready. We can just laze about. We will do this today! For sure!!

Maggie is waking up. So I'd better jump into action. And Ben has been kicking in his crib for about five minutes. Let me put them in the car and go to the Drive-Thru Starbucks :) Whoever thought of that idea was a genius!! They get a thumbs-up from every mom in this neighborhood ... without a doubt! Have a wonderful day everybody ... don't forget to have your cozy cup of coffee :)
