Here's what we've been up to today!
7:00am---everyone awake. The girls wake up between 6:30-7:30 am....most days before 7 though unfortunately.
Raya usually wakes up saying "i'm hungry"....go figure....so breakfast is always first on the to-do list!
|Looks like a peaceful place for a relaxing breakfast doesn't it? Yeah, imagine two girls pounding on the table demanding waffles and "dip dip" and milk.....I usually eat standing up :-P|
|Whenever I go back to working outside the home I will definitely miss having an hour every morning to relax on the couch and play on the internet haha...I like a nicce leisurely morning ;-)|
|During this time the girls typically play really nicely together.|
|They do tend to destroy the house during this time, but I don't care! No blood, no sirens, no worries from me ;-)|
The girls were upstairs during this time---they were quiet so I didn't care what they were doing lol. But when I came upstairs I realized Brielle was having fun throwing toys over the banister....naughty naughty
|Then the little s tinker threw a fit because she couldn't reach the toys that *she* threw down the stairs!|
While Raya was getting dressed Brielle made it her mission to destroy as much of the bedroom as she could :-P
|She started by messing up the dollhouse|
|Then she tried to pick out her own clothes....unfortunately she was pulling out Raya's stuff :-P|
|We're all dressed! And Raya's room is officially destroyed haha. I'm not sure if it'll be better or worse when Brielle moves in....less floor space to make a mess with another bed in there, but I'm thinking I will have to watch my step still!|
|Then after snack we got ready for swimming lessons! (Raya wanted to pose on the deck ;-)|
|Trying to give swimming lessons a big thumbs up!|
12pm--after swimming lessons we headed into town to pick up my bins f rom the consignment store. Out of two full bins I took in they only returned about 10 items to me, so I was happy! Can't wait to find out how much money it all sells f or!
Then we ate lunch at McDonalds....forgot to take a pic....sorry!
1:30--Grocery shopping at Walmart. After about 3 minutes I called Lee and told him I just couldn't do it. Brielle was AWFUL! She refuses to sit in the cart (the buckle doesn't even work...she knows how to get out)....today I tried a more "fun" looking cart but that didn't work either. She runs wild when not in the cart too. So all in all it is simply impossible to go grocery shopping with her. I believe the 0-3 year range is when you are pretty much screwed when it comes to grocery shopping. Raya only does slightly better because I can bribe her. Oy.
|I'd turn my back to grab something, then turn around to see this. The whole trip was 1 step forward, 2 steps back!|
|Tantrums in the kitchen mean it's time for a late nap!|
And Mama only has one word to say about nap time:
