So today when I find myself home with the girls on a Saturday it's not nearly as "fun" as perhaps it might be for a mom who works outside of the home. To me this is now an extension of my work week, but I don't get paid overtime! ;-)
Where's Lee you may wonder? He started tailgating with my brother at the football game at 6am and they will be gone alllllll day. Lee doesn't even like Iowa football haha...but my brother had tickets and basically begged him to go along. And so here I sit, it's naptime, on a Saturday, and I don't feel like being productive so I blog instead.
So tell me, if you are a stay-at-home mom what do your weekends look like?
It doesn't help that the girls are being a challenge today. I thought we had a great plan by moving Brielle to the table with a normal booster chair, instead of in her highchair. But now the girls are sitting right by eachother on even playing field. Which means bickering...
|Raya antagonizing Brielle|
|How can they be so cute, yet so evil?! ;-)|
|She randomly decided to put Raya's sandal on...|
|Then she got furious when she couldn't get it on her foot|
|Rolling on the floor yelling at me in her baby swear voice that I don't understand haha...apparently the shoe fiasco was my fault|
|How do *I* stop tantrums? I step on her :-P|
|...and I make her smell my stinky feet ;-P|
|Raya was happy to fulfill the role of "good child" during this time|
Thankfully by lunch time everyone was in a better mood and they did play nicely for awhile. I"m very thankful that I get to play dolls and barbies as opposed to trains and trucks, but honestly even though I get to have all the fun girlie toys I can't say that playing any toy is exactly my idea of a fun Saturday :-P
And lastly as a random tidbit--Raya's preschool has a "class pet" that travels to each child's house and then they play with him and journal about the fun they have etc. Well Raya got to bring this monkey home Thursday and we have him until Tuesday, her next class.
Raya was so proud to carry him out of preschool on Thursday...she thought she was hot stuff. *But* that poor monkey was tossed aside immediately once the crowd of classmates weren't around to make jealous anymore LOL. I've been trying to get her to play with the monkey and do *something* that we can journal, but she hates him! haha. She's always been very particular with stuff animals and only likes Barney and Baby Bop...she has never really attached to any of stuffed animals and so far all she's done with this poor monkey is give him to Brielle and say "here sissy, you can have him!"
I forced her to pose for a picture with the monkey though--guess we'll journal about the fun he had playing with Brielle! ;-)
