This morning that time arrived at approximately....3:30 am. I had already spent over an hour tossing and turning in bed.
I was tired of lying there unsuccessfully trying to get to sleep. I made my way into the living room and at 3:30 started watching yesterday's Days of Our Lives and Ellen DeGeneres episodes. Apparently I was either too loud or the TV was too bright, but I was joined by Miss L at 5:15 am.
We quickly became engrossed in a Cricut Expressions infomercial. As girls, we both agreed this could possibly be the most essential thing in our household....if only we had one.
As I was sitting on the recliner, savoring the fact that I was holding my quickly growing girl, I joked about going to Wal-Mart, right then, just the two of us and buying one (at 5:30 in the morning).
Of course, Miss L informed me that I probably shouldn't go spend a bunch of money...."because Daddy wouldn't like it". Geesh! What is that all about? So even at 5 years old and 5 o'clock in the morning we still have to be sensible and responsible?
Steven joined us around six, and Mr. B shortly thereafter.
Needless to say, we had already enjoyed a game of Candyland by 6:30 am.
Steven left for work fairly early and the kids ran outside to enjoy the 60 degree February weather. They were knee deep in mud by 8:00 am. Is THAT sensible and responsible?????
Mr. B seems to think so!
