Yesterday was a packed day of fun activities for the whole family. We hosted a little potluck for dinner. Alex's best friend Ty came and the boys played while the several adults talked. It was so nice to be an adult. And I loved spending most of the afternoon in the kitchen cooking and baking. Afterwards we dashed over for an open house. More adult time! And enough kids that Alex and Teagan had fun. I liked the fence in backyard (Alex could play without totally supervision). Alex seemed to like their lawn mower. Teagan liked all the willing attention givers. Joseph liked planning some surf fishing (ok, I liked that too, any excuse to go to the beach is a good one for me). But all that fun and we messed up bedtimes. So today is one of those Mondays. Teagan wants to run around the house naked and pull my hair out, Alex wants to be left alone. And to keep the screams and fits down I'm willing sacrificing the cleanliness level of my house. A big sacrifice? Not when it means a mostly peaceful day.
