Not my cup of tea

I am incredibly lucky that the hubby doesn't have a job where traveling is frequent. I realize this now after being a "single" parent for a few days. I mean... I am home each and every day and could do the whole day's routine in my sleep...but by 5:30, it sure is nice to have that extra set of hands.

The winter doldrums are still going strong here. I know the snow is melting but that is not enough for me.... I am CRAVING sunshine and warm temperatures. Walking to the mailbox with the kids is just not enough fresh air for me...though yesterday it was awfully exciting for Joseph when we stopped to watch a REAL cement mixer truck in action. I think the workers thought we were crazed because we stood there for at least 10 minutes just watching it turn and turn and turn!! As I always say.... it's the little things....

We've already made s'mores this week, learned how to cut paper snowflakes, decorated foam snowmen with sequins and markers and watched Alvin and the Chipmunks Valentine's cartoon (I still remember this from when I was little....and it's still as good as I remember it). I think I am running out of winter projects and it is only January. Uh-oh! Guess I'll have to say a quick prayer before the groundhog decides whether or not spring will be around the corner!

I was pretty tuckered tonight by J's story time....so imagine the smile on my face when Sophia asked if she could read to him???? She read the book word for word and J couldn't have listened more intently!




Okay...not too motivated tonight to work on any projects....so it may be an "off to bed early night" to snuggle with my freshly bathed Willie Bear.

Well P is out of town (actually out of the country...ditched me for Paris again!) so I can completely relate! By the 4th or 5th day I usually feel like I could mentally lose it. Low expectations....that's all that gets me through!!!

Those 2 reading together...now that's one cute picture!!
