Do you have little ones you are continually trying to quickly go down for a nap or to bed? Just wait until they are teenagers! Their schedule is sometimes too full and their eyelids too heavy. The other night after supper two of our sweet teens both said independently, 'I'm going to go take a nap before we have to go to g.m.'. Age really changes parenting tactics. Now I'm trying to get them out of bed not into it!
Since the cat has only been to the vet office, I wonder if each and every time we leave in the car that he thinks we are going to the vets? Or maybe his wee cat brain doesn't think that deeply since he only seems hardwired for mice and soft places to sleep. Lisi is a different story. She's just plain morose when we go anywhere without her. No matter where it would be, it would be the best trip ever.
I know I should be urging our MYP to make their own school lunches. But they are very busy with work and school and extra-curriculars and so I don't make them. However, the luster of making three lunches tailored to each child - each and every morning at dark o'clock has lost its luster. Sandwich, crunchy something, fruit or veg, a treat, a healthy snack or two... so far they haven't complained of their choices. I would have them eat the school lunch but one refuses because it all is 'gross'. The other two are ambivalent and it costs nearly $4/lunch. So frugal me keeps spreading the mayo.
I've been going through some closets here and there. I texted this picture to daughter #1 of her bathroom yesterday. She replied, 'are we moving?'
