Since Jake was gone last night I decided that we’d toss the normal routine out the window and just chill last night. The boys played like crazy and then sat in front of the boob tube for awhile. They were tired but in all honesty, I didn’t want them to go to bed at their normal time either. I know, mean mom. 😉 I hate being home alone after the boys go to bed when it’s that creepy quiet in the house.
Around 8:30/9 I suggested we make COOKIES! I wrote down the word in big letters on a piece of paper and made Dylan sound it out before we made them. He was SO EXCITED when he figured out what it was! So, we made cookies. That was interesting. Luckily Owen was asleep so I could give the boys all of my attention, which was definately needed. They took turns adding ingredients and watching the mixer mix the dough. We had a few close calls b/c Aidan thought he might like to stick his hand in the mixer….caught him just in time. Goodness that kid has NO FEAR. Dylan on the other hand was very cautious. 😉 I spooned out the dough onto the cookie sheet….I had them point to where they wanted me to put it since I wasn’t letting them touch the dough. I didn’t want to deal with that mess. Aidan was a sneaky little stink…he kept sticking his finger in the dough and eating it, to which I said “you are going to get sick if you keep eating that!” I was nervous he’d have an upset tummy all night. Luckily he didn’t.
After the cookies came out of the oven I let them have ONE. They were so excited to see their “creation.” haha! I should have anticipated some whining after that b/c they wanted MORE cookies. I finally suggested something else to do….BOOKS. They grabbed a bunch of books from their room and brought them out the couch. We piled on the couch and read all of them. That was kind of fun b/c they actually sat there and paid attention! They rarely sit for that long during books. 😉 After books I let them get into our bed and watch a movie. “Mozart Sleepy Time” haha! 😉 wink wink! They thought they were getting to watch a movie and I knew they were getting a chance to wind down. I should say I THOUGHT they were actually…. I found them in there playing about 10 minutes later! ha! Stinkers. I had been feeding Owen in the living room and could hear them giggling. We turned off the movie and went into their room for prayers and tucking in. I didn’t hear a peep out of them all night! I was happy!
Around 1 a.m. when I was heading to bed I went and got Dylan up to go to the bathroom. He decided again last night he wanted to go without a diaper. I got him up, he went and I put him back to bed. Around 3 he climbed into bed with me and I barely noticed. I was so tired! All I remember was him saying “will you get my paci out of my bed?” and I rolled over and went back to sleep! HAHA!! I can’t believe I didn’t go get it for him! THat makes me laugh. He managed fine without it apparently b/c he went to sleep too. At 6 a.m. he SHOT straight up in bed and startled me. I said “what’s wrong bud?” and he said “PEE. I HAVE TO PEE” haha! I said “quick, get to the bathroom quick!” and he ran in there. Luckily he made it fine. 😀 I checked our bed and it was dry thankfully! We went back to bed but the Owen was up to eat so I brought him to our bed too. I think we were able to sleep about two more hours after that. I still didn’t roll out of bed though until 9:30. haha! I love just laying in bed even when you’re still awake. It’s nice and cozy. Dylan on the other hand was up. He is always up the minute he SENSES daylight!
It’s raining/snowing off and on today. Everytime I look out the window it’s different. Hopefully the roads won’t be TOO bad for Jake coming home. I’ll be glad when he’s home.
Today my grandma is having her lung biopsy. 😦 I hope that goes well and that she makes it through it fine and that it comes back okay. Praying praying praying it’s not cancer.
Laundry is beckoning…..
