On Monday, I slept in. Sleeping in, for me, means that I didn't get out of bed until 6:00. Sleeping in also means that I didn't do many of the things I typically do when my house is still quiet. This is particularly dangerous on Monday. Because I didn't review my calendar and e-mail and various other tools that I use to keep chaos at bay, I forgot that Stephen was slated to say the pledge on broadcast at school. Not only was he late to the broadcast room, he had a big bed head.
Let it be known that his father and I both attempted to get him to brush his hair with water, but apparently this was the look he was going for!
I only realized that I had slipped up when I went to check Mary Frances out of school at 8:05. I know that sounds terribly silly, but because the school day begins at 7:50 this allowed her to get to school and unpack her backpack before she left to go to the orthodontist.
Have I told you we have braces? Well, I guess you noticed in my pictures from Easter, but yes we have braces! Our braces coincided with the arrival of the spring baseball season and in my dismal ability to keep up with our lives in writing was simply overlooked.
Upon dropping Mary Frances back at school, I took the little ones to the zoo for an hour. I see my time with multiple preschoolers at home slipping away. While that does not upset me, I want to capitalize on the time that I do have.
Do you find yourself asking where the animals might be?
