Our day started off with pancakes as it does every Sunday that they are with me in the morning. We did cinnamon pancakes today instead of our normal chocolate chip. . . . maybe I should have started the day with chocolate. The boys play and fight. Are you really surprised? My patience is wearing thin . . .
Time for the Valentine Day cards. Yep, we waited until the last minute. Again, are you really surprised? I had Joe write his name out on all of his cards and let James color his. Some of my patience returned.
Does it look delicious?
Naptime. Did either one of them sleep? NO. Why would they? I did get about an hour of peace as they laid in their room reading books. Welcome back patience. :) I went to tell them they could be done resting and it looked like a library threw up in their room. Ugh. We tried to play a game but there was screaming (it was happy screaming but it still was not what I wanted to hear) and running and craziness. Just not the day I wanted to hear it. It was driving me crazy. Enter one-on-one time. Something Mike and I do with the boys every other weekend. Joe went to daddy's house this weekend and I got some one-on-one time with James. It's kind of relaxing to just have 1 kid. Patience slowly returning.
Joe returns. Lots of picking on his brother. I have the cure -- bathtime and bedtime. No naps had them both falling asleep quickly.
Patience -- it really is a virtue, isn't it?
