8:38am: Sam's yelling from his crib woke Dave and I up this morning. We must have slept through our alarm. Ooops :) We woke up to a layer of snow on the ground too! Dave and Sam had breakfast while I picked out clothes for the kids, checked computer stuff, got ready for Teresa to come clean and packed the diaper bag. Teresa is our awesome cleaner who comes once every two weeks. I love love love not having to clean our house. It's the best thing ever!
1:45pm: I ate my lunch and then put Sam down for nap. By 1:55pm I was making myself a little more lunch (soup to go with the grilled cheese) and working on computer stuff -- pictures, responding to e-mails, etc. I was going to have a Coke but I got too tired so...
4:45pm: Rachel was playing on her play mat; Sam was done his after nap snack of a popsicle and I was having my daily Coke and going through the weekly flyers. Sam and Dave were playing the violin and ukelele and doing duets and playing with the traffic light Dave made for Sam, inspired by this e-mail.
6:55pm: I started dishes and Dave played with the kids. Then I cleaned up a bit while Sam played and Rachel was on her play mat. Dave dried dishes and we just generally got ready for an evening of relaxing.
8:05pm: I nursed Rachel and she fell asleep. Sam and I changed into pajamas and Dave and Sam played with the letters on the fridge while I made popcorn.
8:40pm: Time for Hockey Night in Canada. Yay!!! I uploaded photos to this post while we watched hockey and Sam ate popcorn for the first time. I think he liked it even though the popcorn seeds are very old so the popcorn was kind of gross. We'll do better next time...
Oh, something funny has happened the past two nights: I always go into Sam's room to say one last good night and make sure he's tucked in before I go to bed. Usually he's asleep but the past two nights he hasn't been and then he says, "I'm thirsty. Can I have some water?" It totally makes me laugh because I don't think it's a stalling technique; I do think he's actually thirsty. It's just so classic I laugh every time! Okay, good night!
