THREE CHEERS FOR MOMENTS OF HARMONY
Here is a brother o.k. with losing the game. Testosterone competitive level must be low.
A happy little girl watching Yo Gabba Gabba. She's mesmerized right now by the dancing green guy. This show's creators know how to entertain the young ones.
Restful night for a change. Only one kid came by for a late night visit.
Maybe I'll finish my book today. Do you ever just want to finish a book so you can get to the next one?
Only one time I had to reprimand. That's a record for this summer.
No big mess from yesterday's party. I expected to find pink icing on the couch cushions :)
Yeah! I'm actually feeling quite peaceful today. I have to treasure this feeling.
I know that it's only 11:06 a.m., but a Mama has to hope :) I still have a long afternoon ahead of me. Wait until I hear the groans when I announce that we're off to the supermarket.
Yoga update: I survived my first yoga session. I felt much better after it was over. My muscles appreciated some overdue stretching. The kids thought that Mr. Finger (my exuberant video yoga instructor) was hilarious so they actually watched the yoga tape with interest. They especially liked when Mr. Finger said, "Please separate the fleshy part of your buttocks when you get into position." To my embarrassment, the kids liked repeating this yoga instruction to Jillian's party guests yesterday.
Thanks to everyone for your nice birthday wishes for Jillian! She had a Disney princess party so I am surrounded this morning by Cinderella, Belle and Snow White. I think Jillian wants to keep this princess decor in the dining room indefinitely :) Jillian made sure that only "girls" got the princess plates and cups. My boys were "told" by little princess Jillian that they can find their car plates in the cupboard. This four years old rules the roost!
