Oh my goodness. I am tired. I have no idea how or why our outing today wore me out more than it did the boys…but it did! They seemed tired when I tucked them in but then I had to go up 3 times to settle them down again. Or threaten them.
It might have been the cookies I gave them now that I think about it…..
We went to a water playground for another summer-fun trip today! I told the boys on Wednesday that we would go this week and they have been pestering me since. You would think I know better than to give them advance warning by now…
Wednesday night, after bugging me 637 times about it, Zakkai crept in the room where I was putting E to bed and whispered (loudly), “Mommy, just in case you forget about the water playground…I will remind you!” Make that 638 times.
I admit that I did not want to make the long drive into the city but I promised the boys and I knew they would love it. One look at their faces filled with joy as they splashed, ran and played and every tiring minute of driving and traffic was worth it!
These pictures are for you, Ben. We miss you!
I am enjoying it, too, and it makes me want to watch the movie when we’re done! I love kid’s books!
We are anxiously awaiting the return of Daddy and are counting down the days and hours til he arrives. Or at least I am counting down:) It’s pretty exhausting to be solo 24/7 for so long. I have the utmost admiration and respect for military wives (or husbands) and single parents. I also remind myself that 4 days is nothing compared to the 9 weeks he was gone 3 summers ago. It really strengthened me and helped me get over my fear of these long days/nights by myself. That doesn’t mean I dread it any less though, unfortunately….
So tonight, we’ll be dreaming of playgrounds in the water, beautiful sunny days, fresh fruit, pizza, exploding diapers, oompah loompah’s and chocolate rivers:)
I’d say it was a successful day:)
