Family day

Today was all about the fam.

Last night, Alexander, Middleman's friend from down the street, slept over. They were very good and very quiet. I think they had alot of fun together. This morning, Threepeat, Alexander and Middleman each enjoyed a big bowl of Nesquik cereal...yeah, yeah...I'm a bad mother. Threepeat sucked back every bite and then sucked the chocolate milk out of the bowl with a straw. Bless his heart.

Once Boy Oneder woke up, as per usual, all hell broke loose. Boy Oneder and Middleman fought over everything...EV.ER.Y.THING. At 10:30, I had had enough and sent all four boys to the park while I did a load of laundry and had a shower.

At around 11:30, I fed them all chicken noodle soup, cucumber and tomato salad and olives (I was making up for the Nesquik thing) and they wolfed it down like they hadn't eaten in weeks.

Anthony came to pick up Alexander at around noon and then I sent Boy Oneder and Middleman to their rooms for an hour to cool off (and so that I could get some peace). I took Threepeat for a drive and grabbed a Timmy's coffee...notice the ridiculousness of my signature...Roll Up the Rim is a SCAM. Anyhoo...I digress...Threepeat fell asleep and I continued to drive for a while because it was a beautiful, sunny day.

When I got home, he woke up almost instantly after about a 45 minute nap...crap. Hubster had a shower and Boy Oneder and Middleman headed over to the grocery store on their bikes to grab some treats. They played football with a bunch of friends for about half an hour and then we headed over to Grandma's house at about 3:30. We played with Lucy (gosh she is cute) and had a great roast pork dinner (thanks Mom!) We took Rosie with us to Grandma's, so we all went for a nice walk around "Lollipop Land" after our big meal. Lucy has SO much energy! Poor Mom.

At about 7:15, Threepeat was beginning to melt down a bit (and so was I), so we packed up and headed home. Threepeat was asleep in the car by 7:30.

We transferred Threepeat into bed and then I ran out to the store to get some chips. When I got back, we lit a TON of candles and played "Sorry" by candlelight to celebrate Earth Hour. I, of course, KILLED Hubster and Middleman. (Boy Oneder was working on his Kumon that he refused to do earlier, so he didn't play, but he did sit at our candlelit table to do it.

At 9:00, Boy Oneder and I grabbed our laptops (battery powered of course) and headed up to his room, where we both are now, lying in bed, surfing the net in the dark.

I love the moments that we spend as a family...I just wish I could stop the incessant fighting, bickering and negativity that Boy Oneder and Middleman constantly do...it's driving me NUTS!

Did you do your part for Earth Hour?
