No school last week on Friday meant that the kids were all mine all day, just like the old days.
Also, on a related note, HOW DID WE ALL SURVIVE THE OLD DAYS?
I mean seriously. And now they can all go to the bathroom and buckle themselves in the car and get themselves a snack and articulate their needs in a reasonable way, and it was still hard. HOW in the WORLD did I take care of them 24/7 when they were babies??
We started our day with an early bird showing of The Addams Family because I am too cheap to pay $12/ticket to see a movie during the afternoon, even though afternoon is precisely when everyone is a cranky jerk and a movie would be most helpful.
On Saturday, Dorothy heard we were going to a Badger hockey game and dressed in her fanciest dress and then helped herself to craft supplies, asking me to please draw a pumpkin on a poster board so she could cut it out and decorate it. Okay, then.
