Kiddie Spring Break Day 3

My kids are going to have the most fun telling their classes about how their parents both work and what’s a break anyway?

Highlights included:

  • Dorothy and Cooper teaching Minnie how to play hide and seek. She plays the game in its purest form— no guile, no worry about someone’s feelings. Just pure, stompy FINDING POWER. It’s darling.
  • Extra bonus MINECRAFT MONDAY hours. MM usually starts at 1:30, but today? AS SOON AS YOUR EYES OPEN.
  • Lots of friend hangs because it’s SUNNY and that isn’t on the agenda for, oh, THE REST OF THE WEEK.
  • Billy Madison. When is this movie NOT a highlight, I ask you.
  • Teen #1 starting a week of tennis try-outs
  • Teen #2 finalizing birthday party plans
  • Picking up matching nightgowns for Dorothy and Minnie to wear to Dorothy’s birthday party
  • Collapsing on the couch with a YA page-0turner and some oatmeal with peanut butter mixed in after everyone (FINALLY) went to bed.

Here I am deciding to take a sleek, sophisticated bob and make it look ridiculous. HAPPY MONDAY, indeed.


  1. That polka-dot top is darling! I love polka dots. And oatmeal with PB. I had that for supper on Sunday night because I'm classy like that - haha. I will admit I end up topping my oatmeal with as much volume of extras as I have oatmeal - bananas, raspberries, chia seeds, chocolate chips (I went back for more because oatmeal without chocolate chips isn't truly living), pumpkin seeds, walnuts, oat milk, and cinnamon. It's a bit much and oatmeal purists everywhere are horrified.
    And now I'm craving oatmeal!

  2. If it makes you feel any better, someone asked me what our spring break plans were and I couldn't even remember when spring break was. So I suspect our plans will be "Please take the trash out sometime today" and "You should probably get out of bed eventually"
