It's 9 o'clock pm but it feels like 10. We're still trying to get use to the time change. Why does that mess me up so much?

So...it's 9 and I find Peter drinking from John's glass. Coke. [Poor John has to be a closet coke drinker in our home because all the kids want it...and I don't approve.] Mean mommy. Peter calls it, "Daddy Juice." And after he drank about a half a cup of it he turned into a robot and repeated...."daddy juice, daddy juice, daddy juice...." for about a minute. Then he was very happy and entertained us until the sugar rush ended and he crashed on John's lap. Okay, I left out the crying details after the sugar high.

Next morning.

It's raining today. Picture a big smile on my face.
Here's my to do list for this special raining day:

  1. Stay in p.j.'s all morning.
  2. Make scrambled eggs for breakfast.
  3. Watch You've Got Mail. {Barney will have to do}
  4. Pop popcorn and make hot chocolate.
  5. Read a pile of books with the boys.
  6. Play games with Andrew.
  7. Build a blanket fort. {I should have kept Addie home today}
  8. Bake.
  9. Take a nap with my feather down comforter.
  10. Try not to think about the clean up.

I have got a closet coke drinker at my house too. He doesnt stay in the closet about it though. :) Carter is our sneaky one that loves to get his daddy's drink.

Cute post, Nola. You are such an amazing mom.
It's Mountain Dews for me, but only every once in a while. I feel bad telling the kids it's not good for them while I'm drinking it down!!
