S is for...

Spaced out: Jackson was in his own bubble this morning.  He spent hours laying on the couch watching TV.  I was able to do a couple loads of laundry, feed the babies, clean the kitchen, and bake.  Every time I checked on him, he was in oblivion.  I finally just turned the TV off. 

Spoon War: James won.  Or maybe the carrots won.  I swear I'm going to handcuff him one of these days.

Smart aleck: Jack refused to get dressed or even get up to use the bathroom.  He was still wearing his nighttime pull up so I forcibly stripped him down.  I asked him to at least put on underwear.  He came downstairs wearing Jesse's.  Ugh...this kid!

Spring Fever/Seventy degree weather: Jackson finally got out of his funk when I started loading the babies up in the van and informed him that I was taking the babies to the park.  That news perked him right up.  It was so warm and sunny.

Swinging Sisters: Sweet Maddie was alert and happy, which meant she was able to share a swing with Amelia.

Soaking Wet: Jackson was quite upset when he landed in a huge puddle at the bottom of a spiraling slide.  Thankfully, I always carry a change of clothes in the diaper bag in case he has an accident.  We were the only people at the park so he changed behind the stroller.  All was well again.

Speed Sliding: Jackson loves climbing and going down the tallest slides, but he either holds onto the rails or uses his shoes to control his speed.  I convinced him to put his arms up like on a roller coaster to see how fast he could slide.  He was so excited afterwards!

Scaredy Squirrel: After the park we headed to the library.  We no longer frequent weekly story time because it interferes with the babies' morning nap.  Instead, we have our own hour of reading and activities.  One of the books Jackson checked out was Scaredy Squirrel Goes Camping.  It's one of my favorite series.  The writing is seriously funny.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken: I followed this recipe for dinner and was pleased with the results, though Jesse complained that it was too bland.  We had a nice, big salad to go with it.  Yum.

Sleep: My alarm is set for 3:30 a.m. because I volunteered to cook and serve breakfast through the homeless ministry again. I'd better try to get some shut-eye.

  1. Once apon a time....Jesse had some sort of activity at school at which he had to wear a tie, he came into the living room with a tie on his head and told me, they didn't say I had to wear it around my neck..... Love the park pictures!
