Highs & Lows

*Lucan slept pretty well last night! I nursed him at 9:20, 1:30, and 5:15. I stayed up after the 5:15 feeding and had hot tea and a real quiet time.

*Then the house was still quiet!! So I finished writing Day 5 of the Commission Bible study.

*We got some schoolwork done this morning and some reading done in the afternoon!

*After lunch, I took the kids to the park with Mom. I didn't even think about the fact that the water in the play area would be on, so I had 4 wet kiddos soaking up the water and sunshine. Kenna ran around stark raving naked having the time of her life. Unfortunately, along with the complete lack of towels and swimsuits was a lack of sunscreen. Bad Mommy. (That should be on the "Lows" list.) Mom and I giggled lots and enjoyed watching the kids play, especially Kenna.

*I got a nap this afternoon!!!

*This evening we surprised the kids with a trip to Coldstone Creamery. We used Tobin's birthday coupon plus a gift card Ted got awhile back. We got ice cream for all of us, an iced latte for my mom, and still had $1.47 left on the gift card. Woohoo!

*Tobin's glasses are finally fixed! He had popped one of the lenses out awhile ago, but we've been so busy we haven't been able to take them to Sam's Optical Center, but Ted was able to take him right after dinner.

*Since Lucan slept a little longer last night between feedings, I was feeling fuller than usual, so I decided to pump about an hour before his mid-morning feeding. I got 4 ounces, enough for a bottle feeding. However...when I had to run upstairs, Kenna (who was very curious about the whole process) climbed up the counter and made off with the pump, which still had the bag of milk attached. I caught her on the couch trying to "pump" while dumping 2 1/2 ounces of my liquid gold all over herself and the couch. AAAAAARRRRRRGGGGG!!!

*Just before leaving for the park, the downstairs toilet flooded again after one of the boys pooped. The kids were all buckled up, and Lucan screamed frantically until he conked out (thank goodness) while Mom and I cleaned frantically. Thankfully the toilet is in working order again, and the bathroom floor is once again clean.

*Mom is packing to leave tomorrow. :-( We'll sure miss her!!

Oh Kenna, I understand the Liquid Gold comment. I had a few moments where I accidently knocked mine over and was so bummed! Remember making memories here, LOL!!
