Weekend random thoughts

Just a few thoughts...

  • My kids are fighting at the moment. Sigh. They've alternated between being the best of friends one moment and screaming at each other the next. How soon can we call it bedtime?

  • My folks came and babysat the kids. The kids had a GREAT time. Grandma took Elise to one of those pottery places and Elise painted a castle switch plate for her room. We go back in a week to pick it up and I can't wait to see it! Grandpa took Carson to a small lake in town to wander (one of Carson's favorite activities!).

  • I ended up taking Carson to the dreaded school carnival on Friday evening. It actually wasn't all that bad. I saw a few other parents that I enjoy. One mom told me she and her hubby did Rock, Paper, Scissors to see who would attend the carnival...she lost. I was SHOCKED at how many of the little girls had larger chests that me (although, honestly, that doesn't take much). Seriously, these kids are all 3rd, 4th and 5th graders! I'm assuming the chesty ones were 5th graders, but *sheesh* that seems young for such b**bs! Then again, I was lucky to be wearing a bra by high school, so who am I to say?!?

  • Perry and I enjoyed a quiet date night last night. We went to a German restaurant about an hour away. Just that alone catching up the car was wonderful. We decided that we really do need to do this more often. As for the food...Perry LOVED it. I had a harder time finding something I liked....I did get a kick out of the "lighter side" portion of the menu. One item was salmon...deep fried (not sure how that qualifies as "light")!

  • We arrived home to find the kids in this get up. They did end up sleeping in it almost all night (until the storms came through at 5:00 am and they piled in bed with us!)

Sounds like everyone had a nice time yesterday.

Erin loves the ceramics places. I try to take her every few months.

Your date night idea is so important! David & I have gone on about 3 dates since Erin came home. We don't go out but stay up for an hour each night to catch up on "us time."
