Good Day

I had a really good day today. It started out well with getting the kids ready to go. Then I had MOPS. I love helping in the nursery. It gives me "grandmom" time as I like to call it. Get my baby fix, hand them back! I also got to go up and talk to the moms about the four "Make-n-Take" sessions I'm doing for them.

Then, we headed up to Westminster to pick up Ella's friend for the night. They played all afternoon outside while I opened up the house, lit some candles, finished laundry, and cleaned the first floor. Then when they came inside I tackled the basement. So, all in all a productive afternoon. When Coby got home I played outside with him for awhile pitching some balls to him. Then we did some DDR together. Then we had reading time. I started dinner for them and got myself ready for my MNO (or Moms Night Out - Kathi....making Kaitlin proud!!). We went to The Melting Pot for ladies night and I enjoyed a great meal with great friends and a great raspberry martini! Now I'm home and going to cuddle with Jon and read some more of my latest Karen Kingsbury novel. LOVE her!!

I'll leave you with a Coby funny. So, while we were doing our reading time today Ella and Julianna had come downstairs and Ella was asking (aka whining) about having nothing to do (you get to add your own dramatic tone to this...). So, I suggested they go clean up whatever they had gotten out before they did anything else, anyway. She politely whined that she didn't feel like it and I politely explained that that was our rule and she needed to go take care of it. Then Coby took the reins and said to her, "Now, Ella, do you want to play monster with dad tonight?" (FYI - "Monster" is a fun game around here involving someone being the monster and tagging everyone else who then end up on our bed to be "saved." Really, an inside version of tag!) And of course she replies with a big, "YES!" "So, " Coby says, "You should probably go upstairs and clean up so you have time tonight to do that with dad." To which Ella replies:"Yeah, you're right......Comeon, Julianna, lets go clean up upstairs...." And as they are ascending she is telling Julie the ins and outs of "monster." Coby turns to me and says, knowingly, "That's how you do it."

Silly me.

Wow! You are so productive Jenn! I wish I was more like that.

I love Coby's comment! He's gonna be a good Dad one day.
