A Week in the Life-Friday

4:30 a.m: G-Man awakes. We head to the couch to let daddy sleep and we fall asleep together til approximately 6. Such a sweet time!! Grant I will wake up every morning at 4 to sleep/snuggle with you!

7:30 a.m: Feed babies and listen to Family Life program "Speaking Truth in Love" and hear this "Men see better then they hear." Take away: Nagging doesn't work...change a man by your attitude and actions. Easier to nag...just saying ;)

9 a.m: Evie eating oatmeal {had picture but finishing this on Shawn's vs my computer}. I am working on yesterday's blog post...honestly on the computer more this week then usual. I don't usually blog quite this much.

9:10 a.m: Evie is in timeout twice for disrespect {"Don't talk to me, MOM!"}. Serious issue this week, most likely from getting back from our vacation and grandparents. She was outside nearly 24/7 at my parents who live in the country and have a large yard and cement patio where she could ride bike. We have no yard, no cement and a road where people slow for no one, let alone children.

9:55 a.m: Silly Evie moment: she put this curling iron on her toe and then put a hat on it. Seemed odd but she thought she was "silly Evie" and laughed.

10 a.m: Evie asks to watch a movie. We pick out a new one from the baby's birthday stash and she enjoys "The Care Bear Movie," a total favorite of mine from childhood. Nothing like a "Care Bear stare!" She makes sure to include her favorite stuffed animals Monkey and Quack

10:44 a.m: Grant up from naps first and though not Auntie Jess's original intent with these puzzles, they do make great symbols as Grant can attest to. Also fun to drop!

11 a.m: Playing with a pop-up toy of the kids. It was enjoyable to flip them up and have them go crazy trying to keep them down, kind of like a low-tech version of the "pop the weasel" game.

11:20 a.m: Ella getting into the chalk. Something new they can reach and put into their mouths. Now the easel is empty of writing tools. As an easel goes it's pretty useless now. I find a new blog to enjoy "The Daily Garnish."

1 p.m: SURPRISE! I change more doodies ;)

1:15 p.m: Ampa and Amma A. arrive to watch kids for a working/busy weekend.

1:20 p.m: 3rd timeout of the day for shouting "I don't want to!" disrespectfully when I tell her to clean up her horrifically messy room. I once again talk to her about respecting mommy and tone.

1:30-2:45 p.m: Shawn interviews 3 applicants for the chiropractic position. One applicant definitely stands out above the rest starting with her humor, punctuality and professionalism.

3 p.m: Naptime. Ella is so adorable hugging her pink teddy bear. Trying a later nap time today which was a huge success {at least today...tomorrow may be a total failure...that's how it goes!} as even Grant slept 1.5 hours. Ella was the 2+ hour champ!!

3:15 p.m: Clean up kitchen, finish unloading the dishwasher and of course fill it right back up!

3:30-5:30 p.m: Make an offer on a home in M. Go through the purchase agreement and what seems like 100 addendums and addendums to the addendums. Really, why has paperwork gotten so ridiculous? Now to wait til 8:15 p.m. when she meets with the sellers.

5:40 p.m: Amma's dog in his kennel because he's a little naughty and likes to get at baby toys and honestly freaks Grant out a little when he's loose. But in his kennel? It's like Grant's own personal zoo!!

6:30 p.m: Out to eat at T. BBQ. Henry was being silly and then shy about his silliness. He was ADORABLE and as usual upheld his reputation as a flirt with the ladies.

6:45 p.m Evelyn patiently waiting for her corn dogs and applesauce.

7:45 p.m: T. is well-known for it's bread die for. I barely managed to remember to snap a picture before inhaling the rest. The kids enjoyed it too!
8 p.m: Walking home with all the kids in the quad stroller. You should've seen the stares when we walked in the restaurant with it!!! Notice the phone...even though the meeting hasn't occurred yet, I kept it with me at ALL times.

8:30 p.m: Bath time for Evie.

7:05-10 p.m: Shawn at the M.D. game with the BOB's {Band of Brothers} from church. Our team wins 12-1!!

9:25 p.m: Tara FINALLY calls...sellers are going to go home to discuss their counter offer and then meet with her at 8:15 a.m to present their offer.

10 ish: Shawn home. Discussion about the house and the offer. Off to bed at 11.
