The morning started out well. I slept all night long, woke up, spent some time with my new garage friend, and even showered. Then the kids woke up. Benjamin is dressed, but only because he slept in his clothes. There are marshmallows all over the kitchen floor (I didn't even know we had marshmallows), there is dry erase marker on the new bookshelf (which is lying in pieces in the living room), and Joshua is upset because he thinks it's his birthday and I have yet to give him a cake or presents. There is a giant mark on the bunk beds that I JUST FINSIHED PAINTING, and I had to perform surgery on the air hockey table this morning. Emmeline was busy showing me how she can count to 100 by 2s...68, 70, 74, oops, now I have to start over. Samantha, my saving grace, is sleeping. However, she already had two outfit changes this morning. "Mom, I very need chocolate milk 'cause I never had ANY!" It's shaping up to be one of those days where I work all day, then take a look at my "to-do" list and realize I've nothing to check off.
Yesterday, I taught the Primary kids a little song to remember the apostles' names. Now, it's stuck in my head...Packer, Perry, Nelson, Oaks,...or as Joshua says, "Packer very needs a nose..." Lost in translation.
Sam's awake. Diego is over. My minute is up.
