The day began oh so beautifully. Jacob didn’t have TV privileges in the mornimg because he refused to help with his chore and threw knives and stuff…. and he took ownership and threw not a single tantrum!🤗👏👏 He enjoyed 2 breakfast sandwiches and created Lego masterpieces.
After my first trip to Livonia for the day they decided the next best activity was obviously rock smashing. My first awakening to this experiment was
Emily: Momma, is it okay with we your saw? (My chop saw!)
Me: Ummm… for what?
Emily: To break open the rocks.
Me: NO! Absolutely not! That is very bad and unsafe idea.
Emily: Awe…. 😞
After that all I heard was:
Jacob: I’ll get the sledge hammer!
Emily: I’ll get the hatchet!
And THAT’s why my kids aren’t allowed to break open rocks anymore…. But look at those problem solving skills!
After arriving home from Livonia my second time I was oh so pleasantly serenaded by a half an hour conk shell concert. If the shells “accidentally” fall on concrete at some point in time and shatter, it wasn’t me! 😉😆
After a quick dip in the pool I was asked by Emily to play a game:
Emily: Momma want to play a game with us? You can be the elephant because elephants are…. (trails off)
Me: Wait, why do you want me to be the elephant?
Emily: Because they are strong like you.
Me: (Suspiciously) Yes, of course.
After I returned home from my THIRD trip to Livonia (thank you fall sports) I was caught in the Lego booby trap that covered 3 quarters of the living room floor but do not worry! They have all cleared away their own “territory” on the Lego table so they can build new things. How they’ll find their Legos from there is a mystery, but the territories have been established.
Currently, Jake is upside down on the chair yelling at me that he can’t sweep the floor meanwhile Emily is asking “what does he need to do momma? Here Jake, I’ll help you” and she is sweeping the floor.
I’m not in charge of bedtime tonight but our lovely neighbor and Kaitlyn are tagged in. Good luck girls, godspeed!
