On Saturday #196 (#16 for Harper) it felt like deja vu...
The sky was dark. The house was quiet. I struggled to shake sleep from my eyes but my son was ready to go! I kept trying to convince him to stay in bed with me, but he refused. The sound of his retreating feet convinced me it was time to get up.
I fed the cats, got Roo a cup of Apple Juice and a bowl of cereal. As he was headed to the dining room table he said "Snow Mommy!" I looked out into the dark night to see he was right. Inwardly I groaned. The never ending winter. Hence the DeJa Vu. It seems like for at least 10 weeks it has been this way on Saturday morning.
I played with Roo for a while after breakfast. Harper was up around 6. She loves to cuddle! We grabbed a cozy quilt and proceeded to make Harper smile and giggle. She is a very sweet and happy girl.
As the day was underway the weather got worse. I had no interest in leaving my house. I lingered most of the day. My husband was itching to get out so he volunteered to go pick up milk and to take Roo with him. I made a short list of things we needed and waved goodbye to them.
Harper and I enjoyed each others company while the noisy boys were gone. Soon she was sound asleep, soothed by a quiet house.
The boys came back, we had dinner and watched an Alvin and the Chipmunks cartoon with Roo. Soon he was tucked into bed too.
Not an exciting weekend at all. Another Saturday spent indoors, protesting the cold. I hope you were able to make the most of the day and spend it with the people you love. You get 940 Saturdays with your kids from birth to adulthood. I hope you get out and make the most of that time!
