So, in celebration of no braces, Monday night the boys and I made pumpkin spice rice crispy treats. I know you must be kicking yourself if you missed that, so you can read about here. Believe it or not, Garrett actually wanted braces, so I guess I'm celebrating not having to spend that money yet.
Yesterday, I almost burst into tears at work when my youngest called to remind me of his Fall Carnival at school. I was actually hoping he had forgotten about it. I had a nagging headache all day and was still in full pity party mode, so I told I told him we'd talk about it later. Once I picked up both boys, they both began to hound me about the carnival, so I told them they would have to convince their dad to take them, and they would have to use their own money. Yup - Mom of the Year, right here, folks. Ben grudgingly took them, and although my headache was still hanging on, I took the opportunity to change the sheets on our bed, sweep and vacuum, do three loads of laundry, etc. I don't think I even sat down the entire 2-1/2 hours they were gone.
The boys walked in shortly after 8p.m. just bubbling with excitement and burdened with their haul. My oldest walked up and shoved a pan of cupcakes in my face and proudly announced, "See what I won for you mom?" Yup - See what I mean? Mom of the Year, I tell ya. The rest of the evening was spent snuggling with the boys and talking about their night.
Conversion Diary, and she mentioned a book that she recommended some time ago entitled Organizing Solutions for People with ADD. This reminded me that after reading her recommendation, I bought the book. Now, where is it?? Welcome to my world.
