Today we had a little get together with my in-laws. My mother-in-law wanted to spend some time here and wanted to make bread. My sister-in-law wanted to sort through some things before she moves. The cousins came and had nothing but play, play, play on their minds. I was a little nervous when I agreed to let every one come over, but excited to see everyone, and I knew the kids would love it. I thought that maybe this was the break that we all needed.
Here is a very brief explanation of the day:
Hellos, toys, clothes, chips, cries, time outs, yelling, apollogies, bread, movies, noise, no more movies, toys, more bread, nerves, things being flushed down the toilet (not sure even now what it was), toys all over the place, more clothes, more yells, find shoes, "get out in the car". "mommy, I want to go with them", more cries, more yells, goodbyes, headache, ibuprofen, hopefully later- a nap!
