I remember thinking, when the kids were toddlers, that once they got older their bedtime rituals would be simpler.
It’s been a long day. I am more than ready to go to bed.
My boys will not go to bed.
At first, they were cute and snuggly and we enjoyed an episode of Peppa Pig together. Now, though, they are whiny and tired and we’re all over it.
In fact, as I desperately try to post a blog for today (so as to not break my streak!), the little one is shrieking that he can’t find Ice Cube (his penguin Beanie Boo, not the rapper) while the bigger one yells at him for being so loud.
Time for bed. Waaaaay past time for bed.
Such a great day.
We began our Saturday with an Easter egg hunt in a lovely park, and with gorgeous weather. We could not have asked for a better day: sunny and pleasant, not too cold but not hot. Perfect spring weather. The kids got to enjoy lots of crafts and activities (seriously, how can you beat bunny hats and parachute games??), and then, of course, The Hunt. What fun! They filled their baskets with colorful eggs, and then opened them one by one, oohing and aahing over each egg’s contents.
When we returned home, it was egg coloring time! The kids have this down to a science by now, and they created some beautiful eggs.
All in all, a splendid Spring day. I’m looking forward to many more of these!
