Why hello there, Monday.

I see you've come around again.

I'm in no mood for you today, Monday so back the heck off until I drink my coffee.


I much prefer Thursday to Monday. 

Thursday is our day off. No work for Mama, no school for the Big Boy.  Just me, the kiddos, and a day to reconnect. 

Last Thursday, I got a head start on the weekend, and took the boys out for pizza for lunch. 

Where is the pizza you mentioned?

A pretzel is really not an effective object to hide behind. 
If anyone would like to take my children out for lunch, here are a few critical pieces of information:

*Arrival time: 11:15
* Seating: 2 high chairs, out of striking distance.
* Requirements: Snack bag, sippy cup, and small, interesting objects (i.e. car keys)
* Time frame: You will have approximately 15 minutes of acceptable behavior in which to order, eat, and clear out. 
* Reality check: the Big Boy will most likely eat nothing - no, not even strips of pizza dough covered in cinnamon-sugar. 

Sure, you have to handle the whole operation a bit like a coordinated military maneuver, but it's worth it. 

And that was just the start of our weekend. 

How was your weekend? 


  1. LOL, every outing is perfectly crafted by me, down to the minute. I think you have to do that with multiple boys.

    Sounded like a good time!

  2. Haha, so true! Oh man, I load Sammy up with so many snacky foods while we're waiting to be served that I'm always amazed that he actually eats a full meal. :D
