Tuesdays in the Momma Needs Coffee household can be a little chaotic. Today was for sure. Every second Tuesday is grocery day, but today wasn’t a grocery day, we aren’t on that week!
Today started off like any other day. I was up and out of bed by 630. I tried to convince the boys they wanted to stay in bed, since, you know, it was still DARK outside. But they wanted to get up and that was that.
Tuesday is library day for the boys. The library in my area runs a program called Toddler Tales on Tuesday in September and October. The boys love it. It is only a 30 minute program but when you factor in getting to and from the library and trying to do a craft that involves glue sticks and stickers with the two boys on my own, not to mention trying to get them both to sit still and not talk while the librarian is reading, I am ready for a nap by the time we are done with the whole thing. Although, that almost never happens. Every second Tuesday is groceries, and the weeks that we don’t grocery shop there is usually something else going on. Today T and Baby L came over for the afternoon. Which is always nice, as I feel like we almost never see each other anymore. Mostly because I spent the last almost 2 weeks quarantined because I ended up sick.
Aside from T being over, our afternoon mostly flowed the way it normally does. Until after supper. When I decided the boys should paint their Halloween Pumpkins:
Obviously. I am insane. So, when they were done it was bath time. After bath, they followed the Bubble Guppies, Teeth Brushing, Story reading, Bedtime routine.
T and I are taking part in a Biggest Loser Challenge in our town. Tonight was our first weigh in. I am going to be posting more on that in another post, so I can track what I am doing and how my weight loss is going.
Now I am home. And baking chocolate ship cookies. Trying desperately not to eat the dough. Or the cookies.
Baking cookies seemed like a good start to a weight loss challenge. What do you think?
Love, Hugs and more to come later!
