So Glad For Friday!

I SOOO needed Friday to come. It has been a crazy week. Both the transitions of Aaron being home from preschool and Daddy being home early and not having babysitters have thrown the household off kilter, but we'll get right back on track.

As for the bakugans, after speaking to the boys who took them this morning, I am quite sure that the they have now lost them. I am not going to pursue it any longer, but when Noah asks why he can't take toys to school, the answer will remain that he can take toys again when he retrieves his bakugans. If he wants to pursue getting them back, then he can. Otherwise, it's time to let it go.

Aaron is so behind in his sleep after two days without a nap, that he is extremely unpleasant and he won't get one today either since we're picking Deb up at the airport this afternoon. I think he (and Deb's daughter Hannah, whom we're picking up from school) will have fun watching the planes take off and land. But you can bet tomorrow will ABSOLUTELY be a required nap for him. If he survives that long. The problem is that the longer he goes without a nap, the less he sleeps at night and the earlier he wakes us ALL up in the morning.

I ate almost an entire bag of Hershey's kisses this week so I know my stress level has been high. Now I have to pay the price in guilt.

I usually take about 100 to 200 pictures in a week. This week I took seven. Not seven hundred, SEVEN. If that doesn't speak for itself, I don't know what will. Here are a few of my favorites though:

Here is Aaron "comforting" Pumpkin the morning after the kitten vomit fest on Tuesday

As far as I'm concerned, the cat's name is no longer "Pumpkin". I am now going to call him "Mutt"

As you can see, Big Sister Minnie wasn't too concerned about little brother Pumpkin's digestive issues.

Noah curled up asleep. He sleeps hiding under the covers every night, but when I went to check on him last night, I loved how the blanket framed his face.

Noah has had perfect days every day this week and if he does great today, he will have had his first perfect week since November. I down played it though so he didn't get too stressed about it. His reward is going to be movie night tonight with white pop and he is going to be allowed to make a recipe from the book that my sister sent home with me on Wednesday. (He LOVES this book, Shannon!)

Have a great weekend and come back on Monday and share. Maybe I will win the Home Depot card from the bloggy carnival and get to paint my living room...hey, one can dream :)

My son also sleeps all covered up, I have a picture of him (on the old computer)snuggled into his head board-- completly asleep!
I was also glad and scared that it was finally Fridy!
I have to keep them busy, but they seem to be so happy just being able to play without my input!
