  • Whitman joined us in bed around 2:30 this morning. I guess that it was pretty chilly in our bedroom because I didn't mind snuggling with him...until it was morning time and the heat came on. It didn't take too long for it to get hot in our room, which is the hottest room in the house when the doors are closed and the heat is on. 
  • I quickly got on up and started waking up people, hauling laundry, finding Whitman's clothes, waking up people, opening blinds and emptying the dishwasher. Whitman woke up fairly well and was excited to hear that it was Ms. Stacy day and that he was to bring a toy from Christmas. 
  • Soon he was in the car with his jacket, milk, poptart and two bears-one was old and one was indeed from Christmas. I think that Whitman really enjoy school; I just hope that he obeys when he is there.
  • Back at the house, everyone had waffles or pancakes for breakfast this morning. Then it was school time and surprisingly, it went much better than I could ever expect. I did get frustrated only once when Reagan and Graham slammed me with all of their school work at one time. I like for everyone to bring me their work after they finish one or two things. Otherwise, at 11:30 I have 40+ pages to grade. 
  • Campbell and Keaton went with Robby to pick up Whitman. Robby said that they used up all of their words on the trip but surprisingly, they have had many more words that they have used today. When they all returned home, we had lunch followed by some chores.
  • It didn't take too long for Whitman to lose his ipad this afternoon. Could someone tell me why my boy has stopped going poo in the potty. A few folks ran to Dairy Queen for their weekly Blizzards. They even brought me home one which I happily enjoyed as soon as I stepped off of the treadmill. Yes, I do see the irony in that.
  • We had baked potatoes for supper tonight along with a bit of chicken, chili and a ton of other toppings. The kids all love baked potatoes (except for Whitman). Afterwards, the kids all showered and then, Robby and I migrated to our bedroom where Keaton, Campbell and Whitman migrated in and out. The others watched the Bates in the living room and gracious, they must have been using Robby's sound bar to the max because the walls of our room were shaking. 
  • Reagan passed out the rest of her dessert that she made last night while I tried to figure out what we could eat for our dessert. I had hoped that she would bring us a piece but that didn't happen. It is Thursday night after all-the night before the weekend of my 40th birthday-definitely that deserves some type of dessert!
