A Very Busy Day Already

Have you ever had one of those days that every activity you mention sounds like a really good idea to your children? So, you get everything out (or dump it out) and everyone starts playing and 5 minutes later your picking it all back up and switching to something new where you start the process all over again. This morning has been one of those days. We started off the morning dancing, which led to the pots and pans coming out for a drum session. Then when I couldn't stand it any longer I suggested they play kitchen with the pots and pans. This was great fun and they did actually play this for quite sometime. Then they decided to play blocks.And string beads. This is one of Drew's favorite activities. Today he strung the entire set all by himself. Then decided he wanted to were it as a necklace.Then we played Legos.That didn't last long and Drew wanted to paint. There was no picture taken of this activity because it got cut short with Drew playing in the cup of water for the water color paint and spilled it all over the table and floor. So, since he wanted to play in the water I had him play with some toys in the kitchen sink.While Drew was playing in the water, Brodie played in his oatmeal bin with his construction trucks.And then they had to switch. Then we decided to have some quiet time and read some books and look through our totbooks.Finally it was time for lunch. What a morning! Drew is finally sleeping and Brodie is at least playing quietly. I think Mommy may need to take a nap today too. They keep me busy.
