I was trying to come up with my "write for a bit about anything" topic and was struggling. So I went to the Slice of Life blog where I'm posting all of these posts for the month of March and came across Michelle's post about Saturdays. I was inspired! So, here is my list for what I love best about Saturdays (at this point in the year):
knowing I get to sleep until 7:00
knowing I can stay in bed until 8:00 if I choose (thanks to the kids being able to play with each other, with the occasional, "Look what I drew, Mommy!" in between)
cinnamon rolls-thanks, J!
KARE-11's morning news program
college basketball-too bad the Gophers have been losing
PJ's until 10:00
no shower (the truth is out!)
afternoon naps-only if the kids do...my days are definitely numbered here!
lunch or dinner out
family outing to...(fill in the blank; I can't stay put for long on a weekend)
perhaps a glass of wine
maybe a date night with J to a favorite restaurant
Saturdays aren't such a bad day, really. They do go by so very fast! That's why I love each and every one!
What do you say about yourself? Well, I guess I'm a wife, mommy and teacher. I am blessed with a wonderful family-a husband and twin 10 year olds. I can't ask for much more than that. I love ice cream and any other dessert that has chocolate in it. Is it possible to have too much sugar in one day? I have been known to have ice cream for dinner, but don't tell my kids that! I've been blogging for about 7 years and love it. It is the perfect way to keep track of my family's happenings for me, J and the kids.
Husband, Daddy, Cook, Jungle Gym...let's see what else can I come up with? These are just of the few names J has in our family. He does everything and anything! I couldn't ask to have anyone other than him in my life. Married for 15 years, together since high school-we've been through a lot! He is a wonderful daddy to our twins and loves them so very much. They are utterly in awe of him as am I, every day.
A is our little peanut of a girl. She is full of spunk and personality. She is a little Mommy in her 10 year old self, always taking care and keeping track of her twin brother, C. Her favorite thing to do dance in her room with her door closed. She has to keep that brother out somehow! Her current favorite family game is Uno, which she is very good at! She's an artist in training, loves to ride her two-wheel bike and is a great helper around the house. She loves school, swimming, reading books, eating spaghetti and anything that's chocolate. Hmmm...who's daughter do you think she is?
C is our boy...a "boy-boy" if you know what I mean. At the current moment in his 10-year-old self, he plays catch with anyone around, with whatever ball is in season! He loves swimming, riding bikes and wrestling Daddy. He is our adventurous eater and will try anything we give him...though he doesn't always like it, but at least he tries! We love him so much and couldn't imagine life without him!
