Our days are filled up lately with lots of play, lots of dress up time, and lots of messes. There are colored pencils and pens and paper scattered on the table right now. Dress up clothes all over the house. Blankets and pillows piled high to "trap Rocky up".
I try to remain relaxed about the mess. The only time it really gets to me is when they are through playing and they complain and whine and moan about cleaning up. I have to stop myself from just doing it for them. We will start some baking for our neighbors in the next few days, and I really need to get the Christmas cards done. Yesterday I admitted to John that I had been feeling quite blue the last week or so. I know it is directly related to the amount of sugar I've been pigging out on. Pretty much just short of chugging from the 1 lb sugar bag itself. That in combo with very little excercise makes me one sad mama. So my new plan is 1. run around with the kids more, and 2. only eat chocolate at night with John with our tea. I should be smiling again in no time.
