Just a Typical Weekday

This time captured in Toy Camera special effect camera phone.

I planned on doing this from the night before, but when we woke up, it turned out it was not a typical day. We have been (we being DT) waking up at 5:30 or so and having leisurely mornings. This morning he didn't wake up until 6:45, so we started off behind.

First things first, look for toys

Then wake up big brother

Play kitchen

Play pirateship

Bro wants to play beanie babies

Move on to wind up boxing match

A very non typical breakfast of toast and yogurt and Bakugan. Usually we're all there, but I was getting ready.

And also making lunch of PB&J, cheese stick, applesauce & juice, plus freeze dried fruit for snack. End of day tally, only 1/2 PB&J, applesauce & juice consumed. Boy is living on air.

And making dinner, salsa chicken

Time to brush teeth!

And/or floss

Now into the car! Note, LT got a booster seat this weekend and DT has been promoted to LT's old seat. The car needs to be leaving at 7:54 to be on time for the 8:00 bell. We have it down to a Science. 7:56, you will still be on time, but will be walking up as the bell rings.

Kindergarten line up craziness

Last kid on the playground

Trying to get into Mommy's car

Oh wait, Daddy takes me to daycare! TT comes over to the school and picks up DT and I head to work.

Peace, quiet & coffee at work. Artwork is a few years old! During the day, I hang out in my cube, email & IM, work, work, work, go to meetings, go to lunch with friends, go down and get free fruit and drinks.

Usually, I pick up both boys, but today I was running late and didn't leave until 5:10, so it would have been tight to pick up both, so TT picked up LT for me. I have to leave at 5 sharp to make both pickups by 6, or really rush DT into his carseat.
There was a birthday at DT's daycare, so he brought home baloons, which both boys really enjoyed.

Then DT wanted to play a little piano ...

so LT had to turn down the volume

Chicken burritos for dinner

Or for pushing around your plate

Followed by cupcakes (made a dozen on Sunday, will finally finish them up tomorrow!)

And a bath

Coming full circle back to where we were in the morning

And then, yes, I'll admit it, one Pokemon as the video is due back on Saturday. First we did the sight word flashcards and I'd already checked that Home Fun was completed correctly at after care, so I think it was okay.

Followed by book and bed by 8:30!

Phew, I'm tired! We also took pictures for their Valentines, so I worked on those and sent them off to be printed. Will post back with those assumming the result is a sucess!

And now time for bed. Phew! I am tired.

Love it! What a day! And here I thought it was bedtime after preparing chicken salsa and brushing teeth! Ha, you were hardly started. Looks like you all adjusted well to the day that started off different from usual.
Have another good one today!
