We have had a strange and wonderful (mostly) sort of day around here. The biggest little boy woke in the middle of the night in a screaming panic and threw up; it wasn’t until he demanded to take a nap this afternoon that I knew he was actually truly sick. In my defense, he did tell me in the middle of the night that he only threw up because he was so upset; this is something he has a history of doing. At any rate, our morning started with simple toast and apple juice, and getting off to school went smoothly simply because he really wanted to go today.

The younger two boys and I returned home to make a late second breakfast of oatmeal and fried eggs. We spent a leisurely morning mostly indoors just being. The middle kiddo donned his boots and coat for a while to explore outback with a table knife; he wanted to cut ice! I managed to sneak cutting the boys sandwiches with a heart cookie cutter while he was outback.

I was shocked when all 3 of my children slept soundly this afternoon AT THE SAME TIME! I shunned taking a much needed nap myself and headed straight for my studio to concoct something for Hubby. I stitched him a heart. I loved doing it. I think he liked getting it.

The boys almost all woke in tears at nearly the same time, but I was so relaxed from an hour ALONE that it didn’t really phase me. I’d put dinner in the crock pot this morning, and easily whipped up the rice, caramelized onions and sauteed red peppers to go with it while the boys played outside. Dinner was even an all around hit tonight.

Now, the boys are sleeping, and Hubby and I are sitting on the couch watching tv with popcorn. It’s been a great Valentine’s Day!
