Day 1:

Dinnertime was infinitely more wild. There was some playful pummeling between kids, very little eating and some drooling and growling.

One massive melee during a tug-of-war over a stuffed Pluto that ended in crying double time-outs.

Bedtime was a cluster packed with book reading, coloring, singing and general chaos.

Sleep was interrupted at 2:30 a.m. by Huck screaming because he fell out of the bed.

2:35 a.m. screaming for water.

2:45 a.m. screaming “I’m done!” (with the water)

2:50 a.m. screaming because Pluto was stuck in the blanket.

3:00 a.m. screaming because he doesn’t want Mickey Mouse.

3:05 a.m. screaming because he wants Mickey Mouse.

Woke Huxley up from deep slumber at 6 a.m. by singing, “Do you wanna build a snowman?” from Frozen. He woke up smiling instead of crying, so this was a huge success.

Counted school buses on the way to day care. (Alma said, “They’re not going to our school. They’re going to HIGH school.”)

They are NOT morning people.

Children arrived on time, while I was late to work. We are all still alive.
