Tuesday, November 11th was P's 8th birthday, so we took it easy on the 12th.
After you read about our day, don't forget to click on over to Not-So-SAHM and Where the Watermelons Grow to see how their days went.
7:30 am - Why is T asleep in my bed? Why? I'm asking seriously. I awake early because he keeps kicking me. Mean little feet. (And notice how he has managed to wiggle his way into the absolute middle of the mattress).
7:45 am - P checks out her new pierced ears. T manages to worm his way into the photo.
8:00 am - Just when it seems like the morning is going smoothly, T realizes his favorite pants are all in the wash. Thus begins, "the great pants meltdown."
8:15 am - The girls surprise me by unloading the dishwasher without being asked (they apparently felt bad for me during the "great pants meltdown").
9:00 am - After dropping the girls at school, I read the New Yorker while walking the dogs. Leaves are pretty.
10:00 am - Darcy Troutman Photography is experiencing its busiest fall ever (yay for all my amazing clients). So I have a lot of editing and slideshow making to do. The puppy keeps me company.
Noon - Walk to Journey Yoga for an afternoon class, followed by the grocery store. I have to cut my list in half when I realize I can't carry most of it home. After looking at this photo I realize that mostly junk food survived the cut.
[2 pm - 3:30 - work]
3:45 pm - Pick the kids up from school. T seems to have recovered from this morning's "great pants meltdown".
5:00 pm - My friend, Laurie, is in town for a work trip, so she comes over for dinner before heading back to Charleston. So excited to see her!
6:00 pm - T does homework while we drink wine.
7:00 pm - The Arlington County School District bought ipads for every student in F's 3rd grade class. She's a little obsessed.
8:30 pm - Dan puts the kids to bed, so I can walk around the neighborhood for hours in an attempt to knock Nora out of #1 (if you have a fitbit, you understand).
