Adventures in Babysitting: Soccer, Cars, Bath Time, Movie Night, Project, and TIRED

Saturday, late morning, the boys had a soccer game. Not much to note there except that during the game Lilia was sitting in the stroller and Anne hung on the handle which pulled the stroller down on the top of her and caused the stroller to fold onto Lilia (apparently someone didn't lock the stroller into place...).

It was a scoreless game for both teams. But it's always entertaining to watch little kids run - or dance - around.

I felt pretty handy on Friday when, after picking Benny up from school, we swung by an auto parts store and picked up a bulb for the back right blinker. I tried just jumping into it to figure it out, but ended up needing the owner's manual (glad they had it easily accessible) to find out how to get back in there. Only took a few minutes and I felt very accomplished. (:

Saturday night - after baths and setting Sunday clothes out - we turned on Wreck-In Ralph. I hadn't ever seen it and the kids already liked it, so we camped out on the family room floor and ate pizza. The kids loved it.

After they went to bed I finished a baby blanket I started working on a couple of weeks ago. Lilia liked it so much she requested one in pink and purple. And Anne asked for one in purple and green - although, to be honest, I'm not sure if she knew what she was asking for. (:

I got home last night around 8:30. I fell asleep on the couch before making my bed (pulling them out of the dryer and putting them on my bed was the last thing I did before leaving), and then I woke up at midnight, put the fitted sheet on, and then climbed in. This morning I was up before 7, emailed my work supervisor and told her I'd be doing some work from home and going to part of a CPS tech class too. I started falling asleep before 9. Every time I babysit nieces and nephews, I come away from it with a renewed appreciation for those moms who do this day in and day out. I'm exhausted from just a few days with cute little kids. My hat is definitely off to all of you.

Last thing, and then some pictures -

I follow CSLewis Quotes on twitter. Yesterday this quote came up and I love it -

'The homemaker has the ultimate career. All other careers exist for one purpose only - and that is to support the ultimate career.'

Now the pictures -

I got told I was doing it wrong and the peanut butter goes in the middle, not on the top.

finished product. I love the colors she chose.

Thank you so much for changing that light!! I would definitely feel very accomplished if I were you. That was really nice of you.
And thank you, again for watching the kids for us! We really appreciate it.
