Yesterday I'd planned to quickly pop into two stores with Monkey and Princess, and then hit the library - to return a few things that were due. About seven steps into Barnes & Noble my cell rang. Thomas had gotten a bloody nose at school and it wouldn't stop. Drop everything and drive the 45 min. to pick him up. And of course his nose had stopped by then and he was fine.
Took him back home for lunch, followed by no naps (for me - I really wanted one!).
And then I finally made it to the library to return stuff. Between Princess and I we'd checked out 15 dvd's for our Thanksgiving trip. Thank goodness Little Einsteins was never requested. I'd checked it out for Emergency Purposes Only. Charlie and Lola, my new favorite show, was a popular one, though.
Thomas climbed into bed with us at about 2am - feeling much too warm. Pulled out the dye-free motrin.
Monkey climbed into bed with us at about 3am - he didn't have a fever, he was just feeling chatty. Finally got him back to his bed at 3:30 - or so - now the times are all blurring.
Ugh. I need a nap.
To top it all off, my kids are already all hopped up on Christmas.
La st night this morning Monkey saw a light from a passing car and got very excited: "It's Santa! Yes it IS! It's Santa!" When I finally convinced him it wasn't he said "Oh, it's a spaceship." I didn't argue with that one. He's also been carrying around a basket full of lego pieces. "I have everything I need for Christmas. Santa will bring me a castle for my guys."
Thank goodness this is the last day of November - December could be a really long month. At least we can start our advent calendar tomorrow.
Have a good weekend - I'm going to go hit the excedrin.
