It's T-ball night.

Friday at last. Well, Fridays aren't as big a relief to me as they used to be now that I have T-ball with Cody Friday nights. My sore throat is raging on, and I'm getting a little annoyed. I don't know what the deal is with that. In truth, I'd like to stay home tonight and work on my homework, but I feel guilty doing it. I went to Cody's first T-ball night and Mike went to the second, but I feel like I'm the one who's supposed to be going. The weather is really gross too, so we may end up inside the gym instead of outside.

This morning it was Cody's turn to wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Miraculously, he slept in a bit and did not get up until shortly after 8 a.m. He admitted to me that he was not feeling very good, and when I asked him to elaborate, he basically said he's in a bad mood. Fabulous. The good news is, it's almost lunch time, and I have only had one confrontation with him today, so really he is doing all right. Jamie is overtired, as usual, but he'll nap so it's not so bad. Somehow we're in this cycle where they stay up past 9 p.m. and then they're overtired, but they never seem to get to sleep earlier in the evenings. It's frustrating.

I had a nice evening out last night with my friend. I really enjoyed my time with her, and even though I did tell the odd horror story about motherhood, all in all I had a nice break from the insanity. I called Mike on my way home, at around 9 p.m., only to discover that the boys were still awake. I almost turned around and went back to town. But they were sleeping by the time I got home, except for Micah, who greeted me with the most adorable toothy grin when I walked in the door, so it was good.

I kind of took a day off from all things domestic yesterday, so my house suffered significantly. Mike did not do the dishes in my absence last night, not that I blame him. So today is my chance to catch up, I guess. I'd rather nap, but I suppose that is not an option! At the very least, I think I will find some way to make a cup of hot chocolate today to soothe my throat. Maybe Mike will go with Cody tonight after all. This is the last night of T-ball and then the next three weeks it will be soccer.

Anyway, I clearly do not have anything deep to say right now, so there is no sense in dragging this out. I better go do some cleaning or something. Micah's asleep and the other two are fighting in the basement. Jamie is crying and Cody is yelling. Sigh. Cody is telling Jamie how to play. These are the fights I just ignore because they usually sort themselves out.

Oops! I am now buried in a pile of laundry (three baskets full) and Micah is crying in his bed because I just put him down for a nap. The other two are outside, despite the less than ideal weather. I guess I forgot to post this. As thrilling as it is, I guess I better not leave it out. Here come the troops. Oh boy! Aw! They brought me "flowers"!

Gosh, here I am just finally getting caught up on your blog. I was gone for the weekend and so I was unable to check your posts untill today and yesterday. I like this post a lot because I think it is very admirable of you to take Cody and do something special with him. I try to do that with my sons. Last week I took Zeke to get a haircut and then we went to Mc Donald's just the two of us and it was really fun.

I hope your throat is better by now.

I do the same thing when Zeke and Neo fight over toys. Those fights usually work themselves out. I only get involved when there is wrestling and mega screams of pain. The rest of their arguments they work out themsevles. You would laugh at me just sitting there doing nothing(cuz you know exactly what I am talking about), but it's like we know as moms when the crying or yelling gets serious enough for us to intervene. If we stepped in every time our kids would never learn to problem solve and we would be exhausted.

Later Girl!
