Just Another Day.....

The day went well...though it started VERY early with wake-ups from both children in the middle of the night. We bathed early, had breakfast and went outside to drive Bennett's car and just play in the backyard. Then Pres and I watched Bennett while she half-participated in her dance class before coming home to eat lunch and take naps.





All day I kept bargaining with Bennett to act nicely, eat her lunch, etc so she could go to a puppet show after her nap. Since she minded pretty well all day, we went as a family. They served a light dinner for the kids, and then the show began. Since she only ate the brownie from her dinner, she was hyped up on sugar and she giggled at everything, even things that weren't funny. As the sugar high wore off, she got bored and asked to leave. When we got home, nothing sounded good to her for dinner, so the tears started when we made her eat. Pres was also crying because we strapped him in his booster and force fed him (like we do every night). However, after the end of his dinner, he coughed a little and then up came his entire dinner (so off went the clothes).

Then he went straight for the one cupboard without locks on it so he could pull EVERYTHING out of it. It is truly his favorite thing to do....create a mess. And since I hate a mess, I cleaned it up, only to have him empty it again 5 minutes later. Urggg....
