Today, I am feeling better, thank goodness. I fell asleep with my two children at 9.30pm last night. Today we had a nice and cozy morning together:
The children watched a movie, munched on sandwiches and painted me pictures. I took the opportunity to read a few articles in Vanity Fair. When I went to get coffee and came back, I realized that it was time to go outside:
At 9.30am we put on some warm clothes and went outside to play. I always tell my children to be polite towards all the people they meet, to be calm at restaurants/public places and to dress without making a fuss. I would be in shock if the children suddenly ran away from me in a store or started yelling at a restaurant. That does not happen. Sometimes I have had to wait a couple of minutes when one of them have refused to put their overalls on, but I have always been consistent and today they know that they have to get dressed when I say so. Otherwise we sit there and wait.
However, there are a few occasions/situations where I have not been as consistent, for example: picking up their toys at the end of the day, taking away there plates after dinner and sometimes I have given them yogurt when they have not eaten their dinner. When it comes to sleeping, I always allow them to sleep with me. All of the above are things that I need to address. But I really like to have them sleeping in my bed. Also, I have not stressed about the children using diapers. Gillis stopped this last summer and I thought I would start potty training Sally this summer. Maybe it is a little late according to some?

We brought some of yesterday’s chocolate balls outside, even tastier today.
When we got home, we turned our kitchen into a Beauty bar. Everyone’s nails were painted (the toes as well) in some lovely pink and red shades. Then we had banana pancakes with a healthier version of Nutella and some raspberries. So tasty. Now we are going to watch a movie!
