Monday Micro: Five things I learned this weekend

1. The key to getting small children to stay still at Starbucks long enough for Mommy and Daddy to enjoy their coffee: A creme (coffee-free) Frappuccino.

2. It's hard to have an appropriate level of mercy for a dog with the stomach flu, when he wakes you up at 5 a.m. as he loses his dinner on the carpet.

3. Eavesdropping on your daughter's Sunday School class as she sings (well, yells) Jesus Loves Me? It may hurt Mommy's ears, but it also warms Mommy's heart.

4. If you let your kids sleep way too long during nap time, it will be hard to get them to bed later in the evening. But if it gives you the opportunity to finish a novel during said nap time, it's totally worth it.

5. A guy who will clean up the living room and put both kids to bed while Mom does some Sunday evening grocery shopping? That guy is worth keeping around.

If you learned/relearned all that over the weekend, I think you ought to take today off to rest up from all that learning! :)

There are definitely times when it is SO worth it to let them sleep just a bit longer!! You know...we both seem to be blessed with some pretty awesome husbands!! I'm glad things are going well these days--keep up the exercise!

We love the Veggie Tales Worship Songs CD- it's what is usually playing in my vehicle. My daughter and I sing full blast to it all the time. Recently, my 2 year old son started singing along and it absolutely melts my heart into a ginormous puddle at my feet. "Come! Now.. Time Wrrr... Ship!"

Sounds like you had quite the weekend. I always take the little me time moments when them come to me. Staying up late one night never hurt anyone.

Lovely to have a husband-appreciating post, thank you. We need our pats on the back (head) just as much as our partners. And well done, the Engineer for deserving it.
