A day in the life...

All the kids woke up an hour early. Thank you, Daylight Savings Time.

I forgot to set the "delay start" on the dishwasher last night, which is not big deal, except the boys hear it running and want to push the buttons over and over. Stop...start...stop...start...

Marlo was quite saucy and tested me all day.

I changed 5 poo diapers by 10 am. No one's ill, just metabolizing.

I did the usual two loads of laundry. Wait...there's still one in the dryer.

The boys ate veggie breakfast sausage, scrambled eggs, a bagel, strawberries, a peanut butter sandwich, graham crackers, a banana, a ham quesadilla, apples slices, string cheese, goldfish crackers, a breakfast cereal bar and yogurt with applesauce.

Marlo ate 1/4 quesadilla, 3 slices of ham, 1/2 bagel and 2 strawberries. And her usual request of "chocolate milk, warm and full."

Graham bit me.

Graham bit Cash.

Cash bit himself.

Working together (always nice to see them cooperating) the boys pulled the baby gate off of the fireplace and took some paint with it.

Mark dutifully picked up a the cutest dresser from Craigslist for me after I talked to the seller who assured me it was in great condition from a smoke-free home. That woman is a liar with a two-pack-a-day habit.

Graham had to have a second bath due to excessive metabolization as mentioned above. Not a big deal, except that bathing and dressing these boys is like roping a rodeo calf.

I found matchbox cars shoved into the diaper wipe dispenser.

It's 8 o'clock and they're all sound asleep. They went to bed without hardly a peep. And now I'm looking at their photos on the computer and missing them.
