Yesterday I actually felt enough energy juice in me bones to actually take the little spawns outside somewhere instead of letting them watch Treehouse all day while I lay on the couch and yell orders at them (in between moans and groans). So I decided to go to this park we like and bring lunch and have a little picnic. The spawns needed to get out a run a little. It was nice, it was cold at first but then the sun graced us with it’s rays and we warmed up and had a lot of fun.
They had recently cut down a tree there and, for some reason, they surrounded it with sand. So in the sand we played. Silas wrote words in it (of course) and did some “fixing” of things. Isaac mostly poked the sand with sticks or piled it up on something only to take it all off and start all over again. He also copied anything that I would do.
Lunch was a bunch of different things. Crackers, cold chicken (which Silas insisted he eat off the bone…), oranges, apples, bananas, grapes, fruit bars, etc etc etc. Ikey ate pretty much nothing and Silas took nibbles of each thing and then left them on the blanket once he made them sandy enough.
We played a rousing game of “IM GUNNA GETCHOO GETCHOO GETCHOO” (get you) and did some spinning. We chased a few birdies, fell into some blackberry bushes, held Silas down while he screamed bloody murder while I expertly administered his inhaler, pretended to give ikey some inhaler too because he wanted to feel special just like Silas, and the kids played fetch (their favorite).
I was pretty much exhausted by the end of it. My body was like WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU DOING?? GET BACK TO THE COUCH LADY! I LIKE IT THERE!! We went home just in time to get ready for nap and for me to get my lazy butt back to the couch. I did end up cleaning and having a shower though so it wasn’t THAT bad. I’m glad I’m starting to feel a bit better. Being sick so much sucks big round soft things.
The kids had fun, lotsa fun. Oodles and oodles. They’re so cute too. You must see for yourself.
