Today was an unexpected rest day for me.LOL My mom called and offered to take the three older kids to lunch at 11am and the mall today and I said yes!lol I'm still battling this cold, I'm not too bad but it still sounded wonderful to have my cabin fevered kids out for a while. I asked her to look for coats for the littles and she found really nice ones at JC Penney's, half-off. Evie's is pink and Isaac's is blue. Five minutes after they left, Isaac fell asleep on the living room floor watching Oswald. That was an unexpected bonus as he's been quite cranky. I left him there because I was afraid he'd wake up if I touched Anyway, he's still asleep and it's almost 3pm right now. Poor guy's had a rough 2 weeks. I finally moved him 2 hours ago so I could benefit from this empty-ish house and get some cleaning done. It's amazing how much can be accomplished when no one's undoing whatever you've already The kids just got home half an hour ago and are playing or working quietly in their rooms. They had a good time and I did too! I got out all the preschool stuff and tore out the things that need copying tomorrow and I downloaded a bunch of stuff. I also printed out a bunch of things for next week. I'll run all my errands tomorrow while Eric's home, just in case Isaac isn't ready for going out. He may need another sleep day.

Normally, today would have been park day but we had a cold front move through last night that is producing 20 mph wind gusts and with them just getting better I called it off. It was really nice of my Mom to step in and take them out today. I'm sure it was a real blessing to my kids also!

That was so nice of your mom to take the 3 kids out. My kids love spending time with their grandparents too. My mom and dad live 2 1/2 hours away so they don't see them as much as they like. Your blessed to have her so close!

I am very grateful for any help I get! It is so nice that all the grandparents want and like to spend time with the kids. I'm sure that these will be memories that they will remember for years.
