I've often asked myself how in the world I stay in my pajamas until noon pretty much any day of the week we don't have anywhere to go and finally, FINALLY I have the answer. I stay in my PJ's until noon because:
Because I want to cook something somewhat healthy that my kids just might eat (I keep setting off the fire alarm when I cook bacon, darn gas stoves)
Because Merrick loves to draw and is getting so good with all of his artwork (this is an image of a car flying away with balloons from the movie UP)
Because pumpkins are needed to be carved with Dry Ice placed inside for a smoky effect (very cool indeed)
Because homemade play dough is requested, "in white" to make ghost with our super cool 101 cookie cutters (Michael's $6.00)
Because leaves need to be raked, and puddles need to be jumped in or in Merrick's case rolled around in and even tasted (do not for any reason tell Sean about the tasting part) and because it's beautiful outside and we absolutely loved every minute of it even though it was big time raining while we were out there and we all came down with yucky colds the VERY next day.
Because castles are a constant around here and Sean is the only one that really knows how to put them together (on those days neither of us get out of our pajamas until noon).
And because ya never know when your going to have to stick your hand into a pee filled toilet to retrieve a very much loved toy car. I asked Sean to take care of this little item of business since it falls right under changing the oil in the car and right above taking out the garbage.
So there you have it folks all my many reasons to continue to stay in my PJ's until nap time and not worry about why I don't seem to be productive enough to get in the shower. My life is FULL of small and simple tasks that could only mean the WORLD to the ones that matter most.
To Merrick and Memphis, I love you guys so much and may our days continue to be filled with adventure, messes and lots of love.
