Woke up feeling the pangs of the cold that I thought I was over. My body just craved a little more sleep. After taking Kai out at 3 am, I actually let him lay in bed with me (and Izzy). Still not sure how Izzy ended up in our bed, she just knows when hubby is at work. But I was surprised to find her in our bed at 3 am. When Kai is in bed with us, he will just lay there till I get up, and that's what I needed. I was not looking forward to a 6 am walk around the block. So we got to sleep in till 7am.
I headed out to Ethan's class for a field trip at the Performing Arts Center for the Symphony. I love that this guy does not mind having me over in his class at all. He totally loves it... he really is a mama's boy. The concert was really good. I guess I associated the word Symphony with Sleep. But it was upbeat and interactive with different music from around the world. It was the bus ride and the noise I could have done without.
While we sat and waited for the performance to start, a nostalgic feeling came across as I sat there in a theater, looking at the stage, the lights, the crowd.. It took me back to Drama Club back in Highschool... It's still hard to believe that I was so into that. If you stuck me on that stage right now at age 32, I'd have a panic attack and probably faint. But back then.. I (we) my girlfriends and I enjoyed it. Rehearsing lines, dances, and plays... Staying afterschool to practice. Then our late night performances or going to different schools. I was Juliet, in our rendition of Romeo and Juliet. We did little humorous skits (kinda like SNL) and several dance plays.. those were my favorite. Being on stage and 'acting' was fun during my fearless teenage years... Oh what I would give to be that fearless again.
By the time I got home.. I had a pounding headache. I took an hour nap (with Kai). And it was just what I needed to tackle the rest of the evening.
The day was a little warmer but still gloomy, the snow has melted in the front of the house, just working on the backyard...
Enjoyed a nice salad for dinner. (Mainly cause the kids ate all the Salmon for dinner, note to self, the boys eat like adults now).
Tuesdays we all gather in front of the TV to watch The Biggest Loser. My kids are just as into it as I am. At the end of the show, they are always eagerly awaiting to see how much the contestants have lost. They also got teary eyed as we watched "Sunshine's Dad" in tears about his brother's death. And cheered for Kole' when he lost 10 lbs!
Ethan (and Izzy) has been enjoying Kemps Frozen Yogurts.
Kai is getting so big.. Noticed that today as he sat with Izzy and she tried to carry him.
The clock strikes 9pm, it is still light out, the kids are tired, and the dog is putting himself in the kennel.
That pretty much sums up my Tuesday. Let's see what Wednesday brings.
Till then, this last pic was Kai and Yukon's (Paula's Dog, if you don't remember, he's the lab we were interested in a while back..) First Meeting... Kai looks tiny here, but it simply is because Yukon is HUGE!
