WITL- Friday 2013

At 6:30am, Madeline woke me up. It was a good thing to, because I had forgotten to set the alarm, and we would have been late otherwise.

I got ready for the day, and woke Aaron up. He wanted Chocolate Chex for breakfast. "You have to eat the white ones, too, " I said. But he was "full" before he finished them all.

Aaron was buying his lunch, Papa John's pizza, at school today, so I didn't need to pack him anything. We practiced his spelling words for the week and then his "star of the day" presentation at school. 

With the few minutes Aaron had before heading to school, he joined Maddie in watching Doc McStuffins. Before heading to the car, Aaron gave me a big hug. He said, "You are so warm." Love that he still wants to give me hugs!

Madeline had her breakfast after dropping Aaron off at school.

I gave Madeline a bath, since with the busy evening before, I didn't have the chance. Maddie is wanting to be more independent. She wanted to put her own earplugs in (she did a great job!) and scrub herself (which required some assistance). I listened as Madeline sang "Part of Your World" in the tub. 

Brushing Madeline's hair has become more difficult the longer it gets. Madeline does a pretty good job letting me brush and braid or pull it back, when it needs it, though.

With Madeline having no school on Fridays, and us missing the library earlier in the week, we decided to spend our morning there.

We ran into a class visiting the library and they were being read a Fly Guy book. Madeline decided to pull up a chair and said, "My turn to be the teacher." She then read the kids the book! The guy was really nice in letting her do her thing, and even the kids asked her to read another. Of course, when the kids started to get up Maddie would say, "Excuse me, please sit down." and when they started talking she said, "Please be quiet. We are in the library!" So grateful that this teacher let Madeline Shine!

Madeline also met another girl and became friends with her. She read Brave to her. Found out that she played soccer in the same league and they might see each other at Saturday's game!

Brought back home, two movies, two Flip activities and a ton of books! I love the library!

In Madeline's Flip, there was a game for us to play. She learned how to raise her shoulders like a buffalo.

After we had finished lunch, Tom came home. Madeline was so excited to see him! "Welcome home, Daddy!" she said. "How was work today?" She wanted him to play with her right away, but he hadn't eaten lunch yet, so we read books instead.

Tom took over reading once he had finished lunch.

Before getting Aaron from school, Tom thought it would be a good idea to get some of Aaron's birthday gifts off his list. We went to Toys R Us, Walmart, Target, and Dicks to find his presents. We think he has us on a wild goose chase with the Star Wars Lego set on his wish list!

We went directly to pick Aaron up from school. Tom hates when I take pictures like this. I struggle to include him in our albums because of it. Snuck this one while we were waiting for Aaron to be released. Aaron was excited to see that Dad was there to pick him up.

Aaron was super excited about his Flip pack! He loved the play money, the calculator and the things he could "buy". 

Aaron opted not to watch a movie, even though it was Movie Day, so Madeline got to pick. She picked The Princess and the Frog. Tom laid down with her as she watched her movie.

Aaron played, doing calculations while Madeline watched her movie. He joined in watching about half way through, even though Madeline had moved onto playing "food truck".

Madeline found Aaron's skeleton costume in her room and decided it was time to scare all of us with it!

We ordered Domino's pizza for dinner. Madeline and I had pepperoni and pineapple, while Aaron had cheese and Tom had sausage and onion. We have recently been ordering from them because we found it was cheaper than buying frozen pizza from the grocery store!

Took the kids to play miniture golf. Aaron had been asking to go for a while. Since Tom started taking him to the golf driving range.

Wasn't a relaxing, fun time as I had hoped. Aaron had to take a potty break, after denying the need to go for 6 holes. Aaron was excited to play, he was the first to go, and he would take off to check the next hole. Madeline would want to follow suit, so always had to have a hand on her at all times. Then Madeline had an accident. Made her play with wet pants until we were finished.  Both kids had a good enough time that they can't wait to go back. Might be a while until I am up for it though.

Tom got the kids cleaned up, and into bed while I went to get gas, a prescription filled, and a birthday gift for the party Aaron is attending tomorrow.

Watched When in Rome, a Netflix DVD, with Tom until I was too tired from the medicine I was taking to stay awake. Realized it was a Woody Allen film, and didn't get it anyway, so we returned it without watching the whole thing.
