bobbing head

bobbing head

My husband just walked up behind me and laughed at me. I turned around and said “Whaaat?” I honestly had no idea. He then mimicked what I had been doing. You see, we have all of our music on the computer, all 28 days worth (I’m not kidding, it’s ridiculous). Late this afternoon our little boy just was not settling down, so I put him in his little bouncy chair and set the music on random. Music often settles him, as does the vacuum cleaner, which gives me more motivation to vacuum.

When you have as much music as we do with so much variety, you just never know what you’re going to get. Well, the music is still playing. And at that very moment it was some kind of rap/hip-hop stuff and, apparently, I was sitting here bobbing my head to the music. He thought it was very amusing. Me? Not so much.

early to bed…

… early to rise? Not around here! No sir. At our house we have a mandatory wake up time of no earlier than 7 am for the children. They usually wake up before 7 but they have to stay in their beds. My husband and I usually get out of bed sometime between 6 and 6:30, so this allows us time to get up, have a shower, get dressed, talk to God, read our Bibles, etc before the kids get up and then there is no quiet to be had anywhere in the house. It’s the best thing we ever decided to do, second only to our mandatory quiet time in the afternoon. I like mandatory. It means it happens, no questions asked and if for some reason we stray from the norm it’s just a special treat and not to be expected.

Anyway.

Now that my oldest daughter is going to preschool three afternoons a week, she isn’t getting her quiet time in the afternoon, during which she will sometimes sleep. Today is Thursday so she went to preschool three days this week. Three days without a quiet time. Three days of lots of playing and running around. And that makes one tired little girl. We had dinner at 5pm, had baths and all the kids were in bed by 6:30pm. I LOVE IT!!! It means by 7pm I’ve got the house picked up, kitchen cleaned and I can do more fun things like read blogs :) So although I’m still dealing with the issues of sending her to preschool, I like the extra time in the evenings that it has created.
