Now she thinks they are jammies


Okay, so a few weeks ago I posted a post that caught some people's attention. While some thought it was completely rational and normal, others thought it was quite wierd. I dressed Laine in this dress on Saturday night in attempts to help us get to church closer to on time.

So, I guess I ruined the punchline for myself by the obvious title ... Last night she asked to wear the dress when getting ready for bed, since now she thinks the dress is jammies. Here she is eating her cereal this morning.


Many wondered if this did infact help us and problem. Sadly, at the time, no. Ben was out of town and my sis Kristine stayed with us for the weekend. I got up and started getting ready but the kids still weren't awake at 8:59. So rather than wake them, I thought a GREAT idea would be for me to have the week off and acutally be able to pay attention during Sacrament Meeting. Kristine stayed back (I don't think she minded having the week off either) with the kids and when I came home during the Sunday School hour, Laine was just barely waking up (10:20) and Gabe was still sleeping. He finally woke up at 10:45, we got him dressed and fed in a jif and were out the door, barely making it to Relief Society on time.


Now that pre-school has started, the kids are on a much earlier schedule that would have been perfect for 9:00 church. However, as of last week our ward was assigned a new and wonderful 8:00 slot, so we are back to square one.

Nat,
Your blog makes me laugh every time. When I read the post about Gabe in the highchair it reminded me of the time that you were cleaning up strawberries and brocoli that had fallen off Lane's high chair with your central vac system. Seriously though, your kids will have so many fun memories of the crazy thing you do and the way you allow them to be kids and have fun.

Love,
Stace

What else ya gonna do? :) Sometimes I have to take a step back and pick my battles...like Bobby's obsession with his bright green Crocs? He has to have the on at all times...sometimes he even has to sleep with them on. Oh well. And when mommy is sick? Well, kids get away with MORE stuff than usual...like feeding them ketchup and ice cream for dinner because they wanted it. Forget healthy nutrition.

So hilarious...Laine is just nuts. :) I don't think 8AM church should be allowed!

Okay, I just want to know how in the world your kids sleep in that late? Seriously, what do you do?

That is so something I would do with my kids. My latest is getting the kids cereal poured in their bowles so that in the morning when I'm groggy all I have to do is pour the milk and then I can try to go back to sleep on the couch. ANything to get an extra 5 mintues of sleep. :)
