After a busy week and a Saturday that leaves me feeling like I’ve been hit by a truck, Sundays are best left for downtime. Big Daddy heads off to work pretty early and the boys and I often don’t have an organized meal or get out of our P.J.’s until lunch.
The boys are pretty good at occupying themselves these days. When all is well, they can happily play for 3 or 4 hours without any need of me. That is what happened last Sunday. Hours of happy play while I planted myself on the couch to catch up on library books and lesson planning.
This week, well, let’s just say not all is well… Last night we went to see a student from the dance studio perform in a community theatre production of Annie. It was a lot of fun and our little 7 year old friend was fantastic. However, we didn’t get home until well after 11:00 and so the boys have been at each others throats.
In order to take up my station on the couch this week, they have all been sent to separate bedrooms to read, sketch or listen to audio books for some much needed alone and quiet time.
