I woke up this morning feeling out of sorts, not grumpy, just wishing for something different than what was planned. Chores and laundry just sounded - blah.
So I didn't do any. We spent the day learning about penguins (coloring pages, connect the dots, anatomical diagrams, puzzles, and the penguin scene in Mary Poppins!) and playing in sprinklers and puddles (and then the bathtub - I wish I'd thought to snap a picture of my very muddy boys) and then we turned the dinner table into a kitchen and made banana bread. It is much more fun on the table - the extra room makes it easier for me to help the boys participate. Jonathan can crack an egg all by himself now, and both boys are learning how to measure dry ingredients.
I still have to do the laundry and the house isn't very clean. But I think that today, this was a good decision.
