Apparently Mama had a bit of an agenda today.
That never goes over very smoothly.
it worked out alright.
I can say that now as I'm finally sitting here alone in the quiet and semi-dark. :)
Before you judge me too harshly, know that my babes were quite deep into their own agendas, as well, today, as was Eric (who was at work) so maybe we can just blame it on the moon, or something.
Enough of dark confessions... moving on!
Hex! Today I began Hex.
Me And Geometry ain't turribly simpatico, but I managed to bang out the basics, none the less. And I'm quite pleased with the results, truth be known.
'Course, we had to play a few rounds....
As usual, one idea leads to another, and this prompted Madeleine to create her own game... one with lily pads and a river and enough space for all of her Best Loved folks to play with her. At once, of course.
Mama has been ordered to whip up eleven frog sculptures to hop across the lily pads. I told her that eleven was probably beyond my capabilities, that I could maybe produce four or five.....
our contract isn't firm, yet.
Trev and I read the next three chapters of The Sorceror's Stone. I found myself being antsy and anticipating what was going to happen next after we had put down the book and carried on with our day....
There were cars and tracks
and singing and dancing and computer games and Night at the Museum games
and the eye-clops
and Duck, Duck, Goose (the board game)
and plans for all sorts of things like parties and trips to the Zoo.
I have a vague feeling that I've forgotten about ninety percent of the day's goings on,
but frankly my brain has left me stranded, and I'm just not that interested in trying to summon and insist. :)
Babies are back rasslin' and carryin' on in chaotic madness with Daddy,
and it's about time for me to sign off.
There comes a time when you just nod and say "that's quite alright by me."
Babies are good....
wait - and quiet....
Mama's happy and so tired
Daddy's fiddlin' with somethin'
see you tomorrow....
