Tori in her Drama Club t-shirt (she refuses to wear her sweatshirt even though it is very chilly).

Day 4:

Mondays are about getting back into the routine of the week: work, school, drama club, laundry and all that good stuff. I find keeping routine to be one of the more difficult things to do when Jamie is out of town. I sort of flounder, especially when it comes to cooking and eating. So far we have done pretty well, so hopefully we can keep that up.

Macie finally talked into the microphone today so that Jamie could hear her. She normally justs stares amazed at the computer screen that somehow has her Daddy's voice (what an interesting world our kids are growing up in). But today she held the mic and said "Da-Da" and "Whazzat?", which is pretty much what she says all day anyway.

Shout out to my wonderful in-laws who sent us girls a "packadige" (that is miller language for package). They sent a rubbermaid container of M&M's (among other things) which prompted the quote of the day from Isabelle: "those M&Ms from Grandma changed my life". Who knew that little bags of candy coated chocolates could have such an impact. Anyway, thanks Phil and spoil us.

FYI- only one munchkin entered my bed last night and I think she probably would have fallen back to sleep if I let her cry a bit longer, but truthfully I don't mind the company (as long as it is just one and as long as that one goes right to sleep, no kicking or stealing covers) =)

Sweet Dreams!

Macie and Jamie are so much alike...I just let him cry last night...the first night I let him in my bed, and he stole all the covers.

I love the daily posts : ). This morning, when I was supposed to be doing work, I was getting bored and then I remembered the daily posts! So I hopped over to your blog and laughed my head off. Of course M and M's do change lives! : ) Kaish crawled in our bed last night too. It was not enjoyable at all, but I was too tired to get up and move him. What is drama club?

Eric, that is funny. I laughed out loud. =)

Becky, Drama club is something the PTA started this semester at Tori's just gives them an opportunity to be in a play/ musical. She will be in "E,I,E,I...Oops!" on May 15th. She loves it!

Wow, Drama Club in elementary? That sounds fun! Eric's comment made me laugh out loud too. =)
