Ruined

My boys are ruined. The day that James left for work my boys totally forgot how to play. Apparently without their Daddy, they have no idea what to do. James is amazing with them. He knows exactly how to keep them entertained 24/7; while me on the other hand, cannot play with them the same way he could. I have things to do, like sustain the life of my infant daughter. While I am nursing they are literally standing by me, just staring at me; waiting for me to finish so I can play with them. They are so restless. I have to threaten them in order for them to start playing. "Go play in the playroom, or I'm sending you to bed."

Yeah, I feel like an awesome Mom, but seriously! Before the summer began they were getting awesome at playing with each other and not having to ask me to help them come up with something for them to do. Today I asked them if they wanted to go for a walk and they just sat on the porch, bored out of their minds. Thank the Lord for Otter Pops to keep them busy for at least 5 minutes. At this very moment they are in the playroom, actually playing with each other. Only because they know the minute they ask me what to do, it's nap time. We're all just learning to get back into the swing of things. And little Miss Ella isn't helping with any sort of schedule that we had. Let the year begin.....

When you guys said you were bored, I always said I could find something for you to do (chores... sweep the floor, dust, vacuum, dishes, make your bed, clean your room, put your toys away, etc. etc.). I know your boys are still a little young for that, but you sure got motivated the minute I found something for you to do :)
