In case you may wondering why the child is sleeping in a jacket; it isn't cold in here. She fell asleep in my arms while we waited for big sister, Jada, to catch the school bus ......... with her hands in her pockets.
I did pull the snow boots off and would have pulled the sock up, but I was afraid I would wake her. I shouldn't have worried, she was exhausted and slept for nearly three hours.
Three hours. Three blissful hours. I showered, caught up on some e-mail and even caught a 20 minute nap myself before my daughter-in-law came home. We even had a conversation without interruptions!! Then the front door flew open and the school girls were home with giggles and valentines and tales of their school day.
Homework followed. Kindergarten has homework!! I took one and Diane took the other for homework. Maya did fine with me and she even managed to read her books to me in the surrounding chaos. Jada was as tired as Baby Zara and had a complete meltdown over her homework. Gramma Barb showed up to help with Jada, while Daddy cooked dinner. Barb did dishes and I bathed girls, then read two chapters of Junie B Jones, tickled the back of Jada and then we all went to bed. I call it managed chaos.
