Pool Toys and Socks from the dryer...

...apparently all end up in the same place - MISSING!!! Yesterday afternoon, we headed to Target and bought some new "torpedo" diving sticks for the boys to swim with. They were all very excited, and for as much time as we spend at the pool, I thought a new swim toy would be a fun treat. Well, an hour and a half later, one of the 5 was lost. I was SO annoyed. I was very VOCAL about being very annoyed that we had already lost one. I shouldn't put so much blame on my kids. It's VERY possible that another kid just took it. But we had JUST bought them! As I'm driving home, I'm telling myself that it's just not that big of a deal - the pack of 5 was $8 I think. So it's only $1.25 or so. But still - it's the principle of the matter! The kids were very tired when we got home that night, and dinner was a bit later because David was in Williamsburg for a seminar. It was one of those nights that I could not get them in bed soon enough! Callie was climbing on everything - it's her latest trick - being Spidergirl I guess. She climbs up (fully) on the high chair - last night it came toppling over on her. She also tries to climb up the stove to see what's going on (HELLO - SLIGHT safety issue here!), so the discipline is in full force! Hoping for a better day today - yesterday we had lots and lots of fun, but it sort of ended with a big SPLAT! I was up at 4:30 AM to do my long run (8 miles) for the week, so I should have lots of energy to face the day, right? :)

We had so much fun with you all yesterday! Thanks for letting us crash your day...sorry for leaving a SPLAT behind:) I'm amazed that you squeezed in more activity after we left...of course they were exhausted! Sorry you lost your pool toy...its frustrating losing anything, no matter how little the cost.

BTW, is 4am your normal wake time on run days? YIKES!! I'm tired just thinking of that hour!

Katy - I know exactly the days you are talking about! I have even tried to fool them into thinking it's bedtime when it's not quite. No luck with that now - Sophia double checks the clock :-)
