where did the weekend go?

I really can't recall! Friday was busy running errands (Zach took the day off). Yesterday we stayed home most of the day. Oh, they finally brought us our door for the upstairs! We needed one painted black like our front door. Only took them 4 months... Zach had a dining in so once he left (as Bill the Butcher from some movie, they had to dress up as Hollywood villains) I took the kiddos to the park and then we ate at Subway. My kids love Subway and were singing the "5, $5 footlongs" song! I've got pictures...just need to upload them to share with you.

Today we went to church. This afternoon I took Chatterbox out on a date (along with Sweet Pea). It was actually more like an excuse for me. I've been craving those molten chocolate cakes from Chili's that I've mentioned before. So we went out for dessert and then bought some groceries. Suited us both fine! She wanted me to play Barbies with her so after dinner I went and took her Barbies to a ball. It was fun. It was fun spending that time with her, playing with her and seeing how she plays. I don't play enough with my children. That is one thing I lie in bed at night feeling guilty about. Dads are more the playmates while us moms do the work. I'm not saying dads don't work, Zach is plenty helpful with the kids, but its just that they're more playful, at least in my experience (my dad and now my husband). So often I feel guilty that I don't play with them. Then again Zach's not here with them day in and out and teaching them academically...

Sweet Pea was really grinning at me the past couple of days- big toothless grins! I love it!!! She's such a sweet addition to our family!

Did I mention that Zach's going out of town? I was going to go home (to the UP) for a week but I don't think it'll work out. I don't want to drive the 10 hours alone with with kiddos. The timing isn't that great for my mom, who is getting ready to go deer hunting. I'm torn. Part of me still wants to go. I want all of our family to meet Sweet Pea before she grows so big! At the same time I don't mind staying here and trying to keep us busy. Some company would be nice...if any of you want;) I keep trying to figure out who isn't too far away. I thought of visiting Jodie in Minneapolis but I don't know her weekend schedule...so I'll just play it by ear!

I just finished up my blog and headed over to yours to find your post title like mine. My weekend went super fast too. Sounds like you had a nice girls day out. I feel the same way about feeling guitly for not playing with the kids as much as Jess does. JJ even made me feel horrible one time by telling me that I never play with him only daddy does. OUCH that hurt. Made me feel this big. SO where is Zach going for one week? Jess is going TDY to Bismarck in two weeks, but he's taking me and the kids too. It will be nice to get away.

Yeah count me in for feeling guilty too. Although I think I am more bitter than guilty lol. Its hard I am here all day, and I do a lot for them. However since I am also working I don't really get to play. Friday I did though. I got down on the floor, then the dog laid down on me. Daniel thought that looked like fun so he got on the dog....I couldn't stop laughing at the look on her face. Then I wrestled with Daniel for a bit. I just hope they remember the times I do take the time to play.

I always feel bad about not playing more with the kids too. Send me an email and let me know the exact dates you might want to do something. I would love to if we're free!
