The weeks go by so fast!

It seems like every time I turn around it's another weekend and then another trip to get groceries, another laundry day.... I wish time would slow down a little! I remember 5 min being an eternity when I was growing up. Waiting for mom to get out of the bathroom. What was she doing in there? Now that I'm a mom, I know. I hide in the bathroom and lock the door for 5 min and READ, lol. Something besides Thomas or the very hungry caterpillar or the big book of trains that is! The kids and I had a splendid day yesterday. A leisurely morning, a trip to the gym, then met Wesley at costco for lunch and picked up some fruit and dishwasher detergent. Back home for nap for Robert (Mary slept in the car so wasn't ready for a nap until Robert woke up!) and then I took Robert outside to play. We had a blast. I got some great pics on my new camera. We had meatloaf and mashed potatoes from scratch for supper and then Wesley went to help Brad H with something and I gave the kids a bath and they were both out by 8:30. Robert made it til 8:10, lol. and then he almost fell asleep reading a book and headed off to bed without me! Speaking of Robert, he's been in undies since yesterday (except for nap of course and to poop which I tried to combine a diaper). That includes at the gym care, to costco, etc and then today to sharp shopper, a couple quick errands, lunch, walmart and home! I am SO proud of him! No wet pants!
