Anyway, as an early birthday present, my wonderful Mom took the 3 little ones last night and we were down to only 2 kids - the older 2 - the easy 2 - you know the 2 that you can tell to go away and entertain yourselves while Mom and Dad actually get to sit down and have a conversation - uninterrupted and all!!!
Of course it would have worked a heck of a lot better if Dad didn't constantly procrastinate and have to go out after 7 (yes 7!) soccer games to buy Mom a birthday present!!! Ha!
Oh well, it was all good. I got some quiet time (after watching the Hulk on TV for a while because the older 2 don't ever get to watch what they want to watch because everything they want to watch is not appropriate for the younger 3) and a present and I didn't once have to wipe any one's bottom! How's that for a birthday gift?
We headed to Mom's today to pick up the little ones and to have a yummy dinner and CAKE!!! Cheesecake to be exact, cause I just don't like Birthday Cake, weird I know!
and yes, they were STILL swimming...
their lips were blue but they were swimming! Oh well, at least they won't need a bath tonight:)
I have to say that even though I am just 3 short years away from that big (gulp) 50, I really don't feel very 50ish. Must be all that bottom wiping!! Hehe!
