Week with FIVE - Day 1

Yesterday started my first day out of five days with FIVE kids! I'm watching my 2 nieces this week and I have a lot of fun things planned. I put away the computer (well...not TOTALLY), stopped listing items in my Etsy stores, not on my message board as much and only recording my ONE soap opera. LOL

Yesterday we went to my Mother-in-law's house to meet them there and swim in her pool. My MIL is out of town but she gave me the keys knowing that the pool is a great way for the kids to have something to do and entertain them (and me) and also tire them out! I so miss our pool we had in our other house. :( But, I also have to weekly cleaning and scrubbing!

So the kids did that for a few hours and then we headed back home. We did a fun and easy craft with foam sun visors and fun foamy stickers. They decorated their visors not knowing what they were for b/c I had set them aside for Tuesday's events! heehee

Dinner was a hit: Popcorn chicken, Mac n Cheese and green beans.

Shower times...I thought would be a mess b/c FOUR girls...but it wasn't thankfully. I just wrote on an index card a number, numbered them 1 to 4 and then had each girl pull a card from my hand. That meant what number in line they were to take a shower. I got no complaints and no mess!

The chore chart I have for MY girls ended up being a chore chart for ALL the girls. I just teamed them up, 'buddy system', and they did their complaints.

The only 'bad' thing that went on yesterday was between my oldest and her attitude/sassiness/bossiness...need I say more. It got her into trouble yesterday a few times and it's driving me nuts! I hope she nixes that in the bud b/c she's gonna have a hard road ahead of herself around her peers at school and ME!

Other than that...I rate yesterday an 8 out of 10. Today...well...let's see if I lost my mind by doing a Park Hop of 5 local parks this morning. I woke up at 6 when hubby left for work and I decided to take advantage of the quiet. All the kids are still asleep. WHAT WAS I THINKING?! But once I'm up, I'm up. Can't get me back into bed and sleep...never could. I'll just deal with the tired tonite. I've got so many plans for today and things to get done.

So...until tomorrow.

I want to see if you have two days where you completely avoid the computer. I can't remember the last day I wasnt' on the computer. I think I'm addicted. :)
