Even Princesses Have to Sleep


Today my goal was to get through the laundry. ALL OF IT. I'm great at washing. The washing part is fun! I even do well switching the clothes to the dryer. It's the folding and putting away that I suck at. I had spent Saturday washing about 7 loads so today the goal was to fold and put away. Plus wash all of our Sunday stuff.

Since we decluttered our room on Saturday, the kids have been running back and forth through it. It's probably the longest room in the house. Basically, our master bedroom is a regular sized room with a sitting room attached and a master bath. I love how big our room is. But because it's so big, it accumulates a lot of junk. Now that the junk is out of the way, the room is back to being big(ish).

Pirate turned on my music for me while I was trying to do some exersizes and I just left it on. All three kids were running back and forth through the room, jumping and dancing. It's just so so cute! I wish my video camera was charged or you would have gotten pictures. Find out what were they dancing to.

With the peppy music, I was able to fold all kinds of laundry today. Yay!

In other news, Butterfly is OBSESSED with being a princess. I don't know what happened but now all she wants to do is wear dresses and dance and go on adventures. Oh, wait. I do know what happened. We bought her a Disney Princess Wii game. Yeah. Great game for her, not so much for the aftermath.

I also got a round of "I don't want to be a part of this family anymore!" That's a fun one. She moaned for a good hour before I sent her to her room ("If you don't want to be a part of this family, then stop making it so miserable and be lonely upstairs!") I think the boys are getting to her. They so want to do what she is doing. I can't wait until she goes to school and has a little bit of time away from everyone.

She also got up to use the potty late last night and forgot to open the lid before she sat down and peed. Icky.

Do you think I could use this with my Sunday school class this year? We're learning about the Old Testament.



  1. Are we going to make her a fabulous Princess dress for the Ren Faire this year?

  2. yeah, it's princess central around here too.

    LOL, I used a clip of "Close Every Door" last year in class, so I'm sure you can use it for the Old Testament. I'm looking for ways to sneak in Prince of Egypt and the Jonah Veggietales movie. ^_^

  3. I don't want to be part of this family anymore? Oh my goodness. I swear it must be girls that can come up with stuff like that! I doubt your boys will be the same!

    I swear upbeat music is the only way we get things done around here. And the only way I face getting through some days with these kids.
