The boys were out of school today, so we had a pretty relaxed day around the house. One thing I love about school is those few precious hours where the only person actively messing up the house is Neil. It's much easier to pick up after a two-year-old-- or better yet, lay him down for a nap!-- than it is to restore order to a home that has been subject to the day-long imaginations of Tom, Gord and friends. Luckily, I did make brownies for FHE which served as bribery for cleaning up the family room. Whew.

I am not at a point in my self-confidence that I would dare take or post a picture of my messy house, so I'll just leave this funny one of Neil and his fists full of love.

Hunter is aggressive in his affections too. Boys are so silly.

I think I'd like to reward myself with some brownies when I clean up a mess! That's a great idea. Having kids home from school definitely has its ups and downs. It's fun to see the kids playing, but it does disrupt the flow of things. We have a day off coming soon, too. Wish me luck!
