As I was tucking in my daughters, the eldest said, “We had a great day today, mom“.
It was a non-school day and they were up early. They were outside by 7 am on their scooters or bicycles – and they probably woke everyone else within hearing distance too.
In one hour time, they helped me prepared pancakes for breakfast – and nearly finished them before the plate even reached the table.
Then they were back outside for some more rounds before they started their favorite in-house activity – running a “restaurant” from our spare living room which is now only useable by others when they are in bed at night.
Throughout the whole day, sounds of little feet were heard upstairs and downstairs and no adults were left unpestered with their “What’s your order?” and “Here’s your order!” – and we can’t even “drink” or “eat” our “ordered food” in peace.
With their running up and down – taking and sending “orders” not to mentioned riding outside at any time of the day – they were often hungry and they ate nearly all the time!
Tired out from their busy day, they were in bed early and were asleep in seconds.
And as I watched them breathing contently in their sleep, I can happily say that, I too had a great day having them at home.
