What a difference a day makes

First off, thanks so much for all of the encouraging comments in the post below. You ladies are so sweet. :)

What a difference a day makes! We slept in on Friday (which was glorious in and of itself), then the TV was on significantly less throughout the day. Ava watched Laurie Berkner in the morning and "The Snowman" in the afternoon and that was it. Yay!

And this is what 5 p.m. looked like at our house:

Both kids were napping at the same time! This never happens because it's a cold day in hell when Ava takes a nap anymore. (She stopped napping months ago. Waaaaah. :( ) So while the napping was going on, I had some time to do this:

No, I didn't take a shower, do my hair or put on make-up, but I did make dinner without interruptions! :) Woohoo!

Just for kicks, here's another shot of the kids. :)

Sammie stopped napping too pretty much, but since she is still in her crib, she will at least 'rest' for an hour or so ... I am sure when toddler bed is introduced, that will stop ... *sigh* LOL

Life with 2 kiddos...somedays are the most challenging and you wonder how you are going to get through it, and then other days, are fun, sweet, and perfect- especially when everyone naps at the same time! Glad you got to make dinner in peace- who would have thought before kids, that would be such an accomplishment?

I can't even imagine how crazy and hectic your life must be. Even without a shower, hair done, makeup, etc. you still look very happy and beatiful!

Thanks, everyone. It was a happy day. :)

Anonymous (Ginger?) - Jody's Aunt Sherry actually made the blanket for Ava when she was born.
