Today was one of those days when it felt like the sun & the moon alined & everything just fit. Our church gingerbread party was tonight but I was torn because Marissa was invited to a Christmas party by one of her school friends. I really struggled with keeping her with me or letting her go to the other party. In the end, I decided to let her go to her friends because she does not get to do that often.
So while Maddie & I went to the gingerbread party, the boys would be left on their own, since I knew bringing them along would just be asking for trouble from both of them. Matt decided they should go to a movie which was a fabulous idea.
Sometimes I forget how easy it is when I just have 1 kid to play with & have fun. There was no fighting, no choosing who to watch, it was just us.
Maddie ate a ton of cookies & candy & was on a complete sugar high for most of the evening. Usually this would drive me bonkers, especially because it is multiplied by 3. Tonight it was just part of the fun.
