I woke up this morning, dressed for Zumba (read: pulled on leggings and a tee shirt and braided my "bangs"), and headed upstairs to greet the babies and get our Monday started. And then walked into Miss V's room, took one look at her face, and saw our Monday was going nowhere. Except to Booger City. Dried on her forehead, her cheeks, hanging out of her nose. Green ones. Good morning to you too, V. Situation wasn't much better in the boy's room. Boogers there, too. Bonus: he was naked and had just peed on his foot, his bedding, and down the side of his crib. "WET!" Hellllllooooo, Monday. (Why do you hate me?)
So it was a pajama day for we three. The very best kind of pajama day, though, if you've got to stay inside in pajamas with boogery kids. Big fluffy snow flakes, all day long, peaceful and cozy. We headed down to the basement storage room, where I'd stashed a few fun Christmas gifts to pull out on just these types of occasions. (I feel like at this age, they enjoy/appreciate their gifts SO much more when given in small doses, you know?) We emerged with the treehouse tent Auntie LaLo and Uncle B sent. It was a HIT and I think it will be a permanent playroom fixture. (Great choice, LaLo & B!) They "helped" me put it together (read: Anderson smacked Vivian over the head with a tent pole), then dragged in books and dolls and blankies and a tractor or two when it was all ready to go. We just tree housed the day away. When we (read: they) weren't wiping boogery noses on my leggings/in my hair, anyway.
isn't that the cutest fort ever?

Even Grandpa enjoyed some "tweehouse" time when he stopped by to play.
Later, Bug somehow reached the top shelf in the bathroom and got ahold of my hand cream. The good (read: not cheap) jar. He had a Something About Mary moment. At least he smelled really sweet.
Here's hoping for a less boogery Tuesday. 37 degree high! Practically tropical. I just went back down to the basement and dragged out the blow up pool, actually. No worries, we'll use the 75 spf.
