Fridays are unofficial movie nights - unless we have plans (and we usually don't). So Fridays go a little something like this...
4:00pm - kids get home from daycare. Snacks. Playing in the living room (i.e. pouring every toy they own onto the floor). Music. Dancing, gymnastics on the couch, screaming, at least one tantrum and at least one time-out.
5:15/5:30 - dinner... which usually includes negotiation (i.e. eat 2 more bites and you can have dessert and/or Griffin, eat something other than frozen peas please).
6:00 - bath time! This now includes Griffin peeing on the potty before he gets into the bath (woot!). Which, in addition to making me hopeful that potty training won't be a huge PITA, also means G no longer pees in the bath.
6:15 - movie! Tonight was Lilo & Stitch - which was the kids' first viewing. They didn't want to watch it at first, but quickly got into it. The four of us snuggled on the couch, Sissy with her head on B's chest and Bubba curled up beside me.
7:30-7:45 - end of movie - cue kids dancing around to the cheesy music at the end of the movie. Then Bryan teaches the kids "pantsing", which they think is HILARIOUS and then they demand to be pantsed. Griffin figures out how to pants himself and then runs around with his pajama bottoms around his ankles, laughing hysterically. Penelope asks B to imitate a character from "Phineas and Ferb", which he does to thunderous applause from the peanut gallery. Kids do somersaults off the end of the couch, twirl around the living room, and run from one end of the room to another copying some pseudo-karate moves one of their daycare friends must have shown them. Kids do.not.stop.laughing until Mommy makes them brush their teeth.
7:45-8:00 - reading, kisses, bed.
