I have wondered what my perfect day would be. Saturday I found out. I am going to schedule this to post later in the week, which should be a really crazy one, so that I will remember that we did have a perfect day.
First of all Matthew decided to create his own store with a box his dad had finished with.
See, he is selling Legos and other really cool stuff. I love when my kids have a streak of creativity that doesn't really involve me. Brittany joined in too and made a store in her room.
Wonder of wonders it snowed! Silly me, I didn't think there was enough to play in. Brittany and Matthew played out there all afternoon while Josh slept and I started a batch of monsters in my quiet house and William worked in the garage setting up his shop. I discovered this was an important element to my perfect day; I don't really want my kids to be gone, but I do want to be able to work on my own little thing and the quiet house didn't hurt. Then my kids settled in to scour the new Toys R Us add for Christmas wishes. I love that part of Christmas. I suppose once upon a time kids scoured the Sears Roebuck catalog, for my sister and I it was the JC Penny catalogue and for my kids it is Toys R Us.
Then William and I managed to get a babysitter and catch a quick dinner out and do a little shopping. Perfect Day! Good to remember they can happen especially when you have a crazy week planned!
