A couple days ago I was feeling really crummy. Too many nights of not getting sufficient sleep end up with me crashing and making up for all the lost sleep in one day. YIKES! Kyle came home from work so I could do just that. He went in to turn in his billing, then came back home around 10am. I went to bed promptly at 10:30am and slept til almost 4:00pm! The next day, I was still a little fluffy-headed, so Elena and Maya decided to be Mommies for the day. Normally they help me make lunch and dinner, but on this day, they did it all themselves. That morning, they had asked what was for lunch (it is not at all unusual for the kids to ask: "What's for dinner?" shortly after and sometimes before breakfast). I had told them we were having spaghetti.
Around 11:ish, Elena and Maya disappeared into the kitchen with all the ingredients needed to make lunch. A few times, Maya popped into the den to ask: "How much water do I put in the pot?," "Do I use the whole box of noodles?," etc. but other than that they were Jr. Mommies.
They even made Daniel's special spaghetti. (Daniel's currently on a gluten-free diet, so he gets rice noodles.)The meal was made much more delicious since I didn't have to lift a finger to make it! Yum-o! Thanks so much girls for a great lunch!
